Auto components India
A Battle Of Perspectives
The OEM and tier supplier equations have been largely a ground for fair play. There are exceptions and the government has resolved to intervene in such cases. With over 800 members, the Automotive Components Manufacturers Association (ACMA) of India is known to represent 85 per cent of the auto components industry’s turnover in the organised sector. In line with its charter to develop a globally competitive automotive components industry and play a larger hand in strengthening national economic development; promote business through international alliances, the apex body has taken a new stance. ACMA has joined the global ‘Right-To-Repair’ movement to safeguard the interests of suppliers and end consumers alike.
To support the critical movement, it signed the new position statement that lists the core beliefs of the movement and the objectives and intended outcomes of right-to-repair legislation. The document sets forth 10 best practice principles for developing a framework that any supporting country can use and adapt to their needs. That movement which applies to electrical appliances like smartphones, tablets and laptops also applies to automotive products further blurring the lines that separate a tech company from a conventional automotive company. The OEMs deem the enhanced access to mechanical and electronic data a safety risk even as suppliers push for it to be passed as a law. A middle path certainly bodes well for the consumer.
