The ministry did not elaborate on the policy changes, but Reuters has reported that India plans to relax some of its cumbersome import-export rules and environmental laws to help foreign manufacturers to set up repair hubs in the country.

Nvidia shares have skyrocketed this year, up more than 175% since the start of 2023. It's all thanks to the rise of generative AI.

The most widely used index in the world is the S&P 500, which is supposed to be a broad barometer of the US stock market but has increasingly been driven by a small number of tech giants. This year, the S&P 500 is up by about 10 per cent but with much of its returns driven by Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet, Nvidia, Meta and Tesla.

India will start a pilot project this week to establish itself as an electronics repair hub by relaxing cumbersome import-export rules, a move that could draw tech majors such as Flex to expand such operations in the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promoted electronics manufacturing in India and attracted the likes of Apple and Xiaomi, but the country still lacks an industry for repair outsourcing which is estimated to be worth $100 billion globally and currently dominated by China and Malaysia. Following a push by an industry group for IT and electronics manufacturers, MAIT, the Indian government will test changes to lower the time required for necessary approvals for imports and exports to a day from as much as 10 days.
