"Apple is selling iPhone SE in India at select stores. These phones were assembled in India on trial basis in limited quantities," an industry source told PTI.
Apple did not comment on the development.
The technology major a couple of days back had said that it was "beginning initial production of a small number of iPhone SE in Bengaluru".
"The high-end India-made iPhones (iPhone SE) have already hit the Indian market. These have been on sale from May 2 onwards," another source said.
The picture showed the price of Rs 27,200 inclusive of all taxes on the box.
The units are assembled by Apple's Taiwanese manufacturing partner Wistron Corp.
He had also expressed hope that it would bring in much needed taxes to the state as well.
Apple wants to bring its component manufacturers to India to make parts and export finished phones and is seeking tax concessions on import of key components. However, the central government has rejected most of the demands of the US company.
Kharge also had said if the Centre was keen on taking on China, it should not give special treatment to Apple alone, but to other players like Samsung and Lenovo also if they are desirous of opening manufacturing units in India.
Kharge had said the government should also give companies, including Apple, certain timelines, subsidies and incentives to create a level-playing field.
