Perfect for the Indian climate with its cooling solution, the new range will not only beat the heat but also provide anti-bacterial & anti-allergen properties through the neem filter. The company aims to bring 25% of its business from non-mobility segment to bring in newer set of consumers into the Micromax fold.
