Make In India: DataWind completes first month of production; ships 80,000 tablets

NEW DELHI: India-based low cost Internet connectivity and wireless web access products manufacturer DataWind Inc. has shipped the first 80,000 Internet-enabled tablets and smartphones from its new production facility that opened last month in Amritsar.

 

After establishing India’s first and only manufacturing facility for touch panels in 2013 and now by producing the majority of its products in India, DataWind has taken a major step in the direction of realizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ vision.

 

“By producing state-of-the-art and most affordable devices in India, we not only wish to supply products that would make Indians proud, but boost skills in India by generating highly skilled employment locally,” said DataWind president & CEO Suneet Singh Tuli. 

 

The company expects to continue expanding its position in the Tablet PC market by increasing the range of products manufactured at the Amritsar facility.

 

“The economics of this move to India are also supported by the growing demand for our products – all of which come bundled with one year of pre-paid Internet access in India on the Reliance network. By providing the most affordable Internet access solution in the country, we expect to take the Digital India initiative to the next stage by insuring every citizen has access to education, commerce and government services,” said Tuli.

 

DataWind’s patented technology allows for the wireless delivery of a basic Internet experience across existing network infrastructure at a fraction of the typical cost and bandwidth.

 

The company’s Internet-enabled smartphones and tablets are affordably priced by the millions of people in emerging markets who do not have Internet access.
