Promises made earlier
PTI reported that earlier also, the government had announced schemes for setting up semiconductor plants in the country. Proposals from a consortium led by Jaiprakash Associates Ltd and HSMC Technologies India were shortlisted entailing a cumulative investment of over Rs 63,000 crore.

Jaiprakash Associates withdrew its proposal, while in April 2018 the Ministry of Electronics and IT cancelled the letter of intent issued to HSMC Technologies for setting up semiconductor plant. HSMC had requested the government to assure market support through policy measures but its proposal was rejected.
