Temporary entry ban on Indians may impact Malaysia's electronics industry

 

As COVID-19 cases soared in India and its neighboring countries, Malaysia last Wednesday (May 5) announced a temporary entry ban on citizens of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal. It had earlier on April 28 stopped flights to and from India in an attempt to prevent a new COVID-19 variant from entering the country. The coastal state of Penang, which is the Electrical and Electronics (E & E) manufacturing hub of Malaysia, has expressed concerns that this will impact the state's manufacturers as it is dependent on skilled Indian software and information technology (IT) professionals.

Indian electronics makers stop production as COVID spreads and sales fall

 

Smartphone and electronics makers in India have cut down production significantly with sales falling to near zero due to rapid spread of COVID-19 in India, which has led to local lockdowns across the country. Electronics and smartphones are considered non-essential goods thereby sales through online channels, or e-commerce platforms are not currently allowed. Handset brands like Oppo, Vivo have completely shut down their factories while Xiaomi, Samsung and Apple partners have scaled-down production in the last few weeks. The report said that Apple partners and Samsung are running their factories at only 25-40% capacity to address global demand. The Consumer Electronics and Appliances Manufacturers Association (CEAMA), representing companies like Samsung and LG among other electronics makers, said companies would resume production when markets open.

Key Amendments simplifying imports under IGCR Rules

 

ELCINA had recommended changes in the procedures applicable under IGCR rules which were a great nuisance and source of harassment for component manufacturers importing inputs at concessional duty under these rules. This had been continuing since long and amendments made earlier had not resolved the issue to the industry’s satisfaction. On ELCINA’s recommendation addressed to Chairman, Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs, the following amendments have been notified by the Board vide Circular No. 10/2021 dated 17th May 2021, now known as IGCR Rules-2021. ELCINA appreciates and thanks CBIC for their support and quick response as these changes are industry friendly and address most of the concerns raised by members.  

Key Amendments in the New IGCR rules are as follows:

  1. As per change in clause 4.3, there is no need to seek permission for each import consignment, and instead one time import permission may obtained for the quantities to be imported over a period of upto one year.

  2. Clause 4.3 also eliminates the requirement to seek permission by physically submitting documents to the jurisdictional/local custom office for every import consignment. Now, the importer only needs to send an email to the local jurisdictional customs office, informing about the upcoming import consignment.

  3. Clause 4.4 removes the requirement to physically present the import permission which was obtained from the jurisdictional customs office at the “Port of import”. Now, the importer only needs to present a copy of intimation email to clear the import consignment.

  4. In another facility for importers, the new rules allow the importer to temporarily unload their imported material in any warehouse, other than their own factory, with a pre-information to the custom authorities.

Remove content that mentions 'Indian covid variant': Centre writes to all social media platforms

 

The Centre on Friday wrote to all social media platforms asking them to immediately remove all content that names, refers to, or implies that B.1.617 is an 'Indian variant' of the coronavirus. "It has come to our knowledge that a false statement is being circulated online which implies that an 'Indian variant' of coronavirus is spreading across the countries. This is completely FALSE. There is no such variant of Covid-19 scientifically cited as such by the World Health Organisation (WHO). WHO has not associated the term "Indian Variant" with the B.1.617 variant of the coronavirus in any of its reports," the ministry of electronics and information technology wrote. On May 12, the Centre clarified that there is no Indian variant of coronavirus as the World Health Organization does not name any variant after the country where it has been first reported from.

Considering support measures for MSME sector

 

The government is considering several measures such as liquidity support, easier compliance norms and tax relief on online transactions for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that are facing severe business disruptions due to the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic.

Uttar Pradesh MSMEs finding it difficult to operate amid Corona curfew

 

According to the IIA-association, Uttar Pradesh has around 30 lakh MSMEs comprising 90% micro units and 8% small units. The body says that while 180 out of the 240 units at Noida Special Economic Zone (NSEZ) are currently operational, the manpower has shrunk significantly due migrants returning to their hometowns. Bansal says only around 5,000 workers are currently available in Noida against 50,000 capacity and since all shops are closed except for those related with essential items, it is also hard to get maintenance work done at industrial units.

Data Breach: Activists may drag Cybersecurity regulator to court

 

Cybersecurity activists may drag the country’s cybersecurity watchdog to court for not taking any action against companies that have seen data breaches and not providing clarity on steps being taken to protect customers amid a surge in cases of personal information leaks. Their grouse is that Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has not taken any action despite the country witnessing a number of data breaches from big corporates such as Air India, BigBasket and Domino’s over the last few months. “Cybersecurity activists are exploring all possible options, including legal, to demand better accountability and transparency when it comes to data breaches,” said Suman Kar, CEO of Banbreach, a cybersecurity company specialising in network security, data breach management, and forensics.

How the PLI Scheme for telecom is a key factor for Digital India

 

The Government is determined to make India “Atmanirbhar” with world-class manufacturing infrastructure and transform it into a competitive global manufacturing destination. The Government had introduced aggressive duty reforms, various incentive schemes to encourage domestic manufacturing and reduce the import bills. However, the Government realized that the above measures were insufficient to compensate local disabilities faced by the Indian manufacturers compared to the international compete destinations. To counter the above, the Government’s think tank rejigged the entire incentive regime to be more focused on critical and import heavy sectors.

India ramps up military satellite plans

 

Satellites offer numerous ISR advantages, ones that the Indian military needs more than ever. As the need for maritime domain awareness grows, and as border tensions with China and Pakistan increase, vulnerabilities in Indian space security have caused Delhi to look to build up its minuscule number of military satellites. Presently, India has around 15 military-application satellites, with the latest GSAT-7A dedicated to the air force but shared by the army. In 2022, the $225 million GSAT-7R — an Indian Navy (IN) communications satellite — will replace GSAT-7 Rukmini launched eight years ago. It is the last of the Indian Space Research Organization's seven fourth-generation satellites with a 2,000nmi coverage range over the Indian Ocean.

ELCINA launches ELCINA Micro & Small Industries Forum (EMSIF) to support Micro & Small Industries

 

The Executive Committee of ELCINA has decided to establish a Micro & Small Industries Forum (MSIF) with the objective to focus on strengthening and growing our Micro and Small industries to the next level.

 

The Electronic Systems Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) Sector is growing very rapidly and policy support is being provided by Government to attract large investments. At the same time numerous Micro, Small and even Medium scale electronics units have shut down due to viability issues as a consequence of reduced and zero tariffs under ITA-1 and trade barriers which have rendered them unprofitable. MSIF is being established to enable small units to avail these benefits and become competitive.

 

The current government policies for supporting this vulnerable segment have been found inadequate and there benefits do not percolate down to the Small units. Since implementation of ITA-1 in April 2005, a very large number of MSME’s have fallen by the wayside as they just could not cope with the cut throat competition they faced from imports, especially from China and some South East Asian countries.

 

Membership Benefits of ELCINA Micro & Small Industries Forum (EMSIF)

  • ELCINA Membership Benefits

    • EMSIF members will get benefits of all ELCINA services with special focus on requirements of Small and Micro Enterprises.

“Indian Printed Circuit Board Industry & Market Research Report

The evolution of miniaturization and sub-miniaturization in the design of electronic equipment led to the emergence of a new technique of inter-component wiring and assembly known as the printed circuit board (PCB). This technology has now become the backbone of electronic devices. They provide the required mechanical support structure and electrical connect for the circuit. In addition to providing the connectivity, they also help to reduce the overall size and enhance the efficiency of the device.

  • By 2020, the electronics market in India is expected to increase with a CAGR of 25.1 per cent to USD 400 billion from USD 104 billion in 2015

  • Currently only 35% of this demand is currently being met by local manufacturers. And for the rest 65%, India is still dependent on imports.

  • Hence, PCB- being the backbone of electronics holds a huge demand in India - Current demand of USD 2.01 Billion represents the demand based on the total PCBs (which includes both the bare board PCBs and the populated PCBs)

  • Current market size for bare PCBs is USD 1.2 Billion - Only 30% of this demand for bare PCBs is currently being met by local PCB manufacturers. And for the rest 70%, India.
