Govt mulls bans on imported solar equipment

The government is considering a ban on import of equipment for projects under the National Solar Mission. The move will benefit domestic solar equipment suppliers, but project developers said it could prevent the government from achieving its target of 20,000 MW of solar power generation capacity by 2022. Over 70 per cent of plants being set up under the first round of the mission are based on imported equipment. There is an active consideration to either ban or further restrict the import of equipment for solar projects, especially in the case of sourcing cells and modules from Indian suppliers. Countries such as US, Canada, France and China have already stipulated similar policies to promote indigenous development of their solar industry, thus creating a robust manufacturing base, creating jobs and attracting foreign investments and technologies.
