Quote:
2010-09-14 20:00:00


The Karnataka government has set in motion the process to acquire 10,000 acres of land for its ambitious Rs.100,000-crore Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR).

'Notification to acquire over 2,000 acres of land has been issued and for the remaining 8,000 acres of land it will be done in a week,' State IT and BT Minister Katta Subramanya Naidu told reporters here.

The ITIR is to come up in three phases near Devanahalli, about 35 km from city centre, and close to the Bangalore International Airport.

The first phase of the project in around 2,000 acres of land envisages an investment of Rs.25,000 crore and the work would begin in December, he said.

The development of the entire ITIR is to be completed in 12 years. 'When fully operational, it is expected to provide employment to about four million people,' Naidu said.

The minister said new policy on hardware and animation is to be announced in October- end.

Launch of IT mega city in December

Bangalore: The State Government will launch the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) project near Devanahalli by December.

The Government, with support from the Centre, has decided to set up the ITIR on 10,000 acres of land with an investment of Rs. 1 lakh crore in phases. Consequently, the ITIR Act has already been gazetted.

Addressing presspersons here on Tuesday, Minister for Information Technology and Biotechnology Katta Subramanya Naidu said the first phase of the project, to come up on 2,072 acres of land, will be launched in December. It will be an integrated information technology (IT) city with all physical and social infrastructure, involving an investment of Rs. 25,000 crore in two years.

Mr. Naidu said: “Preliminary notification has been issued for 2,072 acres and the survey work for the balance 8,000 acres is almost over.” The project envisages employment to 40 lakh people and will be completed in 10-15 years through PPP model.

The project requires the approval of 24 Union Government departments and already no-objection certificates (NoCs) have been obtained from 16 departments. The department of Human Resource Development, Urban Development and Environment and Forests have made certain observations, while Home and Railways departments are yet to give their views.

The Minister said no village will be relocated during the land acquisition and barren lands would be acquired for the project. A water project is planned at Chickballapur to supply water to the ITIR. The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) would supply 70 MLD of recycled water.

IT parks

The Government has also decided to set up IT parks in Shimoga, Mangalore, Gulbarga, and Mysore on PPP model basis. The contract for the Gulbarga IT Park would be awarded today (September 15) and it would come up on 53,000 sq. ft, he said.

A private cluster of biotech parks would come up near Electronics City in Bangalore via PPP mode. A State supported incubation centre and instrumentation facility in the biotech park in Bangalore would be rented out for private entrepreneurs for innovations, he said.

An agri-BT park would be set up at Dharwad, which is a joint venture of University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, and a private firm. It would involve a cost of Rs. 80 crore. A marine park would come up in Mangalore and the identification of the private partner is to be finalised soon, he said.

Up and coming projects

Two BT finishing schools — Manipal Life Sciences Centre, Manipal, and Dayanand Sagar, Bangalore — had commenced.

The Government has provided 25 per cent of the total cost while the rest would be incurred by the private developer, he said. Each school would be set up at a cost of Rs. 4 crore.

The department has decided to give permission for 10 schools and it had already received 25 proposals.

The Minister said 20 rural BPO units have been sanctioned and of them, 16 have commenced operations.

I know . Mysore Paper Mills area of Belogola is in Mandya district but it has got good access only from Mysore. Its like KRS Dam, though technically in Mandya District, for all practical purpose it is in Mysore. If you want to work at Belogala, you should stay in Mysore. If you stay in Mandya you will not be able to reach office in time

‘State focussing on IT spread, tier II cities'

MYSORE: Describing Mysore as the second most important destination for information technology in the State after Bangalore, the Principal Secretary to the Government on IT, BT and ST, Ashok Kumar C. Manoli, said the Government was now focussing on dispersal of IT and development of tier II cities.

He was speaking after laying the foundation stone for Software Paradigm Infotech's SPICity project here on Thursday.

Mr. Manoli said Mysore with 53 companies, including Infosys, had contributed Rs. 1,000 crore worth of software exports during the last financial year. Mysore had emerged as the most important and potential IT destination after Bangalore mainly because of its close proximity to the State capital.

Mr. Manoli said there were distinct advantages of moving to tier II cities such as Mysore as research and analysis had proved that the operating costs, including salaries to employees, were down by 36 per cent, which had to be capitalised. The new campus in the Hebbal Industrial Area would have a built up area of 85,000 sq ft and create 1,000 new jobs taking the SPI's global employee strength to 2,500.

He said the State was now promoting BPO firms in rural areas and had established 16 such units in various places, including Srirangapatana and Gundlupet near Mysore. This has been done primarily to provide employment to the rural youth. Similarly, under the e-PCO scheme, the State had revived the defunct PCOs to provide opportunities in self-employment and augment income generation of PCO owners. BPO and e-PCO would contribute more to IT penetration in rural areas, he added.

Sunil Agarwal, Commissioner of Police, who presided over the function, spoke about how the Police Department had harnessed IT to further its efficacy and remarked in a lighter vein that the police could not continue to rely on its age-old hardware – the lathi.

He said Karnataka was among the first States to have cyber police almost 10 years ago and there were plans to help people file FIR from home with the help of IT.

Sid Mookerji, Chief Executive Officer of SPI, said the new complex would become operational in 18 months and had been necessitated to accommodate the growing requirements of the organisation in terms of new clients, acquisitions fuelled by growth.

He said SPI had achieved a year-on-year growth rate of 69 per cent over the last few years despite recession and slowdown and had established its presence in Singapore, Canada, U.K., Australia and the U.S.

Mr. Mookerji said SPI's focus on retail market was a major differentiator which enabled the company to establish itself and grow.

John Cook, Chairman, and senior officials of SPI were present.

In terms of IT, MYS is in the league of TVM and CBE (which is catching up).

Salem is predominantly an industrial (steel) city. Kanchipuram is a temple town-most of the IT and Industrial developments are happening in Sriperumbudur,Oragadam and Siruseri in Kanchipuram district - these areas can be taken to be under the purview of Chennai.

Mysore has to grow, to decongest Bangalore (still remember the Greater Bangalore comedies in another thread )

We dont want manufacturing (like those cities you mentioned) in mys/blore because Cauvery water is limited - supply to both cities. Let manufacturing go to Tungabhadra of Bellary or Krishna of Gulbarga.

Wait 6 months, wipro campus should be turning point for mysore. I am skeptical about andhra's anantapur SEZ plans in karnataka border, maximum it can become a hosur like town. Infy made in mysore because that is Murthy's hometown, but wipro coming because of potential. Also it is a sure shot million plus city in 2011 census, where will we bring water from?
