Semiconductor Industry: With the rapidly changing technology, the importance of chip ie Semiconductor has increased considerably. This is the reason why a lot of efforts are being made to make the country self-sufficient (Aatmanirbhar Bharat) in the case of semiconductors. However, a major obstacle may come in this way and may have to depend on other countries for some time. A government official has given information about this.
thousands of people needed
According to a news agency PTI, Prashant Kumar, scientist at the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, said this while citing an internal report in a panel discussion on the occasion of Electronics Sector Skill Council Foundation Day. He said that India currently does not have skilled people to handle chip manufacturing plants, whereas by the year 2027, the industry will need 10,000 to 13,000 such skilled people.
people will come from outside
He said that India has sufficient number of semiconductor design engineers, but initially people from other countries will have to be called to handle the semiconductor plant. Later, gradually resources will be developed in the country itself. Quoting the report, he said that there is a shortage in the country of skilled people required for roles other than strategic tasks in semiconductor manufacturing.
Government is doing this work
Kumar told that the government is aiming to create more than 85 thousand skilled workers by the year 2027 under the Chips-to-Startup program. Apart from this, the government is providing expensive and state-of-the-art electronics design automation to 120 organizations. These organizations include colleges, startups and government institutions. With this step of the government, the students are getting a direct experience of these state-of-the-art machines.
this olympiad started
Electronics Sector Skills Council of India started Electronics Olympiad during the event. The Olympiad was started in association with Government CSC e-Governance Services. In this Olympiad, students from schools, colleges and higher education institutions will compete among themselves for electronics projects.
