Samsung may shift major part of phone production to India

new Delhi. India's campaign to become a leading country in mobile production has started getting success. According to an Economic Times report, Samsung, the leading phone manufacturer, can deploy a large part of its mobile production unit in India. The government has launched a production linked incentive scheme for mobile phone manufacturers to set up their units in India. Samsung has also made its application under this scheme.

Based on the source, the report said that Samsung is planning to produce mobiles in India under the incentive scheme of the Government of India, which will affect the production capacity in countries like Vietnam. South Korea's electronic giant Samsung will manufacture devices worth Rs 3 lakh crore in the next 5 years under the government's Production Linked Incentive Scheme.

Vietnam is Samsung's second largest manufacturing center after China. If Samsung shifts part of its unit to India, then not only will it provide employment on a large scale, but India will also become a hum manufacturing center in the coming years. The government launched the PLI scheme on 1 April, in which several production incentives for domestic manufacturing units were announced. As of August 1, around 22 companies have applied for the scheme. It also includes Samsung.

The government has estimated that the companies participating in this scheme will manufacture more than Rs 11 lakh crore worth of equipment in the country in the coming 5 years, out of which Rs 7 lakh crore equipment will be exported.
