Business News: When Jamsetji Tata, born in Navsari, Gujarat, laid the foundation of Tata Group, who knew that when India would stand as a nation, Tata's stones would also be laid in its foundation. There are many milestones in the history of India which were given to this country for the first time by the Tata Group. The amazing thing is that with the changing needs of the times, Tata Group understood the needs of the country and its tradition of giving something to the country for the first time continues even today.

If we take a look at the history of the country or the Tata Group, then this country has got the first luxury hotel like 'Taj', the first steel plant like Tata Steel, the first electricity company like Tata Power, the first airlines of the country like Air India and the first airlines like Tata Indica. Tata Group has given the country's first completely indigenous car. When the wheel of time turned, Tata Group also gave the country the first 5-star safety rating and the first indigenous electric car Tata Nexon. Now Tata Group is also going to set up the first semiconductor plant in the country.

Tata Group is making the first indigenous chip

Tata Group is going to set up the first semiconductor plant in the country in Dholera, Gujarat. This plant is going to be set up by Tata Group and Taiwan's Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation. Recently the Cabinet has approved this proposal of Tata Group and an investment of Rs 91,000 crore is to be made on it. Tata Group will be the first company in the country to manufacture indigenous semiconductors. In a way, this is like fulfilling Tata's tradition of giving something new to the country with the changing times.

India has been trying to become self-reliant in semiconductors for a long time. On one hand, this will benefit India in becoming an alternative to China. At the same time, manufacturing of electronics in the country will become cheaper, which India currently imports on a large scale. India will be able to become a part of the supply chain in the global market.

In India, a government company 'Semiconductor Laboratory-Mohali' is already into semiconductor making, but it does not work on a large scale. In such a situation, Tata Group's entry into this sector will prove to be a milestone in the history of the company as well as India.

Desi chip will be available by 2026

Frank Huang, Chairman of PSMC, a Taiwanese company which is going to set up a semiconductor plant in partnership with Tata Group, recently gave information about the start of work on the Dholera plant till the release of the product. He says that the Dholera plant will start producing semiconductor chips before the end of 2026, which will probably be the first indigenous semiconductor chip made in the country.
