A protest by a well-known Indian government partner about the failure of a well-known Indian company to assemble iPhones has not sparked protests from a prominent Indian government partner. On December 12, nearly all 2000 employees at weft’s narasapura manufacturing plant took part in violent riots against the company. The activities included destroying furniture and assembly units, smashing windows in administrative offices and setting fire to vehicles on site. Hundreds of workers have been arrested or detained by police, Reuters reported. The government of Karnataka has denounced the violence and vowed to take the harshest action against lawbreakers. The All India Central Trade Union Council, India’s main trade union, said the state government was extremely soft on the company and turned a blind eye to all violations of the facility. Workers say an engineering graduate was promised 21000 rupees (US $285) a month, but got 16000 rupees (217 dollars) at first, then reduced to 12000 rupees (163 dollars) in the past three months. Wages for non engineers are said to have been cut to 8000 rupees (US $108), with some claiming to receive only 500 rupees (US $6.78). < / P > < p > Apple was forced to stop production in India and announced that it would investigate whether the supplier violated its iPhone assembly guidelines. According to reports, the narasapura factory has been recruiting a large number of workers, with an initial goal of employing 2000 workers since August, with the ultimate goal of creating 10000 jobs. Apple continues to expand its capacity in India, in part to help sales in the region, but it is also likely to diversify its overall manufacturing business away from its strategic dependence on China. Wistron, together with Foxconn and Pegatron, Apple’s assembly partners, applied for India’s $6.6 billion & quot; production linkage incentive program, which aims to build India’s manufacturing industry by attracting smartphone and mobile device manufacturers.
