NEW DELHI, India: After India, citing security concerns, blocked access to 54 apps, Beijing said it is “seriously concerned” after India targeted Chinese companies and interests.
Many of the banned apps by New Delhi are Chinese, belonging to tech companies such as Tencent, Alibaba, and NetEase.
Indian authorities have taken a series of repressive measures against Chinese companies and related products in India, which has seriously damaged the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies.
Chinese firm Huawei said India’s tax authorities “visited” its office in India and interviewed some Huawei staff.
Huawei is confident their operations in India are firmly compliant with all laws and regulations, the telecom’s equipment maker said, adding that it will cooperate with the Indian government.
While Huawei did not provide details, tax authorities conducted searches at the tech giant’s offices in New Delhi, Gurugram and Bangalore this week.
Officials from the income tax department looked at Huawei’s financial documents, account books and company records, Indian businesses and overseas transactions.
Some records were also seized, but the income tax department did not respond to a request for comment.
