The state administration of India’s southern Karnataka state announced on Sunday that the international semiconductor consortium ISMC will invest $3 billion in the state to build a chip-making plant.

ISMC is a joint venture between Next Orbit Ventures in Abu Dhabi and Tower Semiconductor in Israel. Intel Corp, the world’s largest chipmaker, has declared its intention to buy Tower.

According to a tweet from the state’s investment promotion office, India’s first semiconductor fabrication unit is estimated to create more than 1,500 direct jobs and 10,000 indirect ones.     


The government’s next big bet on electronics manufacturing is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s $10 billion incentive scheme to encourage corporations to build up semiconductor and display operations in India.

It’s not just ISMC that is interested in India

On Saturday, Vedanta told Reuters it was in “advanced talks” with Gujarat and Maharashtra in western India, as well as Telangana in the south, to select a location by mid-May. It intends to invest $20 billion in its semiconductor and display initiatives.

On Friday, Modi and his IT ministers unveiled proposals for investment incentives in the sector, stating that they want India to become a major player in a global chip market controlled by Taiwanese and a few other countries.
