It's said that hundreds of employees at Foxconn's two plants in the south had no major work to do because of the delays.
More than 150 Foxconn shipments - containing smartphone and electronic parts - were stuck at the port of Chennai, though some are being cleared slowly now, the first source said. The total number of parts in the shipments was not clear.
“Foxconn was in a very bad state ... lots of workers stayed at the dormitory because there was no work,” said a source.
Officials have told the site that the added inspection measures are temporary and will be eased soon.
“We cannot keep checking 100% of shipments forever ... Shipments of non-Chinese companies being impacted will be cleared on priority,” said one official.
Tensions have risen between China and India following a deadly clash at the Himalayan border last month. Earlier this week India banned around 60 Chinese apps including the popular TikTok app.
