Siemens Nixdorf (SNI) has postponed its plans to set up a PC assembly unit in India.
The plant has been on the cards since the company formally launched operations in India in 1996 but a final decision whether to go ahead is not expected for another six months.
According to Patrice Baranowska, managing director at SNI, the company revised its plans for the centre after the last budget, which brought down duties. "Currently our experts are in Malaysia evaluating the environment there to set up a unit which will complement our facility in Singapore. We will commence such evaluations here too immediately after the Malaysian endeavour is over."
If the Indian plant goes ahead, it is likely to be either in Calcutta or Pondicherry. Initially, the company will source components from German suppliers but gradually hopes to source at least 50 per cent locally.
