India is making Hyderabad, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, a world-class hub for advanced semiconductor and electronics manufacturing. This dedicated area has become known as Fab City.
The development of Fab City is being promoted by the government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) which has tasked the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) to oversee progress and establish public-private partnerships with developers.
It is anticipated that Fab City will create 5,000 jobs by 2009 and up to 1.4 million jobs by 2016 in over 200 ancillary industries
The government of Andhra Pradesh has allocated 1050 acres of land on the outskirts of Hyderabad, at Thukkuguda (Maheshwaram mandal, Ranga Reddy district), for the development of Fab City.
Fab City is located near the new Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, operational since 23 March 2008, and is also strategically positioned close to the 162km eight-lane outer-ring road and a metro-rail transport system also being built.
We have put together some location maps to help you get orientated. Our aim is to keep you informed about the development of this project; the project status, key milestones, investors and future occupants.
Resources & Infrastructure
Steps are underway to ensure sufficient supply of basic resources such as water and power. GoAP has committed to installing a pipeline, capable of carrying dedicated capacity of 20 million gallons of water/day for multiple fabs and other manufacturing in Fab City, by the end of this year. Up to 200 MW of electric power is being made available for Fab City with two different grid lines.
