India rejects Apple’s request to sell used iPhones

At a press conference in New Delhi on Monday, India’s commerce and industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the government rejected Apple’s request to sell used iPhones in the country. Apple wanted to sell their refurbished devices in the country to make them more affordable to local consumers.

India applies high import duties on used goods to encourage local manufacturing, while the finance ministry said that it doesn’t want foreign companies ‘dumping’ used products in India.

Apple is also wanting to be temporarily exempt from the rule that says companies must source 30% of its materials locally in order to open branded retail stores in the country. Apple is still able to sell its products but it has to do so through third-party resellers currently.
