  Chip tactic

The pitch to draw in semiconductor players must go beyond incentives

About the editorial:

In recently held ” Semicon India 2023″ , PM Modi announced several important tax cuts and PLI schemes to attract semiconductor manufacturers but it still needed much more apart from PLI to give the push a reality .

About Semicon India :

Held 2nd time in Gandhinagar PM Modi announced corporate tax cuts , SoPs for all new manufacturing projects . He told that govt incentives offered to tech firms have been scaled up to 50 percent of financial assistance .

A 20 billion dollar semiconductor manufacturing by Vedanta Foxconn announced in 2022 , came to an end as Foxconn pulled out of it .

Global factors in Chip manufacturing unit in India :

Currently China , US is hub of sen conductor manufacturing . But countries trying to derisk from China , companies are looking destination other that China to expand their manufacturing capacity . US and European Union too are trying hard that semiconductor manufacturers do not go away from their countries . SINCE 2021 US has got a commitment of 200 billion dollar of investment , while Intel will be investing  about 80 billion dollars in EU countries .
