M Kalam, writing for the Tech Observer:

After launch of its India manufacturing operations in October last year, global hardware networking giant Cisco has finally delivered the first made in India router under ‘Make in India’ initiative. As gesture the Cisco handed over the first Made in India Router valued under $1500 to the Union electronics & IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Good to see B2B businesses, especially one with Cisco’s might, begin manufacturing in India. This will result in a quieter but substantial change for locally manufactured products.
