After the recent Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) action against duty evasion by Chinese mobile phone manufacturers, the Government of India is reportedly planning to restrict them from selling low-end smartphones (cheaper than Rs 12,000; $150). The proposed ban is presumably to kickstart India’s faltering domestic market comprising Micromax, Lava, Karbonn, among others. This was revealed by a Bloomberg report released on Monday.
