Micromax CEO Vineet Taneja on after-sales service, Xiaomi and unshackling the ecosystem

India's largest homegrown smartphone brand, Micromax, is currently racing neck and neck with Samsung to become the nation's numero uno smartphone maker. The company is reportedly in talks with China's Alibaba, which could invest as much as $1.2 billion, valuing the smartphone maker at $6 billion. Even as it faces immense competition from new Chinese players like Xiaomi and Lenovo among others, Vineet Taneja, who joined Micromax as CEO last year from Samsung, has his priorities set — to improve Micromax from the inside and delight its users with new products and services.

The official stance is that these companies don't have licenses to operate in the state as they are not registered as a radio taxi service. But the government seems to be acting on the behest of existing taxi services that have reached a state of monopoly, have little or no accountability when it comes to customer service. These have been threatened by the likes of Uber and Ola Cabs that don't own any cars but aggregate existing taxis that were already plying on city roads. More →
