India imposes licensing requirements on imported laptops, tablets and more

According to Reuters reports, India in order to promote the local manufacturing industry, announced on Thursday that the import of laptops, tablets and personal computers on the implementation of licensing requirements, effective immediately.

The move could seriously affect the operations of companies such as Apple, Dell and Samsung in the Indian market.

India’s previous regulations allowed companies to freely import products such as laptops, and after the new rules came into effect, companies that want to continue to sell these imported products in India will need to obtain a special license.

Industry executives said that the implementation of India’s import licensing system means extending the waiting time for each product to enter the Indian market, especially need to consider applying in advance to meet the demand for sales during the holiday season.

The Indian government did not give a reason for the move in its notification, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been promoting local manufacturing and curbing imports under his “Make in India” program.

Research firm Counterpoint estimates that India’s laptop and PC market is worth $8 billion a year, two-thirds of which is imported.

Apple, Dell and Samsung did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a 170 billion rupee financial incentive program in May this year to attract laptop, tablet and other hardware makers to invest in local production.
