Apple’s Largest Manufacturing Unit To Employ 60,000 People
The minister confirmed this news while speaking at the Janjatiya Gaurav Divas ceremony. He also announced around six thousand tribal women living close to Ranchi and Hazaribagh have received training to assemble iPhones.
As per Vaishnaw, “Apple’s iPhone is now getting made in India and it’s the biggest plant in India is being set up at Hosur near Bengaluru. 60,000 people work in a single factory. The first 6,000 employees of these 60,000 employees are our tribal sisters from places nearby Ranchi and Hazaribagh. Tribal sisters have been trained to make Apple iPhone.”
Tata Electronics, which has a facility in Hosur, has been contracted by Apple to manufacture iPhone enclosures.
Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron, three global leaders in electronics manufacturing, produce iPhones for the corporation in India.
Tata Group Looking To Increase Employment As Well
Tata Group intends to increase employment by hiring tens of thousands of people at its electronics factory in southern India that produces iPhone components in order to compete with Apple Inc. for more business.
The facility, which is situated in the industrial town of Hosur in the Tamil Nadu state, would hire up to 45,000 women workers as part of this project over the next 18 to 24 months.
The move, according to the sources, will aid in the establishment of new production lines.
Basically, the cases that keep the iPhone together are made at this factory.
At the moment, it employs approximately 10,000 people, mostly women. The Indian behemoth that produces everything from salt to software seems to be attempting to profit from Apple’s supply chain diversification outside of China.
When it comes to the Hosur factory, it occupies more than 500 acres as of September. According to the sources, the company has employed roughly 5,000 women, including those from indigenous tribal tribes.
The Hosur factory’s female employees receive a gross monthly wage of little over 16,000 rupees ($194). According to the sources, this is around 40% more than the industry average for Indian workers who use their hands or tools for assembly.
In addition, they receive free lodging and meals on-campus. Tata also intends to offer education and training in addition to this.
