On Saturday, Tata Projects announced a partnership with Micron Technology to build an advanced semiconductor assembly and testing factory in Sanand, Gujarat.
According to a business release, the contract granted to Tata Projects cements the company’s expertise in large-scale, long-term infrastructure development in the Indian manufacturing scene.
According to the statement, the project encompasses 93 acres of land and is located in the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation region of Chaarodi, Sanand.
“This enduring project is a significant milestone and the largest investment under the India Semiconductor Mission (ISM),” according to the release, adding that Phase 1 development would comprise a 500,000 square feet cleanroom facility, which is expected to be operational by late 2024.
According to the statement, the project entails designing and building a first-of-its-kind DRAM (dynamic random access memory) and NAND (non-volatile flash memory) assembly and test facility in India.
Tata Projects intends to deploy new construction processes and techniques such as integrated EPC delivery via 4D BIM and hybrid modular rapid construction, according to the company.
According to the announcement, the Sanand facility will be built in compliance with the Green Building Council’s LEED Gold standards and will use innovative water-saving technology.
Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology, said on Saturday that the “Bhoomi Pujan” (groundbreaking ceremony) for the country’s first semiconductor facility had taken place in Gujarat.
The groundbreaking for the country’s first semi-conductor facility represents a watershed point in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambition of a self-sufficient India.
Vaishnaw expressed confidence that the semiconductor facility will be built shortly, and that the first indigenous microchips would be available by December 2024.

“Today was the ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ of the first semiconductor plant.” This is a critical step in carrying out the Prime Minister’s vision (of Atmanirbhar Bharat). “The plant’s construction will be completed soon, and the first indigenous microchips will be produced here by December 2024,” Vaishnaw stated.
“In 2014, the manufacturing cost of mobile phones in India was 17,000 crores,” Vaishnaw remarked, highlighting the country’s electronic industry’s progress under PM Modi’s leadership. This has now surged to ₹3,65,000 crores.The electronics business, which was formerly worth 1,90,000 crores, is now worth 8,30,000 crores.”
“Exports have more than fivefold increased, from 40,000 crores to 2,000 crores,” the Union Minister stated.
All of these developments can be ascribed to semiconductor chips, according to Vaishnaw, who added that the country was on track to become a major semiconductor hub.
