The specification systems available to the Indian component manufacturers are discussed and the influence these have on the markets are examined. Quality control methods used to meet specifications are noted.

The influence of the Indian Government's pricing policy on the encouragement of indigenous production of components has an important effect, particularly with regard to the export and import of components. The differences that exist between component groups are outlined and it is shown that there are still important areas where overseas collaboration is encouraged.
