Automated online data transfer launched for capturing critical data

The Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) launched automated online data transfer for capturing critical data related to Domestic Value Addition(DVA) in the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the auto sector.

What is ERP?

All approved applicants of the PLI Scheme have their own IT (Information technology)-enabled ERP system. It is a type of software that organizations use to manage business activities. It enables smooth transfer of data from the applicant’s existing ERP system to PLI Auto portal of MHI.

  • There is Application Programming Interface (API) in the ERP system of the applicant which enables automaticity and paperless processing in this scheme.
  • This system of automaticity and paperless working should be continued over the period of 5 years under the Scheme i.e. from FY23 to FY27.
