Production of LED lamps that consume about 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs has increased to 3 crore per month against 10 lakh a year ago. LED lamps production is likely to grow much further as the distribution programme reaches a pan-India level, resulting in prices as low as Rs. 73 per unit against Rs. 319 for a 7 watt LED lamp. While major players like Philips, Havells and Surya Roshni have ramped up their LED production, EESL’s 20% reserve of LED tenders for small firms has seen many companies like MIC Electronics and EcoLight LED Systems increase their capacities.
