Public procurement localisation

 On 1 October 2014, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology added biometric iris sensors to the list of manufactured electronic goods where a preference is given to domestic products in procurement by government minsitries due to security considerations.

The Notification specifies the minimum percentage of required domestic procurement, the percentage of the total value added that qualifies the product as domestically manfuactured and the inputs and processes that will be considered for assessing whether the product is classified as domestically manufactured.

The percentage of procurement for domestically manfuactured biometric iris sensors is 50%, while the percentage value addition required in the Bills of Material (BOM) for the sensors to be classified as domestically manufactured is 30% for year 1 (up to 31 March 2016). The domestic value addition for Year 2 will increase by 5% from the current requirements.

The inputs in the BOM considered for the above would include the circuit boards, optics, CMOS sensor, plastic housing, USB cables, assembly & testing and design & development.
