Huawei is cutting its India revenue target by 50 percent for 2020 and laying off staff in the country.
The report said that Huawei is laying off “60-70 percent of its staff in India, excluding those in research and development and the Global Service Centre.”
The Quint reached out to Huawei for clarity on this and the company has denied any such development.
India has joined US and UK in flagging some security concern in Huawei’s telecommunications infrastructure.
The Delhi government has already banned state-run carriers from sourcing Huawei equipment in the future and has also advised telecom operators in the country to replace Chinese equipment in the course of time.
UK has also put a blanket ban on Huawei’s 5G telecom hardware from being used in the country’s telecom networks and has told telecom operators to start removing Huawei and ZTE components from the existing communications infrastructure.
