  2. Hi,

    Onida videocon, imports its LED and AC’s from China. . . MICROMAX , INTEX etc imports all their products from china. Even though these are indian companies its products are sourced from China . . .

    • From our experience, when it is made in India, most of the time, it is assembled in India. There are 4 types of companies.
      1. Not manufactured in India, not owned by Indians, not marketed by Indians, not assembled in India, but only sold in India
      2. Not manufactured in India, not owned by Indians, marketed and assembled in India
      3. Not manufactured in India, owned by Indians
      4. Manufactured and owned by Indians
      5. Not owned by Indian, but Manufactured/assembled in India

      The fourth category is the ideal situation for a country, and only a very few companies are working towards it. To reach it is not very easy given the situation, but we are slowly getting there. Let us at least look at companies in category 3, try to support, and change them.
