What are Panasonic’s goals?
Panasonic has stated quite clearly that in the next couple of years it would like to manufacture all its mobile phones for the Indian market in India itself. It is also looking to improve its revenue in India compared to previous years. At present, the mobile phones of Panasonic are assembled at its unit in Noida. This is done at what it has described as a semi knocked-down level. It is looking to take this to a level it calls completely knocked-down, which implies a much deeper level of manufacturing.
How is government of India helping?
According to Pankaj Rana who works as business head – mobility division of Panasonic India, major companies these days are enthused by the policies being adopted by the national government, as well as the incentives it is providing, and pointed out that programmes such as Make in India have brought about a change in the way that these organizations are thinking. Of late, Panasonic India has increased its manufacturing capacity to 8 lakh units in a month – this is double of what it used to produce before in the same time frame – in order to cope up with the demand for its products in India as well as in other markets around the world.
