Noida: Samsung's mobile factory has resumed work since today with around 3,000 workers who were brought to the factory by bus. The government has allowed factories to operate with reduced labor. Samsung's mobile factory started operating in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, with around 3,000 workers. The move came after the government allowed factories to operate with a small workforce.
More than 60% of the country's mobile phone manufacturing units are located in Uttar Pradesh. In addition to Samsung, popular brands like Vivo, Oppo, Realme, and Lava have their manufacturing units in the state.
Samsung began bringing a small number of workers on the buses. As per the report of ANI, around 3,000 workers have been brought to the facility to resume operations. Other companies have also been contemplating starting production at factories located in Uttar Pradesh.

Since logistics for raw materials remains problematic, a PTI report states that these companies will begin working with existing inventories and will try to make arrangements to continue the manufacturing process. Vivo and Oppo also stated that they will resume production of 30% from May 8.
According to the directive issued by the authorities, Oppo would be operating with 30 percent of its capacity, with around 3,000 employees working in a rotation of its total of more than 10,000 workers, as of May 8, 2020.
'As the business returns to normal in due course, production will improve to full capacity,' Oppo said in a statement.
Uttar Pradesh has announced that it will start manufacturing this week, and since it maintains inventory for a couple of weeks, it seems no challenge in achieving production pace.
