Well, its really great to see, the first series of invitations and brochures made for Emerging Kerala, to be distributed among Investors for the upcoming Emerging Kerala Meet; features our own Infopark-2



I hope, the govt will address the long pending due of Govt's support and attention for Kochi's IT growth. Its surely a good move, as it help investors community across the world, to one of the best investment proposals in the country to be considered so......

Infopark Kochi in expansion mode

The IT Park will evolve into a full-fledged IT hub offering work and leisure space as it expands.



Quote:
Buoyed by the sustained growth since its inception in 2004, Infopark Kochi is taking up a major Phase-II expansion plan for the creation of a full-fledged IT hub in 160 acres of land in the suburban Puthencruz and Kunnathunadu villages in Ernakulam district.

This is in perfect tune with Infopark's basic vision to provide a holistic environment to make the knowledge industry competitive and first-class.

FOCUS

“The focus isn't just on constructing buildings for IT companies, but creating a wholesome infrastructure for Kerala's IT sector,” Mr Gigo Joseph, CEO, Infopark says.

Spread over 100 acres with more than 100 companies, Infopark Kochi is a growing establishment in expansion mode.

While the focus of Phase-I was mainly on constructing buildings for IT companies, Phase-II aims at creating an IT hub that offers an excellent environment for work and leisure.

He said that they have already started construction work on the second phase, and the first IT building, with an estimated built-up space of five lakh square feet, will be ready by December next year.

“For an IT park to be a success, it has to incorporate a host of facilities that make life comfortable and happening, to entice professionals to come and be a part of it. Most IT companies prefer a location which is close to playing areas, cafeterias, plazas, housing colonies and proper roads, so that they can provide their employees with an excellent standard of living,” explains Mr Joseph.

According to him, the long-term focus of Phase-II is to create 80 lakh square feet of space in 8 years, which would translate into 80,000 jobs. This involves an investment of Rs 2,500 crore, of which Rs 500 crore will come from Infopark, and the rest from private players. In Phase-II, there will be more of a structured approach, and work on this has already started, he said.

He said that Phase-I was a great success, and Phase-II aims to be a bigger success, as each and every aspect has already been planned out well in advance. To offer a balanced lifestyle of work and recreation, Phase-II will feature a promenade in the centre, with shops on both the sides. Another attractive feature will be the 10-metre riverside walkway, with little shops on the sides. The planned infrastructure includes a stadium, hotels and hostels for working women and housing facilities. Approximately 20 acres have been specifically set aside for commercial activities, he added.

IT EXPORTS

The IT scene in Kerala continues to be optimistic, irrespective of the fact that Kerala, at present, lags behind some other cities, in being one of the favoured destinations for IT companies. In fact, a lot of developmental activities are happening in Infopark, and all these contribute a lot to Kerala's economy.

Every year, Rs 900 crore worth of exports are being done from Infopark, and this year, it is expected to reach Rs 1,300 crore. The Government projects IT exports to grow to $300 billion by 2020, and major growth will happen in the Tier-II cities. Kochi, which is positioned as the Number 1 Tier-II city, offers good opportunities for companies keen on reducing operational costs, hiring talented professionals, and reducing the rate of attrition.

Infopark, Kochi, is perhaps the greenest industrial activity, an environmentally-clean development activity that contributes a lot to the entire economy, he said.

Currently, there is a great demand from SMEs, most often for 1000-2000 square feet of space. Large multinational companies have specific demands and requirements. They finalise on the place after conducting independent evaluation, for which they seek the assistance of International Property Consultants (IPC), and they depend on builders and property developers.

To attract such companies, Mr Joseph said that a proposal is being worked out to engage IPC to market Phase-II and engage major developers as co-developers. To promote Phase-II, multitrade shows and seminars will be organised to spread awareness regarding the facilities offered by the park, he added.

Thats good to hear. Hopefully by EOY 2013 we will have the new IT/BPO complex fully operational.

TCS work is also progressing well

There are also talks going between Infopark and CREDAI KOCHI and it is expected some of these may partner Infopark in developing phase 2 which will help in addressing the issue of IT space shortage.

Budgetary allocation to boost Infopark expansion
Quote:
The allocation of Rs. 42 crore for Infopark, Kochi, in the State Budget will give a big push to its second phase expansion. The allocation has boosted its chances of raising the targeted fund for the current financial year.

The allocation is an increase of 47.36 per cent compared to the budgetary assistance of Rs. 28.50 crore provided during the last year. Besides, the Infopark's extension in Koratty and Ambalapuzha will also benefit from Rs. 17 crore allocated by the Finance Minister with Kozhikode IT Park being the other beneficiary. Infopark Chief Executive Officer Gigo Joseph expressed satisfaction about the allocation. Infopark will invest about Rs. 250 crore during next financial for its second phase of expansion and that of its spokes in Cherthala, Ambalapuzha and Koratty. Construction work was already underway on the second phase proposed on 160-odd acres in Puthencruz and Kunnathunadu villages and the first IT building with an estimate built-up space of 5 lakh sq.ft is likely to be ready by December next year. By 2020, the second phase will generate 80,000 jobs.

Infopark is exploring the scope for getting more land for expanding its built-up space in Koratty IT Park from the existing 55,000 sq.ft. The park will go for Special Economic Zone status if more land is available or else it will opt for two-lakh sq.ft-IT building capable of generating 2,000 jobs as a non-SEZ facility.

Does anyone have photos of Infopark Phase II construction? Have they really started construction?

I feel that still we are nowhere when we see Technopark expansion. They have reached Phase II, III and Technocity. Infosys is building another campus in Technocity. They already have a campus in Technopark Phase II or III.Are we lagging behind? Smart city is still hanging without construction starting.

The construction took shape along with the smart city ground breaking period.At first huge loads of soil were taken from many places and they created a temp road and cleared and massed up the plot for first Complex.
Now huge crains are setting up and looks piling works will be completed very soon.
I am pretty sure that this government is having a positive attitude in terms of providing IT space available for the IT giants lined up in kerala.

CTS- Cognizant have not started their works yet. They are running their business from Atulya now. Dont know when can we expect them to start the construction works.
