Telecom Equipment Manufacturers Association of India (TEMA)

Since 1st June, 1990


TEMA - Telecom Equipment Manufacturers Association of India is India's first and oldest association in Indian Telecom Sector. Established in 1990 (1989-Genesis of TEMA Birth). TEMA has always advocated and stressed the need for strengthening the domestic manufacturing of telecom equipment in India so as not only to become self reliant but also export.

Working closely with the Government on growth and indigenization of the Electronics/Telecom Sector, TEMA is the first one in bringing focus on the associated security risks due to continuous dependence on imported network equipment and components for the telecom networks in India. To promote and develop the "Make in India" brand globally, TEMA also promoted an international body CMAI for International cooperation and policy dialogue.

With 48,500 members and MOUs with 74 International Organizations, CMAI is now the largest ICT association in Asia for global cooperation and policy dialogue not only in the sector of Telecom but also in all associated sectors such as ICT, Education, Cyber Security, Skill development, Innovation and Start-Up ecosystem.
