atlast we would compete China on Semicon. This is very good initiative but Government have to push the decision very fast and move on.

In fact, India had one good fab, named SCL - Semiconductor Complex Limited. Government invested $2B+ in that complex and was doing very well. They also got some very good projects from Indian defence and space program (hi-rel GaAs FET and in microwave remote sensing). They were quite successful at it and in mood of expanding it. However, SCL got into fire and whole facility became defunct. As generally reported, they indicated sabotage from .... Scientific community was quite dissapointed. After they have some new research fabs, but they need to have more to avoid further sudden death of critical programs.

At least one Fab is needed for India to keep it's Defence projects rolling and R&D of several universities gain real momentum and do some critical work. But that apart I see no merit in setting up a Fab to compete with other big commercial Fabs because simply you can't beat the chinese on cost.

India needs fab house. It need not be 28 nm / 40 nm and 400 mm. But the need of hour is fab house for some critical and confidential projects in defense and space industry. They should be able to do this.

Good to see that there is a committee and they are attracting investors. Wish there will be at least one fab in the next 5 years.
