Reuters exclusively reports India holds up approvals for China-made wireless devices

Reuters reported exclusively that India has held up approvals for import of wifi modules from China for months, driving companies such as U.S. computer makers Dell and HP and China’s Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Lenovo to delay product launches in a key growth market. Two industry sources familiar with lobbying efforts by firms seeking clearance told Reuters the Communications Ministry’s Wireless Planning and Coordination (WPC) Wing has withheld approval since at least November.
