India: Mobile manufacturing growing at a fast pace

September 17, 2016

raviPrime Minister Narendra Modi’s Make in India mission has achieved some success in boosting mobile manufacturing and assembling in the country. The number of handsets manufactured in India nearly doubled in FY16 from the previous year, said Ravi Shankar Prasad, information technology minister, at a recent event.
Data sourced from the Indian Cellular Association (ICA) and Consumer Electronics & Appliance Manufacturers Association (CEAMA) show that 110 million handsets were produced in FY16, compared with 58 million in FY15. While Prasad exudes confidence and industry body ICA expects the FY17 to see 175 million handsets rolling out of Indian factories, a closer look at the numbers shows that more mobile handsets were produced in India before the Nokia factory was shutdown in 2014.Source
