New Delhi, Feb 23 (KNN) Sona BLW Precision Forgings, operating under the brand Sona Comstar, announced on Thursday that it has successfully secured certification under the prestigious Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the automotive sector.

This marks a significant milestone for the company as it becomes the first automotive component manufacturer to achieve this recognition.

The certification comes as a result of Sona Comstar's diligent efforts, with the company filing seven applications for various products under the PLI scheme.

With a substantial budgetary outlay of Rs 25,900 crore over five years, starting from FY24, the scheme is poised to catalyse growth and innovation within the sector.

Sona BLW Precision Forgings' successful certification under the PLI scheme underscores the company's dedication to driving technological advancements in the automotive industry while contributing to the nation's economic development.
