Because Samsung , LG and other LCD/ LED Tv manufacturer getting these from China/Taiwan/Korea/Japan and others countries. Waiting for comments
AFAIK there are no LCD display panel manufacturing units in the country..

The Govt was supposed to announce a Semiconductor policy but that has been delayed.. So everyone is waiting for that. GoI was initially planning to provide viability gap funding to kickstart the industry.

There are a few PV cell manufacturing/assembling centers in fabcity at the moment

Finally some concrete news. But this is not about Fab City but something that is directly related to it.


Yash Birla Group proposes Rs 12,750 cr investments in A.P.

Source: The Hindu Business Line

Quote:
A whopping Rs 12,750 crore investment into three large projects around Hyderabad has been proposed by the Yash Birla Group.
An international sports city, an ayurvedic village and a Poly Silicon Manufacturing plant will consume this huge investment. Mr Yash Birla, Group Chairman, signed three expressions of interest with the Andhra Pradesh Government here today.

The Yash Birla Group has sought 1,250 acres of land, mostly around Hyderabad, for setting up these projects. “The Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, responded favourably to our proposals during the meeting”, said Mr P.V.R. Murthy, Group Finance Director.

The biggest among the three proposals is the poly silicon plant that is expected to see Rs 10,000 crore funding. Yash Birla Group has lease on Silica mines near Kurnool. “We plan to set up the plant to make materials for cells and photovoltaic modules. It will need 600 acres and located about 100 km from the mines”, Mr Murthy told Business Line.

Sports city
The Group has sought 450 acres of land for the international sports city. It will require Rs 2,000 crore investment. Sports infrastructure, wellness centres, training, education centres will be part of it.

The third initiative is an Ayurvedic village. It will entail an investment of Rs 750 crore. Manufacturing ayurvedic products, growing medicinal plants and setting up a hospital will call for about 200 acres. The Birla Research and Life Sciences in Mumbai does work on ayurveda, he added.

Funding pattern
All the projects will be on a debt-equity structure. Funds will be raised from banks, private equity etc., Mr Murthy added. At present, the Yash Birla Group has a minimal presence in the State with few schools and a silica mine.

Surana Ventures commissions module unit near Hyderabad


http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle2837005.ece

Surana Ventures Ltd has announced the completion of its module manufacturing unit in the Fab City, 40 km from here, close to the new international airport and also the commissioning of a 5 MW solar photovoltaic unit in Gujarat.

The Hyderabad-based company, part of the Surana Group, has completed the solar photovoltaic power project at Patan district in Gujarat and is seeking nod for setting up another 5 MW solar PV plant at the same location.

The company was allotted the 5 MW plant under the State solar power policy in 2009 by the Gujarat Energy Development Agency. The company later entered into a power purchase agreement with the Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam.

Located in Gujarat Solar Park, the project has been completed with an outlay of Rs 56 crore. AEG of Germany was associated with the project. It has a power tariff of Rs 15/unit. During full year of operation, it would generate about 80 lakh units. This works out to about Rs 12 crore per annum, Mr Narender Surana, Managing Director of Surana Ventures, told Business Line.

Referring to the module unit, he said it has a capacity to manufacture 10 MW per annum. “After meeting internal requirement, we will sell the balance to others in the domestic market. If we get nod for another 5 MW in Gujarat, we would be able to implement the project within three to four months,” he said.

Five years gone, Fab City still waits for firms to become operational

Source: http://www.mydigitalfc.com/news/five...perational-174

Quote:
Nearly five years after it was announced, Fab City, which had placed Hyderabad on the semi conductor and chip manufacturing global map, has just two companies wobbling to make solar modules and allied products.

“Only two companies are operational in the industrial park,” confirmed an official of the APIIC, the nodal agency that gave the land and other infrastructure for Fab City. The Andhra Pradesh go*vernment had earmarked about 1,000 acre for the purpose. In the beginning, more than 25 companies had expressed their interest to be part of park, attracting $ 9.5 billion investments in phases.

The government, as matter of policy, has been sending notices to them asking them to start work on the project or be relieved of the land allotted.

In the same count, the government had earlier cancelled allotment of land to 19 companies, including Moser Baer (100 acre) and MIC Electronics (15 acre), among others after they failed to execute the projects. SemIndia, billed to be the anchor unit, projected an investment of $3 billion (about Rs 15,000 crore), struggled to achieve even financial closure.

Dinesh Kumar, managing director of XL Energy, one of the companies that has been allotted land, said: “It is not just in India but across the world that the solar industry is not doing well for the past few years. Solar-based industries are not in a position for any capital investments.” His company invested about Rs 340 crore in importing equipment for modules and needs another Rs 50 crore for the 120-mw capacity plant to be operational. “We are hopeful of doing that this calendar year,” he said adding that the company has faced difficulty after several export orders were cancelled.

Out of the Rs 340 crore spent, about Rs 180 crore is the loan component and the company has already gone for a CDR, Kumar said.

“The investment proposals were based on the then prevailing prices of solar components. However, the prices dived more than 65 per cent making the estimates go haywire. The industry was expecting to grow 60 per cent but saw only 10 per cent growth,” said Narender Surana, managing director of Surana Ventures, one of the two companies that are operational at Fab City. Another company, Solar SemiConductor, has begun production but remained cautious in view of the market conditions.

Key markets in Europe, particularly Germany, France and Italy, have cancelled orders due to fragile financial condition over the past few years, said Surana.

Titan Energy to tap oversees funds for expansion

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle2872427.ece


Titan Energy Systems Ltd is planning to raise about Rs 300 crore to fuel its expansion plans.

This could be through international lending agencies like the EXIM Bank and a leading Taiwanese financial services provider. They offer loans at cheaper rates and for longer terms ranging between 10 years in the case of former and five years in the case of latter, said Mr Rao Y.S. Chodagam, Managing Director of Titan Energy. “We may increase the equity and dilute stake to raise funds,” he said.

Speaking to Business Line today, Mr Chodagam said that more than 120 MW of solar photo-voltaic power generation projects are being handled by the company in the country. Yet, there are some concerns when it comes to local supplies.

The company, which has a capacity to manufacture solar photovoltaic modules of 100 mw per annum in Andhra Pradesh, is planning to take up further expansion of the plant to manufacture 50 MW more at Fab City near the Hyderabad International airport.

The AndhraPradesh government has proposed a 400-acre electronics hardware cluster in the Maheshwaram area, near the Fab City in Hyderabad.

“The proposal to set up an electronics cluster in Hyderabad was given by the electronics hardware manufacturers of the state. Now, the proposal has been approved by the state IT&C department, and it has been sent for the approval of Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation(APIIC),” Sanjay Jaju, secretary, IT&C department, AP government, told Business Standard.

Hyderabad houses around 500 electronics hardware manufacturing units, which are scattered throughout the city. This cluster will bring all the units together, and provide common logistics and facilities, he said.
The cluster has been proposed to come up in around 400 acre in Fab City. Once the cluster will come into place, more than 90 per cent of the units are expected to shift their base to the cluster, he said.

The cluster is expected to boost the business of the electronic system design and manufacturing (ESDM) units in Hyderabad.

HYDERABAD: As the much-hyped semiconductor hub Fab City failed to attract many companies and those allotted land there failed to start operations, the revenue department is planning to cancel land allotment to firms which are yet to set up shop and reclaim the land.

The revenue department has recently cancelled land allotment to Lepakshi Knowledge City, Brahmini Info, Brahmini Steels and other companies in various parts of the state for violation of agreement and not executing the projects.

Now, the revenue department is likely to take a decision on resuming land from companies which did not start their operations at Fab City. Of the 1,050-acre project, only 64 acres are being utilized by the companies, sources said. Revenue minister N Raghuveera Reddy is likely to hold a meeting with revenue department officials and the Rangareddy district collector on the semiconductor project on Thursday.

The Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for semiconductor companies was originally proposed in 1,050 acres in Raviryal village of Maheshwaram mandal in Rangareddy district. The SEZ, being promoted by the AP Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC), was set up in 2008. The Rangareddy district administration alienated about 108 acres government land to APIIC for the prestigious project in December, 2008. Some land was taken over from assignees, while some land was acquired from private land owners. Initially, the SEZ was meant for only semiconductor companies. Since there was no response from many companies, the SEZ was opened for solar photovoltaic firms. Even after relaxing norms, response from firms was not encouraging.

Official sources said APIIC has so far allotted 351 acres land to 15 companies. Of them, only three firms _Solar Seminconductors Pvt Ltd, Surana Ventures Ltd and Empire Photovoltaic Systems Pvt Ltd_started implementing their projects in 64 acres.

"As there is an abnormal delay in taking up their projects, notices have been served on KSK Surya Photovoltaic Ventures Pvt Ltd, Embedded IT Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd, Radiant Solar Pvt Ltd and XL Energy Ltd (formerly XL Telecom and Energy Ltd), which have been allotted 115 acres," APIIC chief engineer R Chenchiah told TOI.

Interestingly, the allotment was cancelled to five other companies covering 62 acres, but land was not resumed from these companies. However, five acre land allotted to Titan Energy was resumed for not implementing the project. In April 2011, the state government had issued an order cancelling the agreement with Moser Baer Infrastructure Developers Ltd for non-payment of the lease amount. The company was given 100 acres land at Fab City for setting up crystalline-based solar cells and thin-film solar cells.

Meanwhile, the APIIC might use the resumed land for some other purpose irrespective of whether the land belongs to the government or assignees or private owners.

'Dream' project:

The SEZ for semiconductor firms, Fab City, was set up in 1,050 acres at Raviryal village of Maheshwaram mandal in RR district in 2008.

Though APIIC had allotted 351 acres of land to 15 companies, only three firms _Solar Seminconductors Pvt Ltd, Surana Ventures Ltd and Empire Photovoltaic Systems Pvt Ltd_started their projects so far.

Notices were issued to a few companies, including KSK Surya Photovoltaic Ventures Pvt Ltd, Embedded IT Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd, Radiant Solar Pvt Ltd and XL Energy Ltd (formerly XL Telecom and Energy Ltd) for abnormal delay in grounding their projects.

On Thursday, revenue minister N Raghuveera Reddy will hold a meeting with revenue officials and RR dist collector to discuss the Fab City issue.

The state govt had earlier cancelled agreements with Lepakshi Knowledge City, Brahmini Info, Brahmini Steels and other companies for violation of agreement and not implementing projects.

HYDERABAD, JULY 15:
The Andhra Pradesh Government will soon begin work on two electronic hardware clusters in Hyderabad that entail an investment of Rs 3,540 crore. Of this, the State and Central Governments would spend Rs 940 crore on developing infrastructure, with the private players investing the remaining on setting up manufacturing units.

The Centre has agreed to contribute about 50 per cent of the infrastructure development cost. It recently gave in-principle nod to build the clusters as part of the national policy to develop electronic hardware manufacturing in the country.

ECITY

The existing Fab City would be rechristened eCity to house the hardware firms in around 600 acres. This includes 40 per cent of special economic zone area. The Centre would give Rs 235 crore as a grant in the total project cost of Rs 580 crore.


The Electronics Industries Association of Andhra Pradesh has committed to invest Rs 1,800 crore more on establishing manufacturing units. It could generate 35,000 jobs.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, AP Information Technology Minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah said the electronic hardware industry registered a business of Rs 6,500 crore in the State last year as against Rs 35,000 crore nationally.

“The electronics import bill would soon surpass the oil import bill, putting a heavy burden on the national exchequer. The hardware cluster policy would go a long way in reducing the burden,” he said.
