In a bid to expand its iPhone-manufacturing in India, Apple has reportedly asked the government not to increase the import taxes on mobile phone components.
However, the Centre isn't likely to accept the Cupertino tech giant's request, said sources.
The iPhone-maker said the expansion could create 5,000-10,000 jobs in the country.
Apple has been discussing the matter with Indian authorities for months.
Reflecting the massive transformation India underwent this year in terms of Internet speeds, the country was ranked 76th and 109th for fixed-broadband and mobile Internet speeds, respectively, on Ookla's November Speedtest Global Index.
Average fixed-broadband download speed rose to 18.82Mbps in November from 12.12Mbps at the beginning of 2017.
Average mobile Internet download speed increased to 8.80Mbps in November from January's 7.65Mbps.
However, Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Audi and Mercedes Benz have no price hike plans as of now, ET reported.
