Apple’s India plans may falter as Wistron’s unit may not open in January Wistron's manufacturing unit at Narasapura near Bengaluru

The controversy-ridden Apple contract manufacturer Wistron, whose plant in Narasapur near Bengaluru was closed following violence unleashed by its workers on the night of December 12 over non-payment of salaries, is still unable to resolve the impasse.

According to a report in the Economic Times, while investigations are still pending against the agitating workers, Wistron has been unable to hire fresh staff. In the event, the unit which was expected to re-open in January is now faced with a longer closure.
