“Will not issue any notification until completion of review of PMA policy.”


Minister of State
Ministry of Communications and Information Technology

It has been decided that no notification under the policy with regard to procurement in private sector, of products having security implications be issued till such a review is completed.

The government has thus so far issued detailed notifications for 23 telecom products and six electronics/IT related products for which preference to domestic manufacturers is to be provided in government procurement.

After considering the pros and cons of alternative approaches to handling security related products, the government has decided to review the policy.

The extent of government procurement from domestic manufacturers shall not be less than 30 per cent of the total procurement value of notified electronic products.
