It seems the minister (purposefully) gave a wrong reply (which got corrected in the document)... Elections are approaching, right.

The difference cannot be 7K Cr. And, what are the major companies outside State IT parks / STPI?

NIE Reporter has tweeted the figures stand corrected.

I cannot understand what VK Mathews says.. He said Kerala was good for work and life previously but now it is good only for living. How come Kerala was good for work in olden days? How come Banks are going down in Kerala when Kerala is getting millions from middle east work force?

Here is an eyewitness account.

Quote:
I was present there. VK was suggesting that Kerala should brand itself as an ideal destination to 'work and Live'. reg the branches of banks he was mentioning about most of the banking activities going online and a possible trend of lesser physical presence needed for banks, the Kodak story was a reference to a major player affected by disruption. he was comparing and contrasting the valuations of the ubers with that of the large old generation companies with huge physicals assets.
Mr Mathews did a context setting as to why CII is embarking upon such a Summit. he spoke about the industry at large .
The news is totally out of place , some are contradictory to what he said and the rest is the lack of understanding of the reporter who made his version of it.

IT parks at Cheemeni, Eramam by next year

Notwithstanding the concerns about the feasibility of the proposed Information Technology parks by the Cyberpark in the interior locations of Kannur and Kasaragod districts, the two projects will be a reality by November next year.

Eramam in Kannur and Cheemeni in Kasaragod will soon be on the IT map of the State. The work on the industrial parks for start-ups in IT and IT-enabled Services (ITeS) started this month. Though the stone for the projects were laid in 2011, the commencement of the work got delayed owing to various factors. There were reservations about the feasibility of developing the IT parks in remote rural locations.

Confidence

Officials of the Cyberpark, a State government organisation modelled on the Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram and the Infopark in Kochi to promote IT investments in Malabar, exude confidence that the facilities will attract small and medium entrepreneurs (SMEs) in the IT/ITeS sector.

The two projects coming up are scaled-down version of the original project.

According to the original plan, the IT parks would have a built area of 1.5 lakh sq ft each.

It is hoped that the SMEs in the IT/ITES sector will find the facilities attractive enough because they will be less expensive than those in urban areas.

Cyberpark general manager P.A. Tomichan told The Hindu that the first phase of the projects now under way envisages buildings with 50,000 sq ft each with state-of-the-art infrastructure including roads and connectivity.

Marketing initiatives have been under way to attract IT and ITeS start-ups to the facilities.

The projects are started with the financial aid of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), which has approved loans of Rs.20 crore each for the twin projects.

The work has been awarded to two companies, for separate civil work and steel structure work.

The projects will be ready for commissioning by November next year, according to Cyberpark officials.

Land transfer

At Cheemani, the government has transferred 100 acres of land of the Plantation Corporation of Kerala to the Cyberpark.

As the park at Eramam is being set up on a 26-acre plot transferred by the government, the officials said that moves are being made to get more land there for future development of the proposed park.

Kerala's IT Industry Fast Spreading to Rural Areas
Quote:
The rural pockets in the State are making strides in development of the Information Technology (IT) sector, while the sector is mainly concentrated in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode. Koratty, Cherthala, Kannur, Piravom, Kollam and Kasargod are the areas where the IT sector is growing in Kerala. With the State setting an ambitious target of $3 billion business and five lakh jobs in the IT sector, contribution of the rural pockets cannot be neglected. In an attempt to promote IT outside Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode, the State Government is in the process of promoting Technopark in Kollam; Infoparks in Cherthala and Koratty and Cyberparks in Kannur and Kasaragod.

"The total IT business in the State, both domestic and export, will be around $1.6 billion by the year-end. By setting up the Technopark, Infoparks and Cyberparks, the government is planning to develop satellite units near the IT hubs so as to promote IT in the regional pockets. Compared to other parts of the country, Kerala offers 30 per cent lower costs and provides electricity at `5.51 per unit, which is the lowest in the country. Such factors will help us achieve the target of 5 lakh jobs by 2020. At five per cent, the attrition rate in Kerala is very low, compared to 25 per cent in Bengaluru," said Infopark-Kochi chief executive officer Hrishikesh Nair.

At present, there are over 600 IT companies operating in the State, and about 11 per cent of the the country's total IT workforce is from Kerala. The Koratty Infopark is spread in 30 acres, with a built-up space of around 50,000 sqft. The new 3.3-lakh sqft IT block is expected to be completed by year-end. A total of 29 companies are operating in Infopark Thrissur, employing around 700 persons. Around 3,000 new jobs are expected to be created once the new IT block becomes fully occupied by January 2016. The Cherthala Infopark is spread in 60 acres, and has a built-up space of 2.4 lakh sqft. Now, about 20 companies are operating in the facility.

"Apart from the traditional areas, IT should grow into rural pockets in the State. Then only the State can become a significant player in the sector. At present, there are visible signs that rural Kerala is also willing to embrace IT," said Kerala Startup Society president K C Chandrasekharan Nair.

Selfies or Power Point Presentations, this Digital Ring Does it All
Published: 14th December 2015 03:41 AM

Rohildev and his startup Fin Robotics came into the limelight when the company (its name was RHLVision then) raised around $2,00,000 (about `1.34 cro re) from 1,600 people across the globe through crowdfunding in 2014.

Till that date no startup from the state was able to raise such a big amount. The amount was to make Fin, a tiny hardware product that you can wear on your thumb as a ring and which converts your whole palm into a gesture interface.

Rohildev N
Hails from Malappuram district in Kerala, Rohildev N started RHLVision in 2012 at the Startup Village in Kochi to work on touchless technologies, a project he started during his final year of engineering.
After one-and-a-half-year of continuous efforts after the crowdfunding success in 2014, the company has launched its product in the market and the name was changed from Fin to Neyya.

RHLVision also changed its name to Fin Robotics and shifted its base from Kochi to Thiruvananthapuram.

Neyya, formerly called ‘Fin’, is a smart ring which has a metal frame and a jewel like ‘smart’ chiclet. The ring has features that enables you to take selfies, play music, get call or message notifications and even giving power point presentations, all with a swap or tap of your palm.

“The ring can be connected to the laptop via bluetooth while it has LED indicators which notify you of calls or messages. It is like any normal ring which you can wear in your index or any other finger of your choice,” says Rohildev, founder of Fin Robotics.

Neyya is built in Japan and is available in two versions: one in titanium finish and the other 18-carat gold-plated.

It can be ordered online, and shipping has begun.

Apart from crowd-funding Fin Robotics has raised $3 million from Kalaari Capital, a venture capital firm, in Series A investment to make Neyya a reality.

Rohildev reveals that it took the startup 250 days to develop the concept into a product, starting to make the prototypes in 2013.

Fin Robotics was selected as one of the top 50 startups in the world from 2,000 startups all over the world at the Pioneers Festival 2013 held in Vienna. Also, it was among the top 15 startups in the world at the CES’14 TechCrunch Hardware Battlefield at Las Vegas.

Kochi to Generate 4 Out of 10 IT Jobs



KOCHI:As the state nurtures the dream of generating five lakh jobs by 2020 in the Information Technology (IT) space, Kochi is also set to become a significant contributor to this ambitious target. With the rolling out of Smart City and the second phase of Infopark, the city is likely to generate around two lakh IT jobs. It simply means, when 10 jobs in IT are created in the state, four will be in Kochi. Besides, the city will be able to generate around six to eight lakh indirect jobs as well.

Currently, Technopark is the biggest provider of IT jobs in Kerala with over 50,000 posts and the landmark campus will create an equal number of jobs once expansion works are completed.

“The second phase of Infopark, in over 160 acres, is envisioned as a ‘walk-to-work’ township project, comprising educational and healthcare facilities along with hotels, shopping malls, multiplexes and convention centres. The ambitious Rs 2,500-crore phase II project is aimed at creating 8 million square feet futuristic work space for IT, ITeS companies and generating about 80,000 job opportunities. The Smart City project will add similar number of jobs to the youth in the state. Altogether, these mega projects have the strength to give two lakh new job opportunities,” said Infopark CEO Hrishikesh Nair.

The total IT business in the state, both domestic and export, will be around $1.6 billion by the year-end. At present, there are over 600 IT companies operating in the state, and about 11 per cent of the country’s total IT workforce is from Kerala.

Another highlight of the city is the presence of incubators in the district. As the space in these facilities will be well-equipped, they will have the capacity to generate around 5,000 to 7,000 jobs altogether and even more by 2020. The major incubators operating in the city are the Startup Village at Kalamasserry; Technolodge at Piravom; KSIDC Business Incubator at Kakkanad; Infopark’s Technology Business Centre at Kaloor; NRI-Technology Business Incubator at Infopark; Myenterprise by KITCO at Kakkanad; KSIDC Incubator at INKEL in Angamaly; CUSAT Incubator, a fisheries technology and business incubator at Kerala University of Fisheries and Ocean Studies (KUFOS) in Panangad; and SCMS Engineering College at Karukutty. Soon, Kerala Chapter of the Indian Institute of Architecture (IIA) and Rajagiri College will start incubators in the city.

All these incubators are now in the process of expansion and are creating more space to accommodate new companies.

So where are the remaining 6 out of 10 jobs coming from!

This title would have been the same even if it was 1 out of 10 IT jobs @ Kochi...I Love ad such campaigns !!

Anyway its a myth that built up IT space will translate into IT jobs by 2020 !!.It will take atleast few decades to develop and place these 40mn+ sq ft (pan Kerala)!!
