Government of India: Mobile devices must be equipped with USB-C by March 2025
The Indian government earlier formed a special study group consisting of industry representatives, educational institutions, and other relevant department heads to study the feasibility of the plan. At the same time, the environmental department also assessed the impact of unified charging ports in electronic equipment on e-waste, and then the Indian government consulted with relevant industry personnel on standards.
Considering the constraints of the global supply chain and the availability of products, the Indian government and related industries finally reached a consensus and decided to follow the European Union’s unified charging port standard timetable, the government set March 2025 as the deadline. The plan will be implemented in phases for efficient implementation and ease of adoption.
