India likely to adopt the USB Type-C as the standard charging port for mobiles

India is on the same path as the European Union as the country may adopt a policy similar to it when it comes to setting up a common standard for smartphones, tablets, and selected consumer electronic gadgets as per the latest report.

Apple is the only premier smartphone maker yet to switch to the USB Type-C port:

The Indian government has reportedly called a meeting exclusively to take a call on this issue. Prominent industry stakeholders will be involved in talks before the authorities come to a conclusion, the meeting will take place on the 17th of August.

As per PTI, the Centre is looking to remove different chargers and the reason for this is so that the total electronic waste in the country comes down. In 2020, India contributed 1,014,961 tonnes of e-waste in the FY 2019-2020 so it is a huge issue in the country.

USB Type-C Port

The European Union has been urging tech brands to adopt a universal charging port standard with the USB Type-C cable, this rule could come into force by 2024. “If companies can serve in Europe and the US, why cannot they do it in India? Portable electronic devices like smartphones and tablets should have a common charger,” an official with knowledge of the matter stated.

As of now Xiaomi, Realme, Samsung, Motorola, OnePlus, and other premier brands have switched to the USB Type-C port quite a bit ago. Apple is the only smartphone brand that makes high-end devices that is yet to adhere to this standard as it has the Lightning Port for its iPhones.
