Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL), was setup under the Department of Atomic Energy in 1967 with a view to generate a strong indigenous capability in the field of professional grade electronics. The initial accent was on total self-reliance and ECIL was engaged in the Design, Development, Manufacture and Marketing of several products with emphasis on three technology lines:

  • Computers,
  • Control Systems, and
  • Communications.

Over the years, ECIL pioneered the development of various complex electronic products without any external technological help and scored several 'firsts' in these fields prominent among them being the country's:

  • First Digital Computer,
  • First Solid State TV,
  • First Control & Instrumentation for Nuclear Power Plants,
  • First Earth Station Antenna,
  • First Computrized Operator Information System,
  • First Radiation Monitoring & Detection Systems,
  • First Automatic Message Switching Systems,
  • First Operation & Maintenance Center For E-108 Exchange,
  • First Programmable Logic Controller,
  • First Solid State Cockpit Voice Recorder,
  • First Electronic Voting Machines.

The Company played a significant role in the training and growth of high caliber technical and managerial manpower especially in the fields of Computers and Information Technology. Though the initial thrust  was on meeting the  Control & Instrumentation requirements of the Nuclear Power Program, the expanded scope of self-reliance pursued by ECIL enabled the company to develop various products to cater to the needs of:

  • Defence,
  • Civil Aviation,
  • Information & Broadcasting,
  • Telecommunications,
  • Insurance,
  • Banking,
  • Police, and Para-Military Forces,
  • Oil & Gas,
  • Power,
  • Space Education,
  • Health,
  • Agriculture,
  • Steel and Coal sectors and various user departments in the Government domain.

ECIL thus evolved as a multi-product company serving multiple sectors of the Indian economy with emphasis on import of country substitution and development of products & services that are of economic and strategic significance to the country.


The Company's vision is to contribute to the country in acheving self reliance in strategic electronics.


ECIL's mission is to consolidate its status as a valued national asset in the area of strategic electronics with specific focus on Atomic Energy, Defence, Security and such critical sectors of strategic national importance.
