NEW DELHI -- Three contract manufacturers for Apple iPhones and South Korea s Samsung have applied for large-scale electronics manufacturing rights in India under a US$6.5 billion incentive scheme announced by the government, a minister said Saturday.

The scheme will extend cash incentives of 4-6% for five years on incremental sales of goods manufactured in India with 2019-2020 as the base year, Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters

The international cellphone manufacturing companies that have applied under the scheme are Samsung, Rising Star and three Apple contract manufacturers -- Foxconn Hon Hai, Wistron and Pegatron.
