TCS gives design contract for Rajarhat SEZ

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has awarded the Rs 970-crore contract for design and construction of special economic zone at Rajarhat to a consortium of L&T Construction and Shapoorji Pallonji. The SEZ, being developed by TCS, is spread over 40-acres in Rajarhat Action Area III. The SEZ notification, though, was made way back in May, 2008.

Built with the plan to employ 16,000 by TCS, the project is slated to be completed in two phases. The first phase is scheduled to be over by February 15, 2014, which will have the capacity to accommodate 7,000 workstations. The remaining 9,000 will be accommodated with the completion of the project at the end of 32 months from now.

"Immediate mobilization of the project has started and the site office is being constructed," a source said.

TOI has learnt that the concept design for the project has been provided by the TCS to L&T Construction and Shapoorji Pallonji, based on which the final design is being chalked out. "It is a design-built project, where it will be developed by the two firms and in completion, the project will be handed over to TCS," the source said.

An L&T Construction spokesperson told TOI: "We are very positive about the project and hope it would end within the scheduled time frame."

Earlier, L&T Construction and Shapoorji Pallonji had executed many TCS projects together. L&T Construction is known for its engineering skills, whereas Shapoorji for its designing acumen.

When contacted a TCS official said: "The company is doing its job." Though, he declined to elaborate further on the project details.

TCS, engaged in IT services, business solutions and outsourcing, already has four units operating in Salt Lake Sector V, the IT hub of the city. It has also taken a space in Unitech SEZ in Rajarhat. This project will be its sixth initiative in the state. It already employs around 12,000 in the city.

TCS plans to double its headcount in Kolkata in next 2 years
Will spend Rs 1,350 crore to set up 16,500-seat campus in Rajarhat

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the largest software exporter in the country, today said it plans to double its headcount in Kolkata over the next two to three years. The software firm will spend Rs 1,350 crore to set up a new campus in Rajarhat, Kolkata that will create additional 16,500 jobs.

"Our growing presence in Kolkata continues to be of strategic importance for our overall business growth. We have around 18,000 employees in our offices in Kolkata. By end of financial year 2014-15, we expect to have around 35,000 employees here," S Mahalingam, chief financial officer and executive director at TCS, told reporters here today.

The new campus, spread over 40 acres of land, will be built in two phases. The first phase is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2014 and the second phase by the fourth quarter of the year.

In the first phase, 7,000 seats will be ready while the remaining 9,500 seats will be completed during the second phase.

Tata Realty and Infrastructure has been given the responsibility for overall development of the project. Tata Consulting Engineers is the project management partner while a joint venture of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Shapoorji Pallonji & Co will execute the project.

The new campus in Kolkata is also classified as IT SEZ (information technology special economic zone). TCS currently has five IT SEZs across India and is building three more including the new campus in Kolkata.
