India Cuts Import Duty For Some Mobile Parts To 10% To Boost Manufacturing In India

The Indian government has announced a reduction in import duty on parts used for mobile manufacturing from 15% to 10% to boost phone manufacturing in India. As per the notification issued by the government, import duty has been lowered on parts such as battery covers, main lenses, back covers, antennae, SIM sockets, and other mechanical items of plastic and metal. And the input duty on inputs used to manufacture these components has been cut to zero, as per the announcement. 

The Indian government aims to make the country a manufacturing hub though duties on mobile phone parts were the highest among other manufacturing countries like China, Vietnam, and Thailand which acted as a hurdle. Now when the duties have been reduced significantly, it will for sure help India to achieve its goal thus attracting more players in India to manufacture phones. 

And if we talk about the reaction that this move has invited “Duty cuts on import of mobile phone parts would help big global manufacturers to set up large scale mobile assembly lines in India, and substantially increase exports of mobile phones,” said Rajat Mohan, a director at tax consultancy firm
