Main markets such because the US, Hong Kong and Japan import telephones priced upwards of Rs. 15,000.

The report additionally stated that the rising home output has led to the nation changing into largely self-sufficient on the consumption entrance. In fiscal 2022, the nation noticed a 15-20 p.c enhance in cellular consumption to Rs. 2.5 lakh crore, led by a fall within the lifecycle of the handsets, growing digitalisation, and simple financing phrases.
