Sahara Computers and Electronics Ltd (SCEL), a joint venture between South Africa’s Sahara Computers Ltd and the Sahara India Pariwar, could soon offer laptops below Rs.25,000.
Laptops with a price tag of less than Rs.25,000 is not a remote possibility any more, as the average cost of production has come down drastically over the years due to growing sales volumes in the Indian market, said SCEL chief operating officer George Van Der Merwe. Merwe said that it is not the cost but the taxes that are compelling us to price the laptops slightly above Rs.25,000. If the government can liberalise the tax structure a bit, sub-25k notebooks are a real possibility.
