When asked if a supervision has supposed a iPhone maker’s demands, commerce and attention apportion Nirmala Sitharaman told Rajya Sabha (Council of States) that a method has said “no” to “most” of them.

Apple has put adult an “unprecedented” list of final before a government. “Apple India has sought concessions, including avocation exemptions on production and correct units, components, collateral apparatus including tools and consumables for smartphone production and service/repair for a duration of 15 years,” Sitharaman added.
