Delay in imports from China could impact production in April, said Atul Lall, managing director of Dixon Technologies India, on Tuesday, adding that the inventory available is for 15-20 days for mobile and televisions.
With rising cases of COVID-19 in China and several cities seeing fresh lockdowns, there are reports that the supply of parts from China is delayed by 10-15 days and finished goods imports are also likely to take a hit.
In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Lall said, “We import products from China across all our verticals whether its television, mobile phones, LED lightings and washing machines.”
According to him, there is a delay for a week in imports from Shenzhen. “Our shipments have been delayed by a week or so which will have an impact sometime in the latter half of April,” Lall said.
