India seeks to oust Chinese smartphone brands from Rs 12,000 phone market

Quick Summary

Recurring annual losses posted by most Chinese handset makers in India, despite their leading position, add to criticism of unfair competition.

It’s unclear whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government will announce any policies or use informal channels to convey its preference to Chinese companies, the people said.

New Delhi has already subjected Chinese firms operating in the country, such as Xiaomi and rivals Oppo and Vivo, to close scrutiny of their finances, which has led to tax demands and money laundering allegations.
