New Delhi: Ringing Bells says that it has received five crore registrations online in just two days. But it only plans on distributing 25 lakh handsets to those who have registered online.
While the world kept asking questions and Indians remained puzzled, Noida-based Ringing Bells, promising a Rs 251 (less than $4) “Make in India” smartphone, on Friday claimed to have received nearly five crore registrations in just two days of opening up for online pre-orders.
In a chat with IANS, company president Ashok Chadha said that since the company will hand over 25 lakh “Freedom 251” phones to the people who have registered online.
The firm has stopped the registration process as it is unable to meet the huge demand.
There were two more days left to pre-order the phone till 8:00PM on February 21.
“The pre-booking numbers we received are sheer humongous. I am happy that so many Indians have responded to our ‘Make in India’ smartphone call.
Now the onus is on us to deliver on the promise and I am hopeful that we will be able to start delivery latest by April 10 and finish well before the June 30 deadline,” Chadha told IANS.
