Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit: During Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2024, Natarajan Chandrasekaran, the chairman of Tata Sons, revealed that Tata Group is nearing an announcement to establish a new semiconductor fabrication facility in Gujarat, this year. The Gujarat investment summit is a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's concerted efforts to attract investments ahead of an upcoming re-election campaign.

While semiconductor manufacturing remains a pivotal component of PM’s economic strategy, initial attempts to extend $10 billion in incentives to incentivise the chipmaking sector have encountered some setbacks. Some proposals have faced delays or cancellations, complicating the government's objectives.
