  • Kolkata: Electronics behemoth Samsung has lined up fresh investment of around Rs 2,500 crore to turn its India operations into a hub for components business, two senior industry executives said.
  • The Korean company has set up two new component manufacturing entities in India - Samsung Display Co and Samsung SDI India - for production of mobile phone display and batteries, respectively.
  • Separately, Samsung venture capital arm - Samsung Venture Investment Corp - has set up operations in India to fund startups in electronics hardware or software businesses.
