India checkmates China in snatching Computer manufacturing from the Dragon

Feb. 28, 2021

India plans to offer Computer Manufacturers with existing facilities in China with cash of up to 4% of the value of their sales for shifting their facilities to India– a master stroke to start challenging the dragon in its own den.

The program enables companies that expand local production of laptops, tablets and other computers with cash incentive to shift to India.

The exact cash available to the companies will depend on how much they increase domestic production over the four years starting April.

India’s minister for electronics and information technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad was upbeat as India tries to bring the world’s top five global computer and related products manufacturing champions to India and produce for the world to tap the domestic and export market. He mentioned that India had already completed talks with top manufacturers and the companies are eagerly waiting to manufacture in India. Apple and HP are two computer manufacturing giants mentioned already by Indian officials.
