RE: freedom 251 genuine or legit?
According to one of the interview given by the ASHOK CHADDA -
Cost of making for one single phone is 2,500 rupees,
1-if it is made in INDIA they get a compensation(13.8%) of 450,
2-selling it online they get again a benfit of 450,
3-producing in bulk reduces cost by 550.
so including all this benifits the reduced cost will be "800 rupees" only.
According to them selling at 251 results in diffference of 550.
This 550 will be recovered by various online advertisement earnings,eCommerce earnings etc.
The Telecom Ministry has issued orders to freedom251 for marketing their product Without the approval of BSI , also asked UP GOVT about the status of the company.
According to PANKAJ MAHINDRO(NATIONAL PRESIDENT INDIAN CELLULAR ASSOCIATION)-
The Freedom251 has not made any deal with any of the making and assembling organisation with in INDIA.So customers should be alert because it is not easy to predict whether the company make its promise true.
