“The city of Pune has a rich history of research and innovation and over the years it has emerged as the engineering capital of our country coupled with a powerful entrepreneurial eco-system of well-known technology start-ups. Establishing its leadership position in the areas of automotive, engineering, R&D etc., we strongly believe the city can contribute significantly into the future growth of the electronics and semiconductor sector in India,” said Bhushan Gagrani, CEO, Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation.
“We witnessed government’s commitment to transform India as a manufacturing nation and it is time for the industry to rise to the occasion. Taking cues from the automotive sector, we envisioned Pune as the hub for engineering, design, innovation and manufacturing in the ESDM space. We are thrilled with our ongoing association with IESA for the brownfield EMC project and with their strategic inputs, we have inched closer to the implementation of the project. Now, it requires a speedy approval to continue the momentum and transform Pune as the Innovation Hub.” said Anant Sardeshmukh, Director General, Mahratta Chamber of Commerce Industries and Agriculture.
“As a country striving to transform itself into an ESDM hub, Maharashtra can play a pivotal role by strengthening product design and development, primarily focused around the industries sectors that are already thriving in the state.
