The company has also secured ₹5,799 crore in loans, indicating its commitment to expand and strengthen its operations.

Tata Electronics is reportedly positioning itself to compete with industry giants like Foxconn and Dixon, and it is reportedly in the final stages of acquiring Wistron‘s iPhone manufacturing plant in Karnataka.
