AP signs MoUs with Micromax, Celkon and Karbonn Mobiles
In its steps towards becoming an electronics manufacturing hub, the Government of Andhra Pradesh signed MoUs with low-cost cellphone-makers Micromax, Celkon and Karboon Mobiles.
In a late night event in Vijayawada today in presence of Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, the MoUs were signed.
This envisages setting up of mobile manufacturing hub at Tirupati, with a focus on development of an electronic cluster.
With this, Andhra Pradesh is targeting manufacturing of 6 million to 7 million phones per month in the next year.
According to the Chief Minister, this will be a huge boost to electronics manufacturing in Andhra Pradesh.
“We recently had Xiaomi’s entry into Andhra Pradesh, now we will have Micromax, Celkon and Karboon Mobiles. I’m confident that these companies will create an electronics manufacturing ecosystem in the state,” he said, adding that more companies means more employment.
