To advocate about the mobility industry, Consumer Electronics and Appliances Manufacturers Association (CEAMA) on Monday formed a mobile and communications council.

The council in collaboration with other industry associations will present an industry consensus view to the India Government on crucial issues pertaining to the growth and development of the Indian mobility industry from its existing scenario.

“I believe that together with our stakeholders we will create value addition for the mobile manufacturers in the country. The council will strive to facilitate formation of an ecosystem that provides a nurturing policy, regulatory and legal framework for the industry,” said Ravinder Zutshi, chairman, CEAMA mobile and communications council, in a statement.

The introduction of this new committee shall support the government’s initiative to promote manufacturing in India.

Manish Sharma, president CEAMA and managing director Panasonic India and South Asia, said a local component ecosystem is still not fully in place, resulting in dependency on international machineries and mechanisms and hence the industry should be given an opportunity and encouragement in this segment.

“We believe the new Mobile and Communication council will appropriately connect and be able to propagate the recommendations of industry players to government and policy makers to ensure that majority of components be made domestically,” Sharma added.

CEAMA is an all India body of manufacturers of televisions, entertainment electronic products & home appliances and acts as a catalyst in the promotion of industry, trade, technology and entrepreneurship.
