Software exports from Tiruchi set to rise

Value of software exports from Tiruchi region will increase several-fold from the existing level of Rs. 26.21 crore per year, the Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin said after inaugurating the IT Park of ELCOT at Navalpattu here on Thursday.

Mr. Stalin attributed Tamil Nadu's rise to occupy the second position in the country in software and hardware exports to the comprehensive IT policy devised by the Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi in 1996 during the DMK's previous stint.

IT Secretary P.W.C. Davidar said that the IT-cum-administrative building at Navalpattu was completed in one year and two months' time. Companies establishing their units in the IT park would source local talent, he said. The Managing Director of ELCOT Santhosh Babu said that the IT Park would usher in significant economic growth similar to the development brought about by BHEL.
