Semiconductor manufacturing to start very soon in India

Alkesh Kumar Sharma, the secretary of electronics and information technology, stated that the country's semiconductor manufacture will begin shortly. He was responding to a question on the Ministry of Electronics and IT's plan of action after state-owned enterprise Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) addressed the issue of electronic chip and printed circuit board (PCB or motherboard) shortages impeding domestic production of electric metres.

"India will be one of the top 6-7 partners with semiconductor production capabilities. It will occur very soon," Sharma stated. He said at a seminar on technology transfer held by C-DAC in Thiruvananthapuram for local manufacturing of smart metres and electric chargers that Meity has taken the lead in technology development, whether in the electronic or automotive sectors, artificial intelligence.

"When it comes to the climate change programme, we have taken the lead. One crucial component is the shift to green technology, and EV plays an important role in this. Demand is rising. We currently require 5,000 chargers in India's top 20 cities. ToT for EV will be extremely beneficial to the country "He stated. Under the National Mission on Power Electronics Technology (NaMPET) programme, the C-DAC, Thiruvananthapuram, has developed a Smart Energy Meter based on Indian standards that is suited for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).

According to Sharma, the development of local smart metres will improve metering efficiency, cut power usage, ensure that individuals receive accurate bills, and benefit power distribution firms. According to an EESL senior official, the transition from traditional smart metres to digital smart metres is in its early stages.

"As of now, we are encountering obstacles such as a lack of hardware components, semiconductors, and PCBs (printed circuit boards), which forces us to rely on different countries. We shall have our own manufacturing thanks to C-development DAC's of indigenous technologies. Somebody from our own nation should be present "said the officer.
