“Additional 30 Acre” to Infy, agrees State Government

IT major Infosys has demanded additional 30- acre land for establishing its software delivery centre in the city. The State Government has agreed to allot the additional land and a letter conveying governments agreement would be sent to the company on Friday.

Industry Minister Kailash Vijayvergiya said that the State Cabinet had approved the allotment of 100- acre land to the company and the decision was sent to the company via e- mail. Acknowledging the receipt of Cabinet decision, the company said that it had asked for 130- acre land for its centre.

Vijayvergiya admitted the error on his part and said that letter allotting 130 acre land to the company has been prepared and would be dispatched to the company in anticipation of Cabinet approval for the same.

Vijayvergiya further said that both TCS and Infosys had drawn up tentative plan and the construction on allotted land was likely to start in April 2012. He further said that the technical team of Infosys had already visited the city and the proposed site while technical team of the TCS was still in the city.

Vijayvergiya also said that following the land allotment to the IT majors, the State Government has received inquiries from four of the top 20 IT companies listed by National Association of Software and Services Companies ( NASSCOM) to establish their software delivery centres. He said that at least two of the four companies are expected to establish their centres positively.
