The minister said that beside Rs 76,000 crore semicon programme, the government has also approved modernisation of SemiConductor Laboratory, Mohali as a brownfield Fab.

In reply to a separate question, Chandrasekhar shared that the import of electronic goods increased to Rs 87,169 crore in 2019-20 from Rs 65,779 crore in 2018-19 but reduced to Rs 82,645 crore in 2020-21.

“The export of electronic goods has increased by 25 per cent from 2018-19 to 2019-20 and decreased slightly by 5 per cent from 2019-20 to 2020-21.
