India is a huge Electronics market for all kind of things like Consumer ,Networking ,Storage ,Telecom, Defense etc with almost zero local manufacturing . Business needs will force majority of these to be manufactured locally and that means more than USD20 billion worth Semiconductor too . It is not necessary that Indian fabs should be started and run by Indians alone and that is the reason govt is looking for partners . Additionally , as Peter suggested requisite talent is already available with ethnic Indian working globally and it is very much possible to bring them back on something which is very promising .

Pity you and your childhood fantasies - guess your mama never told you that posting Washington's picture does not really make you "elPresidente". So typical of losers - if you cannot win with words, use foul language. And haven't you heard "Size does not matter" unless you are a huge Ron Jeremy fan.

The Indian government is up to no good and wants to hide some evil things, that they'd like to make in silicon, from the Chinese. Indians can hire only Indians - the rest of the world have Chinese eyes in EVERY fab. There is no other sane reason than an insane motive. As far as the postings here go, if you have a short penis, a fab won't fix it. Neither will "marking" your territory by lifting your leg up, especially when you are downwind from your goal.

The Japanese believed it would never hit them?? Hard to imagine. Japan is way too prone to earthquakes than India. Plus, India is a very large country and fabs could be setup in the safest zones.

@babayan But there has been a great diaspora of Indian engineers and experts. Across all the chip companies of the world I would expect there are more than a few of Indian origin. It may only take a handful with experience of working in fabs to bring the skills back to India and start training workers. I would expect that at least some of the skilled engineers that Abu Dhabi is intent on training will come from India. And they may end up working in a wafer fab in Abu Dhabi. So why not believe something similar can be achieved in India.

Since U.S. and Europe companies moving away from fab and manufacturing. It is simply cheaper, more revenue, and less hardworks. This is where Japan, Taiwan, Korea companies bringing their values. U.S. will feel the pain and pay the price later on down the road with their mentality and strategy. There will be many unemployed Americans with nowhere else to go.

It is safer and better to build fabs and expertise than nuclear reactors, which U.S. President George W. Bush promised to transfer the technology and provide funds while he was in India.

Fabs Going Nowhere in India. Like many major projects in India, they wasted so much time, resources,efforts, one delay after another, and These turning point projects in India ended up in the hands of incompetent people with strong connections. The India Semiconductor Association (ISA) is a disgrace to India along with their credibility. Everybody made little money but nothing accomplished. Building fabs and expertise are complex with huge challenges. It takes some time and right investment with a right people who believe and share their vision. ISA loved to hear sugarcoated solutions with promises. As a result, most of them fail from the beginning. Assume that ISA getting to the next level, some money goes into project will disappear. India will never have a solid project at the end. Vendors and partners will get sue. Nobody wants to set up fab in India anymore.

Building a fab is one thing. Running it is a whole new beast. India does not have enough chip engineers and technicians who specialise in process engineering, lithography, yield analysis, package development et al. Not to forget the kind of management expertise required to keep a fab operating at optimum efficiency. India should continue concentrating on becoming a centre of excellence for chip designs.

The chance of new fab in disaster-prone zone is still very high. Earthquake threat from north and tsunami threat from south. It cannot be used as good justification, maybe lower cost can, but there you can't beat China.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
