India stops launching Chinese-made devices

India's attempts to manufacture indigenous technology could include a halt in marketing of Chinese-made products.

According to Reuters, India's Ministry of Communications has stopped approving devices with wireless network equipment made in China since at least November in order to pressure companies to manufacture products in India.

According to reports, the decision will be led by the Wireless Planning and Coordination Department at the Ministry of Communications. In addition to Chinese companies such as Dell and HP, Chinese companies such as Lenovo, OPPO and Xiaomi have postponed the launch of more than 80 products.

In addition, orders from some Indian companies have brought in products from China. These orders are currently approved by the Wireless Planning and Coordination Hall. These orders brought some products from China.

Final electronic devices such as bluetooth speakers, wireless headphones, smartphones, smart watches, and laptops with wireless network modules imported from China have been delayed.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi) has called for strengthening economic independence, and India has taken a strong stance on Chinese imports.

His nationalist policies have helped support the growth of smartphone assembly in South Asian countries, and the government appears intent on persuading companies to move more electronics to India.

The idea of ​​the government is to get companies to produce these products in India, but tech companies are struggling because doing business in India means a lot of investment and a long wait for a comeback. On the other hand, preventing the government from imposing tariffs on imported products means a potential loss of revenue.

In India, companies were previously allowed to risk introducing wireless devices themselves, which facilitated imports. However, new regulations in March 2019 required companies to obtain government approval.

While India is the second largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world due to its market potential, it does not have the right scale or scope to allow the company to invest heavily in IT products and smart wearables.

The long delay in approval by the Ministry of Wireless Planning and Coordination also confirms India's strategy to limit China's impact on technology and the economy, especially after the border dispute with Beijing last year.

This week, despite approval from European and South Korean competitors, the Modi government removed Chinese device maker Huawei from the list of participants in the 5G study.

Once 5G is rolled out in India, New Delhi will likely prevent telecom operators from using Huawei devices.

When Indian ports stopped importing goods from China last year, US companies at the Sino-Indian border faced tensions.

India's tight control over quality licensing for Chinese electronics in the past year has also slowed imports of iPhone models.

After the company obtained the security clearance from the Indian Quality Supervision Authority, the approval of the Ministry of Wireless Planning and Coordination became the main obstacle to importing electronic equipment from China.
