The government is keen to create and develop technical know-how in India by bringing complete knowledge of hardware designing skills in India, it said, adding that it is being built to improve hardware design as well as to reduce cost of design.

“Our aim is to eventually seek an opportunity to create a chip design and chip manufacturing hub in India. When implemented, it would drive localisation and transform the current manufacturing to absolute knowledge-based manufacturing,” it said.
