Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

How Apple may have created around 20,000 jobs in India – Times of India


For a while now Apple has been making a big push in India in terms of manufacturing — or rather assembling — its products in India. Quite a few iPhone models are now assembled in India, which certainly seems to have led to job creation. According to a report by Digitimes, Apple’s supply chain partners have created around 20,000 jobs in India.
Apple has several manufacturing partners in the country. Some of the big ones include Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron. The three supply chain partners of India had committed to creating job opportunities when they applied to enter the Indian government’s Production Linked Incentive (PLI) program, as per the report by Digitimes.
It has been reported that with Foxconn and Wistron hired 7,500 people each since August 2020. Other supply chain partners also have hired about 5,000 people. The report says that Apple supplies like Sunwoda Electronic, Foxlink, and Salcomp have hired around 5,000 people. These three companies, as per the report, haven’t received PLI qualification from the government.
Apple first started assembling iPhones in India in 2017 with the iPhone SE through its manufacturing partner Wistron in Bangalore. In 2018, Wistron started assembling the iPhone 6s in Bangalore as well. A year later, it was the turn of the iPhone 7 to get manufactured in Bangalore.
In 2019, another Apple manufacturing partner — Foxconn — came aboard and the iPhone XR also joined the list of iPhones assembled in India. It was in 2019 when Apple stopped assembling the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s. In 2020, the iPhone 11 and the ‘new’ iPhone SE were being assembled by Foxconn and Wistron in Chennai and Bangalore respectively.
