Are Jio phones made in India?

Contrary to what Jio announced during the launch, Jio phones are NOT made in India. They are imported from Taiwan.

After landing at these locations, the Jio phones will be sent to Jio Centres and Reliance Digital stores from where they will be directly sent to the dealers. The firm will also use the services other logistic companies to make deliveries of Jio Phone. (source)
