History in the Making: India's Newly Authorized Semiconductor and OSAT Facility

By Consultants Review Team Wednesday, 13 March 2024

In the Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR), Tata Electronics Private Limited (TEPL) is setting up a semiconductor production plant valued at Rs 91,000 crore. Additionally, the company is constructing an Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT) facility in Morigaon, Assam, for Rs 27,000 crore.

India's ten-year ambition to become a global center for semiconductors is beginning to come true. Virtual ground was broken on Wednesday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for three plants: Tata Electronics Fab, Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT), and OSAT at CG Power.

Bhupendra Patel, the Gujarat chief minister, Ashwini Vaishnaw, the minister of electronics and IT, and Natarajan Chandrasekaran, the chairman of Tata Sons, were also there. The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sharma, and Chairman of CG Power & Industrial Solutions Ltd., Vellayan Subbiah, virtually joined from Assam. Virtually attending the event was Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State, Ministry of Electronics and IT.

This development occurs just 14 days after two testing and packaging factories as well as one semiconductor fab were approved by the government on February 29, 2024.
This day in history is today. We are not only making history today, but we are also moving forward quickly. According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the groundbreaking of three large semiconductor manufacturing units would help India establish itself as a global semiconductor hub.

Semiconductors are needed for everything that has a switch on or off. India has been working to establish a semiconductor industry since 1962. And India has succeeded in doing this now. Vaishnaw declared that this day will go down in Indian history.

The Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR) will host a Rs 91,000 crore semiconductor production plant, while Morigaon, Assam, will host a Rs 27,000 crore Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT) facility, both being built by Tata Electronics Private Limited (TEPL).

As the foundation stones for our two plants—located 2500 kilometers apart in the east and west—are being set today, India and the Tata Group are indeed celebrating a very significant day. According to N Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons, "these semiconductor manufacturing hubs will have a very impact on the ecosystem from across the globe and will mobilize India as their preferred semiconductor destination."
