It been over a month since top smartphone brands were forced to shut down their factories in India, following the lock down that was imposed by the government in early March in response to the Covid 19 pandemic.
But now as the government is gradually easing restrictions, those companies are set to resume phone productions.
In a statement issued by Samsung which has the largest Phone plant in India said that it has resumed phone productions with limited work capacity.
We have received requisite permissions to restart production at our Noida factory. On Thursday, the factory started limited operations, which will be scaled up over a period of time. Employee safety and well-being remaining our absolute priority, we have ensured that all hygiene and social distancing measures are maintained at the premises, as per government guidelines.
Earlier this week, in a call with journalists, Xiaomi said that the company’s partner Foxconn has received permission to resume production at its facility in Andhra Pradesh.
Also Oppo confirmed that it’ll be resuming production soon in its factory situated in Greater Noida.
Vivo also confirmed that they have resumed work at a 30% limited capacity.
We have got approval to resume production with about 30% of the capacity. We shall begin production with around 3000 employees.
