Cairn India Holdings Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vedanta Limited had bought a controlling stake in Avanstrate Inc, a Japanese glass substrate manufacturer in 2017. Avanstrate has applied for setting up a semiconductor plant and a display manufacturing unit in India.

Vedanta Limited has recently signed a MoU with Foxconn to form a joint venture focused on manufacturing semiconductors in India. Vedanta is the first company to announce the joint venture in the electronics manufacturing space after the Government of India announced a production linked incentive scheme for semiconductor and display board production in the country.
