Apple is reportedly building India’s largest iPhone manufacturing plant in Hosur near Bangalore. Where 60,000 people work together in one factory. And her first 6,000 of the total workforce are reserved for tribal women living in the Ranch and surrounding areas of Hazaribagh. The training of tribal sisters to manufacture iPhones has already begun, according to Telecom and his IT minister her Ashwini Vaishnav.

Incidentally, the Cupertino-based tech company originally outsourced iPhone case manufacturing to Tata Electronics, which has a factory in Hosur. Also, Apple is partnering with his Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron to develop iPhone models in India.

Two government officials claimed last week that Foxconn, one of Apple’s major suppliers, plans to quadruple the number of employees at its iPhone factories in India within two years.

As such, Taiwan-based Foxconn now plans to employ another 53,000 over the next two years, increasing its workforce in South India to 70,000 he said.
