Smartron has signed a comprehensive Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Chhattisgarh to manufacture mobile phones and collaborate with state in smart health, infrastructure and education.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Raman Singh, Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh and Mahesh Lingareddy, Founder and Chairman, Smartron. This agreement is a collaborative initiative to bring smart technology and product ecosystem to elevate the technological framework of the state.
Smartron is building an innovation led product technology ecosystem through tronX, an AI powered IoT platform. The partnership will help Smartron to bring in their expertise in the area of developing smart devices like smartphones, laptops and other products that offer highly customised, personalised experience to users. This in turn will help create more opportunities for jobs and provide better technological infrastructure.
Commenting on the occasion of a number of MoUs being signed, Raman Singh said, “The Chhattisgarh SKY (Suchna Kranti Yojana) scheme has given a big boost and created huge opportunity in electronic manufacturing in the state. I would like to congratulate all the entrepreneurs and expect these companies to start execution of the projects at the earliest.”
On March 6, 2017, Dr. Raman Singh has announced the Suchna Kranti Yojana focused to provide free smartphones along with a SIM card to all the poor citizens of the state. Around 45 lakh smartphones will be given to BPL (Below Poverty Line) families in the state under ‘Suchna Kranti Yojana’ to provide accessibility of Chhattisgarh e-services in state. The scheme will also benefit students studying in Universities.
Speaking on the association Mahesh Lingareddy said, “Smartron is building India’s first global technology OEM brand with focus on innovation led product ecosystem around tronX, an AI powered IoT platform delivering intelligent experiences through range of smart devices to various verticals. We are glad to be associated with the Government of Chhattisgarh’s vision to be at the forefront of digital India.
