Last month Patently Apple reported that Hon Hai's Chairman Liu Yangwei recently met with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi to show him the layout of their new Indian plant. Hon Hai plans to invest about US$700 million (equivalent to NT$21.623 billion) to build a new factory in India, near the airport in Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka, which may assemble Apple products. The report also pointed to a new secondary plant coming to the Indian State of Telangana to produce AirPods.

Today, the Indian press is reporting that Foxconn is reportedly set to start the construction of an iPhone plant in Bengaluru next month next to Bengaluru International Airport next month by Hon Hai Technology Group, whose part is Foxconn.

India's state high level clearance committee (SHLC), headed by Karnataka Chief Minister Bommai had cleared Foxconn’s proposal.

The mentioned plant by Foxconn will also reportedly be set up on a 300-acre plant and is expected to be the largest mobile manufacturing unit in India. In addition to the manufacturing, the plant is also reportedly expected to create about 50,000 jobs over five years.

Apart from Bengaluru, Foxconn is also reportedly setting up another plant in Telangana. As per last media reports, Foxconn won an order to make AirPods in India and the construction of the facility in Telangana may start in the second half of 2023.

We reported yesterday that Apple's CEO is set to meet with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi whose government has been pushing for electronics manufacturing in his country and has offered billions of dollars in incentives to attract Apple's manufacturing partners like Foxconn Technology Group and Pegatron Corp.

The timing of Cook's meeting is interesting considering that it was also reported yesterday that India's Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that her country is seeking to be more involved in world supply chains and serve as an alternative to China through output-incentive plans.
