Elon Musk today said there might be a delay in Tesla's delivery and network setup in India due to the local sourcing norms. Answering a question on Twitter, Musk said there is no infrastructure in India to support the 30% local components at the moment.
@TheAvinashSingh Maybe I'm misinformed, but I was told that 30% of parts must be locally sourced and the supply doesn't yet exist in India to support that.

Earlier last year, Tesla had announced that its new model Tesla 3 would be available for the pre-order in India as well. Following that, a lot of people in the country made a booking of the car.
Later, Musk had said this year that the car might be available this summer. However, there is the lack of the supercharging infrastructure as well.
@goel_ishan Hoping for summer this year
