200 low-cost airports in next 20 years
India’s Capital Goods manufacturing industry serves as a strong base for its engagement across sectors such as Engineering, Construction, Infrastructure and Consumer goods, amongst others. The industry contributed approximately $ 10.4 bn to exports in 2016-17.
Capital Goods industry in India provides approximately 1.4 mn direct and 7 mn indirect jobs.
Market-oriented reforms such as "Power for All" along with plans to add 93 GW by 2022 will generate huge demand for power transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment.

Generally, a group of industry beneficiaries can make a proposal. Technology developers or infrastructure SPVs could also make a proposal which includes Central/State PSUs.
The DHI Capital Goods Scheme is a pilot scheme designed to support the industry to modernize technologies from current status to global level and beyond. For this two windows are provided. For those technologies, which are commercially not available for transfer, indigenous development at IITs and like institutions by a consortium of technology seekers grants support given upto 80% of the cost of development subject to maximum of $ 15.38 million per case within a budget of $ 38.46 million. Those technologies, which are commercially available and can be acquired by a company or a group of companies the scheme provides grant support upto 25% of the technology acquisition costs or $ 1.53 million whichever is less, within an overall budget of $ 7.69 million.
The scheme also supports establishment of Common Engineering Facilities by a group of user industries. Upto 80% of the project cost could be given as grants. The Scheme also supports setting up one each of Test Centre for Earthmoving & Construction Equipments and Industrial Park. ( 100% upto $ 15.38 million and upto 80% subject to maximum of $ 19.23 million).
The expression 'unavailed CENVAT credit' means the amount that remains after subtracting the amount of CENVAT credit already availed in respect of capital goods by the taxable person under the existing law from the aggregate amount of CENVAT credit to which the said person was entitled in respect of the said capital goods under the existing law.

The plan aims at assured availability of quality power at competitive rate which is a sine qua non for industrial and economic development.
For an efficient and developed power sector in a country of India’s size, a strong domestic electrical equipment manufacturing base is essential.
