India has reportedly stopped launching Chinese equipment to drive domestic production.
India's efforts to boost tech production in the slotxo country could include halting product launches. Reuters sources claim that the country's communications ministry has suspended approval of devices with China's WiFi modules since "at least" in November, reportedly pressuring companies to manufacture products in India. The move has reportedly delayed the release of more than 80 products for American companies such as Dell and HP, as well as Chinese companies such as Lenovo,
Oppo and Xiaomi.The ministry has not yet responded to a request for comment. Insiders also said the government did not respond to companies or industry groups.The delay came shortly after a border dispute with China led India to ban TikTok and other apps from China, although the two nations relaxed their defenses at the time. However, it can be safely said that the report could strain ties if true - India would
directly hurt Chinese businesses by forcing a delayed release of the product.Affected companies will also have a hard time. They often cannot ignore India as one of the world's largest technology markets. But a commitment to local produce often involves huge investments, which can take years to produce results. The added pressure may make them make faster decisions. But that alternative may not be easier.
