IESA asks ISRO type commission for electronics

The Indian Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) has asked the government to set up a national electronics commission in lines with India’s space agency to build homegrown electronics ecosystem that would help the country reduce imports of semiconductor chips and sensors. It has also asked the government to earmark $ 1 billion for a ESDM Innovation fund for helping startups design and build local electronics products.

“We are envisaging the creation of National Electronics Mission on the similar lines of Indian space research organisation (Isro) for spearheading all these activities and for making India a design led manufacturing hub for the world,” Dr. Satya Gupta, Vice Chairman, IESA said in a statement.
