Anyone near Kalamassery or Kakkanad can easily get updates of this project. The location is the KINFRA park, near to HMT.

Any latest updates on this project? Actually this is one of the projects where something is happening in Kochi? I heard that this will become operational early 2013. Iam surprised that there was no mention of Nest Group at all in Emerging Kerala. Nest is one of the major industrial players in Kochi.

Just a reminder if anyone could check the status of this. This is a very important project as far as Kochi is considered. It will create more employment opportunities in Electronics sector

AFAIK, There is nothing much happening with this project.

Asianet or Manorama has reported a series of project happening in the Kalamassery-HMT land like Cybercity,NEST,Diamond park,BHEL...etc

They have reported like Nest is taking back with the project as they releasing out all the construction equipments from the location.


If any have seen this news pls comment on this.

Cybercity land should be taken back by HMT or GOK. As Achu mama says "Evar Bhoomafia ayaanu". Feels like he is correct to some extend in case of Cyber city and smart city.

But i really wish all these projects should come out with the real value and potential.

But construction is already halfway? Can this be done? So what will they do with the portion which they already constructed?

Can anyone cancel a project which is halfway?

Two misconceptions:

1. They did not "exit" SW business AFAIK, and there are no plans to "exit".
2. The focus on electronics business was never lost. They just don't make noise, because of confidentiality issues with the customer, that's all.

They haven't updated the site for some time. I haven't never been to that place myself. I just heard the update from an insider.
