Buy 30% of telecom gear from Indian manufacturers, proposes DOT
Saturday, 28th May 2011
The Department of Telecom is backing a proposal to reserve 30 per cent of all electronic equipment procurement to those items that are manufactured in the country. This will include telecom gear and IT peripherals.

Though the proposal is for restricting the quota system only on purchases by Government owned companies, the DoT has said that the quota system in the telecom sector should be equally imposed on both private operators and public sector units.

The proposal to give preferential treatment to �Made in India' products has been mooted by a committee formed by the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council (NMCC) and the Advisor to Prime Minister on Public Information, Infrastructure and Innovation.
