Datawind's decision to foray in the Indian mobile market by launching low-cost 3G smartphones along with complimentary one year free internet comes as a take on other tech giants who are wooing smart devices users by offering an entire range of phones packed with several features and apparently at a lower cost.  

The company has reached halfway and is on the verge of finalising the setting up of plant in Delhi-NCR and the company will source the components of the phone locally.

The company will set-up a fully-functional manufacturing unit within 90 days of getting all the approvals. The company wants to bring down the cost of 3G phones on par with the cost of the feature phones.

The company aims to expanding its user base in the Indian mobile market by increasing the number of retail outlets and service centres in the country to 3,600 from current 3000 by March 2016.

According to a report,  India mobile handsets market grew 4 percent to 257 million in 2014, of which smartphones accounted for 77 million. And also that India's mobile market offers huge flexibility in terms of price, features and range. Digital India initiative started by the Indian government will get a boost as smartphone cost will no more play as a drawback.
