Talking about their Make in India outlook, Aashish comments, “Currently, though we have 500-700 SKUs, we are importing most our products from abroad, and not manufacturing in India. But surely we want to expand our manufacturing setup in India once the COVID-19 epidemic settles down. Make in India and vocal for local are good campaigns. Local manufacturing of products like smart watches, IoT products, etc has a big future scope in India. Demand for local products is expected to increase further in the coming years as people are growing averse to imported products from China.”
