There are proposals to reopen the window with further allocation post election. And Tower is defending a lawsuit against their former partners (ISMC) - perhaps, this impacted their fortune.

Again, as of now, these are just speculations.
No, apparently Tower proposal is for a more complex fab and hence government is preparing special set of incentives for the project, that article mentions it.

But more or less, Tower is also confirmed now. Within a few months the government has successfully brought in $30 billion in semiconductor manufacturing investments, brilliant.

Dude Vaishnav is a genius:
Graduation with Gold medal in ECE
M. Tech. from IIT Kanpur
All-India rank of 27 in UPSC.
MBA from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
list gets longer when what he did during and after service is taken into account.

-district magistrate in odisha when that big cyclone hit
-PMO,
-Vajpayee private secretary after BJP lost
-port trust
-set up a few logistics companies
-jobs in siemens and GE
-and then joined politics.

Any guesses to what type FAB plants are being setup after today’s announcement. I mean 40nm or 28nm Fab.
‘Another source is indicating that the FAB to be built by TATA venture is 28nm chip. That is a mid range capability chip most extensively used in consumer electronics, automobiles, computers, military uses and others mid range items. About 60% of worldwide demand for chips falls in this category. India has rightly concentrated on this range.

When Towers (Israel) builds a FAB in India, it probably also in this mid range. The unit will be 100% owned by them.

Giant leap for India Semiconductor Mission: Cabinet approves three more semiconductor units


Posted On: 29 FEB 2024 3:39PM by PIB Delhi

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi approved the establishment of three semiconductor units under ‘Development of Semiconductors and Display Manufacturing Ecosystems in India. All three units will start construction within next 100 days.
The Programme for Development of Semiconductors and Display Manufacturing Ecosystem in India was notified on 21.12.2021 with a total outlay of Rs. 76,000 crore.
In June, 2023, the Union Cabinet had approved the proposal of Micron for setting up a semiconductor unit in Sanand, Gujarat.
Construction of this unit is progressing at a rapid pace and a robust semiconductor ecosystem is emerging near the unit.
The approved three semiconductor units are:
1. Semiconductor Fab with 50,000 wfsm capacity:
Tata Electronics Private Limited (“TEPL”) will set up a semiconductor fab in partnership with Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp (PSMC), Taiwan.
Investment: This fab will be constructed in Dholera, Gujarat. Investment in this fab will be Rs.91,000 crore.
Technology partner: PSMC is renowned for its expertise in logic and memory foundry segments. PSMC has 6 semiconductor foundries in Taiwan.
Capacity: 50,000 wafer starts per month (WSPM)

Segments covered:
  • High performance compute chips with 28 nm technology
  • Power management chips for electric vehicles (EV), telecom, defence, automotive, consumer electronics, display, power electronics, etc. Power management chips are high voltage, high current applications.
2. Semiconductor ATMP unit in Assam:
Tata Semiconductor Assembly and Test Pvt Ltd (“TSAT”) will set up a semiconductor unit in Morigaon, Assam.
Investment: This unit will be set up with an investment of Rs.27,000 crore.
Technology: TSAT semiconductor is developing indigenous advanced semiconductor packaging technologies including flip chip and ISIP (integrated system in package) technologies.
Capacity: 48 million per day
Segments covered: Automotive, electric vehicles, consumer electronics, telecom, mobile phones, etc.

3. Semiconductor ATMP unit for specialized chips:
CG Power, in partnership with Renesas Electronics Corporation, Japan and Stars Microelectronics, Thailand will set up a semiconductor unit in Sanand, Gujarat.
Investment: This unit will be set up with an investment of Rs.7,600 crore.
Technology partner: Renesas is a leading semiconductor company focussed on specialised chips. It operates 12 semiconductor facilities and is an important player in microcontrollers, analog, power, and System on Chip (‘SoC)’ products.
Segments covered: The CG power semiconductor unit will manufacture chips for consumer, industrial, automotive and power applications.
Capacity: 15 million per day
Strategic importance of these units:
  • Within a very short time, India Semiconductor Mission has achieved four big successes. With these units, the semiconductor ecosystem will get established in India.
  • India already has deep capabilities in chip design. With these units, our country will develop capabilities in chip fabrication.
  • Advanced packaging technologies will be indigenously developed in India with today’s announcement.
Employment potential:
  • These units will generate direct employment of 20 thousand advanced technology jobs and about 60 thousand indirect jobs.
  • These units will accelerate employment creation in downstream automotive, electronics manufacturing, telecom manufacturing, industrial manufacturing, and other semiconductor consuming industries.

Will this program sponsor PhD and masters degree research and include job placement activities?

No clue. The Centre is still in a planning stage. We'd know more once it comes into existence but the programs you've mentioned ought to be part of what the centre offers . Once again this is speculation on my part.
