The first plant will be a phone enclosure project, with an investment of USD 350 million (Rs 3,000 crore). The second plant will be a semicon equipment project, with a projected investment of USD 250 million (Rs 2,000 crore).
The phone enclosure project will be located in the Devanahalli Industrial Area, while the semicon equipment project will be located in the Electronic City. Both projects are expected to be completed within the next two years.
