C-DoT prepared to manufacture cheap 3G/4G Mobiles Manufacturing
Following the footsteps of Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi campaign ” Make in India ” , C-DoT is finally ready for manufacturing low cost handsets for India.
Vipin Tyagi, C-DoT Director, stated ” We have a capacity to build 3G and 4G handsets in India. Depending upon the chipset, a device in a price range of Rs 2,000 to 3,000 can be possibly produced, and market is selling handsets at inflated prices .”
Tyagi further stated “We can look at high value-added products. If the device cost comes down in tandem with Internet charges, then it could prove to be a key growth driver for India.”
C-DoT is already on the way to Digital India programme with an initial cost projection of Rs 1.13-lakh crore, envisaging to digitally empower 1.3 billion Indians with access to seamless broadband connectivity and mobile devices.
Lenovo has already announced low cost 3G/4G handsets recently. Other manufacturers like Micromax, Maxx Mobilink followed by Lava are also on track of ” Make in India “.
If it happens, China market will be in deep trouble as its already eyeing India as one of the key buyers of Smartphones. India has the full opportunity to en cash this situation and apart from catering Indian market, We can easily capture World market.
