Apple's request to import and sell refurbished iPhones in India has been rejected, according to Bloomberg, citing an unnamed government official.

This is the second time that Apple's proposal has been rejected. The company sought permission to sell refurbished phones in 2015, but was rejected by the environment ministry, reported Bloomberg.
