“Basically, this is an intelligent electronics centre incubation facility, which we are trying to set up along with STPI (Software Technology Parks of India) and the Ministry of Information and Technology in all the states at least one city in every state. So either it is an electro-park or a centre of excellence, vice- chairman of India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) Satya Gupta told reporters here.
The first such incubation centre was started in Delhi and in a couple of months, it would be set up in
The next plan is to have medical electronics centre in Lucknow and then an agritech centre in Ranchi and one is planned in Punjab, Gupta said.

Another such incubation centre has been planned in Bengaluru, which would be called IoT Centre of Excellence Lab, Gupta said.
