I mentioned that the news is for bangalore and I believe there are huge number of members in this Forums who has their root in West Bengal but staying in Bangalore. I don't see anything good happening in IT in Kolkata and most of the Threads are only full of "Tarka Bitarka". Let my friends who are in Bangalore but checks this Forums regularly be happy about it or members like me in Kolkata knows what going on around India in Industrial sector.

Agreed . This should be in Bangalore Forums. I am deleting my post. No issues.
I also feel there is should be a thread where a person who stays in West Bengal can see all the good things happening around India in Industry or other sector.Since he is native of West Bengal he may not interested in going to other thread to check those details Or it may not be possible to go an check each and every Individual cities related thread to find that out. Currently , there are so many friends who have their root in West Bengal but spread throughout India because of Job/other reason, they can be good source for us to let us know what is going good in other part of India.I know creating a thread can be easily done, but before that opinion of other members are also necessary otherwise there is no point in just keeping on increasing the number of thread in west Bengal or Kolkata Forums.

for those are interested in what's going around across the nation and around the world can/does checks-in the other regional thread..SSC at least is a forum where one can know almost everything going around the world

So, IMO no need for any more threads..other than the infra/dev related threads...

@amibangali
How can we have a thread under Kolkata, where development news from all over India can be included. The very motive of SSC is to have separate regional threads only to access knowledge & developmental news about all parts of the country. Infact, there are many national threads, not restricted to any region, where you'll surely find infos you're looking for.

Yes, in Manesar, we saw how professional people manage a company. I wonder what they would have done to our state.

You need to wonder, you can see what the leftist unions have done to our state already. Its just that MB is adopting an even more hardliner stance towards the industry - she is not even allowing people to set up industries, creating ruckus is only secondary. And why digress from the point? You said that even "highly educated management professionals" find it difficult to manage even a few thousand people. MB cant really claim to be a highly educated management professional. Then what makes you think that she will do a good job in managing a few crores of people?

The question is not about a person trying to change the state. No single person can do that and those who are projecting a single person of being able to change all bad things into good things are creating false hopes.

The bigger question is will this person change? From being a street fighting opposition leader whose only job was to oppose everything to being a true visionary leader of the state?

State gets first IT policy in 9 years

cc: ToI

Quote:
After a nine-year wait,the state on Thursday finally got its Information & Communication Technology and Incentive Scheme Policy.With IT minister Partha Chatterjee by her side,chief minister Mamata Banerjee announced the approval of the ICT Policy at a cabinet subcommittee meeting on industry,infrastructure and employment.
In the new policy,the government has decided to have a Rs 10-crore venture capital fund for the IT department.In the draft IT policy,the amount was fixed at Rs 50 crore.But we have decided to keep it at Rs 10 crore for the time being, Mamata said.Both hardware and software policies are embedded in the ICT Policy 2012.
Under the ICT investment scheme,districts have been divided into four categories A,B,C and D where D indicates remotest place.Any company,which is willing to set up unit at these places,will get maximum incentive,a source said.This D zone is the new addition in the policy.The bouquet of incentives the policy offers include capital investment subsidy,interest subsidy,employment generation subsidy,subsidy for quality improvement and patents in the MSME sector,incentives for approved expansion project of an existing unit,mega projects and CST refund scheme.
The policy has also brought into its fold the animation and the gaming industry,which will enjoy incentives like investment subsidy of 12% up to a limit of Rs 3.5 crore payable in five equal yearly installment for A & B areas,subsidy of 15% up to a limit of Rs 4.5 crore payable in five equal yearly installment for C & D areas and assistance for students with learning disabilities and those from the economically backward families.
The policy,first since 2003,aims at geographic decentralization of the IT industry and benefit rural population in the state.The government has set a target to become one of the top three states in respect of turnover and employment generation in the IT,ITeS and electronic system design and manufacturing (ESDM) sectors by 2020.It is also looking at increasing West Bengals share in production of electronic good in India to 15% by value within 2020.Under the ESDM sector,it targets to build at least 15 clusters in the state in the next five years,a dedicated hardware cell of the IT department and a design centre.
It was also suggested on Thursday that the states IT department will be renamed as the Information Technology and Electronics Department,recognizing the importance of the ESDM sector.

TECH PLANS

> Venture capital fund for the IT department fixed at 10 crore
> Districts divided into four categories A,B,C and D.Firms setting up shops in D zone to get maximum facility
> Animation and gaming industry brought into the fold of IT policy
> Policy aims at making state one of the top three states in terms of turnover and employment generation in IT and ITeS sectors

1,000 IT jobs for the taking,only if govt can find land

cc: ToI

Quote:
The change of guard in Bengal has brought no change for a project of ITC Infotech,which has been put on hold for seven years.
The Left Front administration had failed to allot land for the project,which would have got Bengal at least 1,000 jobs.The new government,which claims to be bullish on investment,has not been of much help,either.
In 2005,ITC Infotech a wholly owned subsidy of ITC had approached the state government for land to start its unit in Bengal.Seven years on,the company is still waiting for a positive response.
It is learnt that a 15-acre plot in Rajarhat had been earmarked for the project,but it has not yet been handed over to the company.According to state IT department officials,the matter was discussed at one of the recent cabinet sub-committee meetings on industry,infrastructure and employment,but no steps have been taken as the resolution of the meeting hasnt come out yet.
The price of the land earmarked for ITC Infotech stood at Rs 1.5 crore per acre.By now,it has gone up by 25%,say experts.
Hidco managing director Debasis Sen passed the buck to the state IT department,which explained that land cannot be allotted to any company until it is approved by the cabinet.
Amidst this confusion,the government still holds out hope.IT minister Partha Chatterjee said: I am hopeful that this problem will be sorted out soon and ITC Infotech will get its required 15 acre.
During the ministers visit to the companys headquarters in Bangalore last year,its officials showed interest in starting operations in the city.The company offers IT services and solutions for industries like banking,financial services and insurance (BFSI),retail,manufacturing,travel,hospitality,consumer packaged goods (CPG),transportation and logistics.It has whollyowned subsidiaries in the UK and the US with its registered office in Kolkata.
Asked about details of the companys plans in the city,an ITC spokesperson told TOI: ITC Infotech has expressed its keen desire to establish a campus in Kolkata.However,it will be premature to discuss project details at this stage.
At present,ITC Infotech employs around 5,000 employees,mostly in its Bangalore unit.It has offices in Pune and Trivandrum as well.According to sources,this project of ITC Infotech could have generated 1,000 jobs.

LONG WAIT

The company had approached the state government for land in 2005 A 15-acre plot in Rajarhat had been earmarked for the project,but no decision to hand it over was taken Per acre would actually cost 1.5 cr.Now itll cost 25% more due to price escalation ITC Infotechs unit in the state would have generated employment of at least 1,000 people

From the PS blog:

Yesterday was the last date of dropping bids for a 2.5 acre plot at Action Area II of New Town, Kolkata, beside the Major Arterial Road. It was meant for a Retail cum Office Complex. The highest bid was Rs 51.13 crore. This is the highest ever price fetched in the recent past tenders / auctions. This works out to more than Rs 20 crore per acre or Rs 34 lakh per kottah.

Allotting land at a price which is way lower than the market price requires approval from the very top. In this case probably the CM or the Industry Minister. The way our political system function if the government allots land at Rs. 1.5 crores per acre, opposition will say its a case of corruption.

So, it seems that this project will also go into cold storage beacuse the land prices are high and it is very tough for government to allow them land at lower rate.Problems and hence more problem are just piling up and no solution in sight. More Frustrating.
