IT parks in Tiruchi, Madurai and Tirunelveli will be ready in next 8-12 weeks

The Information Technology (IT) Parks and ELCOT owned 50,000 sq.ft building inside the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in Tiruchi, Madurai and Tirunelveli will be ready in the next 8 to 12 weeks time, said P.W.C. Davidar, IT Secretary on Wednesday.

Talking to The Hindu, he said that it would take some more months for the Hosur IT Park to get going as the work order was given recently and the work would commence soon. The IT department was racing against time to complete the ELCOT buildings including infrastructure work for entire SEZs at Tiruchi, Madurai and Tirunelveli.

“We have created the right kind of physical infrastructure and are looking for both big and smaller units to occupy it. We will give them a minimum of one acre of land. We have many engineering colleges around these places and they are doing well and hence finding the right firm will not be a problem,” he said.

Santhosh Babu, Managing Director, Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT), said that a road show will be held in the city during the first week of September to market IT parks as well as ELCOT incubation centres at SEZ. Around 400 CEOs have been invited for the road show.

“Henceforth, land allotment would be an easy process, since ELCOT has been given the guidelines to do it on a fast track basis. The entire process can be completed within two or three days. Those firms having Rs.1 crore turnover or Rs.50 lakh export turnover can ask for a minimum of one acre of land,” Mr. Babu said.
