Well according to the sources, Apple’s suppliers Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron have all applied for a $6.65 billion scheme to increase production in India. Meanwhile, Samsung has also applied for PLIs in the country.


But not only the Indian government but the other countries’ governments are now trying to do the Production Linked Incentives (PLI) plan offers companies incentives on sales of devices by the foreign as well as domestic production as well. By way of this plan, the government is hoping to attract more smartphone manufacturer’s to start production in the country.

Well, probably It’s noteworthy that Apple already has its suppliers Foxconn and Wistron’s assembly lines in India and has recently started producing the flagship iPhone 11in the country. Moreover, Pegatron, which is one of the biggest suppliers for Apple is also in talks with various states into the various countries as well as states of the country set up its plant.
