NEW DELHI: Maruti Suzuki, Hero MotoCorp, Bosch, Mitsubishi Electric and Tata Autocomp are among the 95 companies that have received approval under the government’s ambitious Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme for Automobile and Auto Component Industry in India.  

According to a notification by the Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI), the scheme has been successful in attracting a proposed investment of Rs 74,850 crore, 75% more than the target estimate of Rs 42,500 crore.
The proposed investment of Rs 45,016 crore is from approved applicants under the Champion Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Incentive Scheme and Rs 29,834 crore from approved applicants under the Component Champion Incentive Scheme.
