We recently heard that Apple’s plans to launch their retail stores in India may have been delayed and that it may be a while before Apple Stores open in the country. The news came after a ruling that Apple had to abide with the 30% rule in India for foreign company’s, this means that 30% of goods sold needs to be produced locally.
According to a recent report, India may actually let the company open their Apple Stores in India without making them comply with the 30% rile.
According to a recent report, Apple may be able to open their retail store in India without immediately complying with the 30% rule and they would then have two or three years to comply with the rule.
This would mean that Apple has between two and three years to start manufacturing some of their devices in India, once they start making some of their products in India then they would meet the made in India requirements.
