The electronics contract manufacturer earlier with the Karnataka government for Rs 3,750 crore to set up a semiconductor assembly and testing facility and a printed circuit board manufacturing plant through the company's step-down subsidiaries.
Semiconductor manufacturing is inevitable for India's growth, with only 0.2% of India's demand being manufactured domestically, Kunhikannan told BQ Prime.
“India is being looked at as an active and innovative player today,” and with outsourced semiconductor assembly and testing facilities, India may grow in tandem with Taiwan, Malaysia, and China, Kunhikannan said.
