The Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has approved the State government’s proposal to set up a Greenfield Electronics Manufacturing Cluster at Vikruthamala village in Chittoor district.
This will be developed in over 501.40 acres at a cost of Rs.339.80 crore. It is expected to generate nearly one lakh jobs. The State government has received the confirmation letter from the Central government.
The new cluster caters to the needs of electronic products manufacturing, electronic component manufacturing and semi-conductor designing companies. Already, another EMC which is developed by mobile company Celkon Impex Pvt.Ltd., near Renigunta is functioning. Five more proposals relating to the EMC are still pending with the Central government of which two will come up in Anantapur, one each in Visakhapatnam, Kakinada and Chittoor if the Centre clears these proposals.
