Current Affair 4:
India launching new ‘authorization’ system for import of laptops, tablets and personal computers


The Indian government decided to allow restriction-free imports of laptops and tablets, and launched a new system of “authorisation” aimed at monitoring shipments of such hardware without hurting market supply.

The new “import management system” takes effect from Nov. 1 and requires companies to register the quantity and value of imports, but the government will not reject any import requests and will use the data for monitoring.

Its purpose is “to ensure that all this provides us with the kind of data and information we need to make sure that we have a completely trusted digital system”.

India’s electronics and software imports, which include laptops, tablets and personal computers, stood at $33.6 billion in the April to August period, up nearly 8% from last year.

India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) said it “extends its profound appreciation towards the government’s recent decision to maintain restriction-free imports of laptops and tablets.”
