Apple has been in talks with the Indian government for months. The Cupertino tech giant has allegedly asked for a 15-year tax break, the possibility of which is still being negotiated.
By setting up its own manufacturing plant in India, Apple will be able to open direct retail stores and gain more presence in a country where it has extremely limited market share. In 2016, Apple shipped some 2.5 million iPhones in India, but still managed to only secure the 10th position in a market lead by Samsung and dominated by Android.
