2. Semiconductor ATMP unit in Assam by Tata Semiconductor Assembly and Test Pvt Ltd in Morigaon, Assam.

3. Semiconductor ATMP unit for specialized chips by CG Power, in partnership with Renesas Electronics, Japan and Stars Microelectronics, Thailand in Sanand, Gujarat.


Calling it a historic day, He said "Semiconductor facilities in Dholera and Sanand in Gujarat, Semiconductor facilities in Morigaon in Assam, these will help in making India a big global hub of semiconductor manufacturing. During the first, second and third industrial revolutions, India was left behind due to many reasons. But now India is moving forward with confidence with the intention of leading Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution. We don't want to lose even a moment. And today's program is also an example of how fast we are working in this direction. We are moving on the path of not only technology adoption but also technology advancement."

Here are some more of his quotes:

“India is set to become a prominent semiconductor manufacturing hub”
