Through reliable & confirmed sources, major decisive development and process for developing Varanasi as Mobile Manufacturing Plant has been started. It is being promoted in China and very soon the Top 7-manufacturers in China are expected to sign MOU(Memorandum of Understanding) for establishing a complete project eco-system for “desi” smartphones in India.
Leading the initial bandwagon for local manufacturing, China based OEM/ODM brands under an working alliance with Smart Namo, will first serve a market entry solution provider and facilitator for mobile phone eco-system.
Selecting Varanasi , as the hubspot for manufacturing smartphones/feature phones….in heart of Uttar Pradesh..will target the 10 Billion USD smartphone consumption in India and also provide an opportunity for workforce talent grooving & economic self reliance as per the Narendra Modi vison or master plan for India.
