Laptop import ban in India
A few days back, the Government of India introduced an immediate import restriction targeting laptops, tablets, and personal computers. The new regulation stipulates that any entity or company seeking to bring such electronic devices from abroad for sale will have to secure a "Valid Licence for Restricted Imports" in India. The laptop import ban will directly impact major companies like Apple, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Acer, Samsung, and others. The Modi Government's motive behind this directive appears to be fostering a transition toward increased domestic production. Furthermore, a major proportion of laptops that were coming to India were from China. Companies used to manufacture laptops in China and sell it in India. Therefore, this decision is another strike by the Government of India against China.
