Prime minister Narendra Modi is definitely on his way to make our ‘primitive country’ into a ‘digital country’ with his bright new prospects. Actually, in his policies he is trying to lure the foreign investors and at the end profiting the country, as it sounds. In the recent parliamentary session PM Narendra Modi said that he will revive the Nokia unit which was closed down due to some legal dispute.
The Finnish telecom company had the biggest handset manufacturing unit globally – and it was based in Sriperumbudur near Chennai. It is a merry time for the Nokia Oyj as this would implement the lifting of the asset freeze imposed by the tax authorities. Nokia earlier sold this unit to Microsoft but the deal soon came to a halt.
The question is just ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ scheme is enough to make heavy tax defaulter viable again to work in the country. The Income tax department has already implied a fine of 2,000 crores on Nokia Chennai factory and there are many other legal disputes because of which the court has asked Nokia to pay 3,500 crores which is still unpaid. And we think this makes you a criminal if you don’t pay your taxes or fines.
So what is happening that we are going to provide jobs to a criminal and conditions to flourish and nourish under the wings of Indian Government. Department of industrial policy and promotion and Department of electronics and information technology are providing their full support to Nokia India, which is tumbling down at a great pace.
The Indian origin CEO of Nokia Rajeev Suri met PM Narendra Modi in this context and we think he should know that if Nokia is given a second chance then they should really make it a good one. Because make in India is not only the dream of our prime minister, but also the 100 crore people of India.
