Even as automotive component manufacturers resumed operations, import bottlenecks are known to have hit the supply chain. Citing the complexity of the automotive value chain and the need for clearance permit of imports, with the backdrop of import congestion, Deepak Jain, President, Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) addressed the issue by drawing attention to inordinate delays in clearance of import consignments due from China. Alleging a 100 per cent manual inspection leading to delays, he said, “The Indian auto component industry is committed to the ‘Atmanirbhar vision’. Most of the items imported from China are critical components including engine parts and electronics items for which India is yet to develop domestic competence.” “The automotive value chain is a highly complex, integrated and interdependent one; non-availability of even a single component can, in fact, lead to stoppage of the vehicle manufacturing lines,” he cautioned.
