Apple manufacturing plant in India is ready by 2017

Assembling iPhones in India could be crucial for Apple to make its products available at lower price.

After months of back and fourth with the local government, Apple is ready to assemble its smartphones in India as soon as April 2017, reports TOI.

The company has partnered with Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer Wistron to assemble iPhones in Bangalore, the report claims. Wistron is setting up a facility in Peenya, an industrial area near Bangalore.

The iPhone maker is very serious about manufacturing in India, and Bangalore, often referred to as the Silicon Valley of India, is the place it is looking at, the report claims, adding that Apple wants to push its manufacturing processes to fullest in India by the end of 2017.

Assembling iPhones in India could be crucial for Apple, which needs to make its products available at lower price. The Indian government currently imposes heavy taxes on electronic products like smartphones imported to India to encourage local production.

By manufacturing or assembling its iPhones in India, the company would be able to abide by country’s "Make in India" program, an initiative undertaken by Narendra Modi-led government.
