    The booking for the 31.5-inch HD LED TV will begin from July 26. The delivery of LED TVs will start from August 15.

    "I am planning to go to Shamli on July 14 to hand over 200 'Freedom 251' units to those who booked the device from these areas purely because of the emotional connection as I hail from Shamli," he told IANS.

    According to Goel, the company has received nearly 48,000 fresh booking orders for the newly-launched four feature phones, two smartphones and three power banks last week.

    "These customers will also receive their units on cash of delivery (COD) mode. I expect the booking numbers to rise manifold in the days to come," he added.
