Information Technology industry on upward trajectory

After the global economic slowdown of the past two years, India's IT Industry has reported better-than-expected earnings for the last quarter, putting it back on the upward trajectory.


Business is back to normal with economic recovery in U.S. and European markets, which account for about 80 per cent of Indian software exports.

With a positive business outlook, the IT sector is now on an expansion spree and has started hiring again.


Unveiling the information booklet of 'e-India 2010', L. Suresh, President, IT Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday said the IT industry in India is now growing at 13 to 15 per cent.


"According to projections primarily based by NASCOM, you will notice that this year the growth is expected to be around 13 to 15 per cent in the export business primarily because the world economy has seen a turn around and recession is no longer there in many countries especially the US. We also have a lot of domestic business from India. So we expect at least 15 per cent growth in the IT business in this year 2010-11," he added.


Software professionals in Hyderabad are in high spirits as most companies are offering incentives, after a lull in the last couple of years.


"Yes, my company is hiring people. Every weekend interviews are happening. My company is hiring more and more people. I think IT has recovered 50-60 per cent, I think. It is not like the situation last year or the year before," said Rehana, an IT employee.


India's back-office outsourcing business is expected to post a growth of 15 to 16 per cent in fiscal 2010-11 on growing demand from overseas clients.

Andhra aims third place in IT exports

Andhra Pradesh is targeting the third place in Information Technology exports in the country, a state government official said Wednesday.

K. Ratna Prabha, principal secretary, IT, said the state, though started late in IT exports, has reached the fourth position.

'Next year the state will reach third position,' she told a programme organised to announce that Hyderabad will host eINDIA 2010, India's largest event on Information and Communication Technology.

Karnataka tops in the IT exports in the country followed by Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

She said the state, which started IT exports a decade ago, recorded Rs.32,000 crore IT exports during 2008-09. 'The figures for 2009-10 are yet to be announced officially but the IT exports during the year reportedly stood at Rs.36,000 crore. The state has done well despite recession,' she said.

The official said the state's contribution to total IT exports from the country was 15 percent. 'Karnataka is contributing 30 percent. We will work hard to touch that figure,' she said.

Ratna Prabha also noted that the IT sector in Andhra Pradesh created 2.5 lakh direct and 10 lakh indirect jobs.

P. Venugopal, Director, STPI (software technology parks of India), Hyderabad, said it would not be impossible to catch up with Karnataka in IT exports. 'The cumulative exports from the state during last five years are higher than Karnataka. This shows we can compete with them,' he said.

BEML-led consortium set to bid for Hyderabad Metro

Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR), one of the country’s much delayed and crucial infrastructure projects, is all set to get a new lease of life. Defense public sector unit BEML is in the process of placing financial bids for the project through a consortium formed in association with Russian and Chinese infrastructure firms.

The BEML-led consortium comprises four partners. Other companies are Russian infrastructure major Transstroy, its Indian subsidiary Transstroy India, which will be the lead partner, and Chinese construction company CR18G.

Talking to FE, BEML chairman and managing director VRS Natarajan said, “Hopefully, our consortium will win the project as we have several advantages.” If the consortium bags the project, BEML will get the benefit of supplying more than 300 metro cars for the project that would fetch around Rs 3,000 crore to the company, Natarajan said.

The 71-km elevated metro rail project will be done in a public-private-partnership model on the basis of design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT). While other companies in the consortium will take care of design and construction, BEML would be responsible for supplying rolling stocks and spare parts, Natarajan added.

BEML has already won metro car orders from Bangalore and Delhi Metro Rail Corporations. The company won an order worth Rs 1,670 crore to supply 192 metro cars to Delhi Metro. It has bagged another order worth Rs 1,672 crore from Bangalore Metro for 150 cars. BEML is the only Indian company having exclusive manufacturing facility to assemble metro cars in India.

The HMR project has been in limbo since it was announced three years ago. With no shortlisted bidders coming forward to submit financial bids, the government has extended the deadline four times in the past two months.

The state government had earlier set April 9 as the deadline, and extended it to April 21 and then till June 7. Earlier this year, eight consortia had qualified to file the financial bids including those led by Reliance Infrastructure, Lanco Infratech, GVK, L&T, Soma-Straburg, Transstroy and Essar Group.

The government invited fresh global bids in July last year after scrapping the deal with Maytas, as it failed to achieve financial closure.

The project has been designed with an outlay of Rs 12,123 crore and upto 40% of the project cost could be given as viability gap funding by both the Centre and the state government, subject to competitive bidding. The Union government has sanctioned...

Master plan for extended HMDA areas

The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has conducted a consultative meeting with stakeholder departments for preparation of a master plan for the extended areas of the urban development authority.

The master plan for the HMDA extended area is being prepared for the development of the metropolitan region.

The state government had created HMDA by merging surrounding municipalities and gram panchayaths into the erstwhile Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA) in 2008. The HMDA has emerged as the second biggest metropolitan region with 7,225 sq km area in the country.

As the master plan did not include the extended area, officials have decided to prepare a master plan for the extended area also and the work began last year.

The authorities proposed to have multiple centres to reduce pressure on the core city area and Transit Orient Development along the major movement corridor like Outer Ring Road. Officials said priority was being given for integration of peripheral areas with the core area so that the entire HMDA would have uniform development.

Several measures would be incorporated in the master plan for protection of environment and provisions for proper connectivity, urban amenities and employment opportunities in the surrounding areas.

The proposed master plan would have about 25 urban pockets.

Fapcci to provide IT solutions to MSMEs in AP

The Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Fapcci), with technical support from city-based IT products company Syscon Solutions Private Limited, will be providing Syscon Cronus, an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state.

Part of the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), an international donor agency which is currently running about 35 projects around the world, the initiative is aimed at extending the solution to around 300 MSMEs during the current financial year, Syscon founder and managing director, Vijay Venkatesh, said here.

GTZ has initially introduced the SaaS tool in the pharmaceutical sector. Having seen its success in the pharma sector, GTZ has assigned the responsibility to Fapcci, including extending a small grant towards marketing support, to promote the solution for the benefit of MSMEs and other industry verticals, Fapcci said in a press release.

Fapcci, a state-level apex body of industry, commerce and trade, currently has 3,200 member companies and sees a potential to provide the IT solution to at least 1,500 of them through the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

“While the server will be hosted at the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) data centre in Hyderabad, Fapcci will be creating an internal resource pool of professionals, about 30 to start with, to support the MSMEs in training and implementation as well as to work as end-users,” he said.

Mr.P.Venugopal why do you mislead the naive public of Andhra.Even the cumulative figure of exports including IT software and hardware exports of Karnataka are much higher than A.P.The cumulative exoports of only TN is ahead of Karnataka.

IT Towers In City

Quote:
Hyderabad, June 25: A special IT tower will be set up near Kokapet in Hyderabad to cater to the needs of small and medium units. The IT principal secretary, Ms Ratnaprabha, said on Friday after a review meeting of the department there is a proposal to set up a similar IT tower in Visakhapatnam. The government gave the green signal for the IT Investment Region in the financial district in the city with financial help from the Centre.
“The Centre has agreed to give additional funds to improve infrastructure and provide world-class transport to the IT-IR. The work will be launched as soon the plans get approval,” said the IT minister, Mr Venkata Reddy.

The government will announce its IT policy on July 1, Mr Venkata Reddy told mediapersons at the secretariat. The policy would encourage small and medium IT units with more incentives and subsidies.
“The policy is meant to attract SMEs in the IT sector towards Special Economic Zones. At present most of these units are located in Software Technology Parks. As the STPI policy is coming to an end, the new policy is framed in such a way that it will ensure smooth transition of IT business to SEZs,” said the minister.
The Chief Minister reviewed the IT sector’s progress with the minister and officials and approved setting up of the tower at Hyderabad.

Master Plan to address needs of expanding metropolis



J.S. Ifthekhar


The expansion of the city is so prolific that policy makers have to redraw plans and chart out new growth strategies, writes, J.S. Ifthekhar

–File Photo

New strategies:The draft Master Plan for the extended area of HUDA aims at integrating the peripheral areas with the core and intermediate areas.


Eonomic slowdown or no, Hyderabad is growing exponentially. The expansion is so prolific that policy makers have to redraw plans and chart out new growth strategies. Last week the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority came up with a Master Plan to address the current needs of the fast expanding metropolis.

The draft Master Plan for the extended area of HUDA aims at integrating the peripheral areas with the core and intermediate areas so that the entire Hyderabad Metropolitan Region becomes one entity. The extended area comprises 635 settlements, including 26 uninhabited villages and 7 urban settlements spread over an area of 4920.53 sq. km. As per the 2001 Census, the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad has a population of 36 lakh, Hyderabad Urban Agglomeration 20 lakh and extended area of HUDA 13 lakh.

According to B.P. Acharya, Metropolitan Commissioner, HMDA, the main objective of the Master Plan is to channelise development in a phased and planned manner.

The projected population of HMDA is set to touch the 1.84 crore mark by 2031 and of this the population of extended HUDA area will be 47 lakh. As such authorities plan to create multiple centres to bring down pressure on the core city area. Each centre will be a self contained zone having employment hubs and higher order social facilities.

The CEPT University, Ahmedabad, which prepared the Master Plan has taken into account the population and employment projections, proposed land use distribution and land requirements, environmental suitability and land potential analysis. In formulating the concept plan certain principles were adopted as guiding factors. For instance the planners have paid attention to settlement hierarchy, rural urban continuum, transit-oriented development, delimitation of urban services, urban agriculture, provision of social amenities.

For the first time climate change concerns find a mention in the Master Plan. Broad ranging strategies are recommended for promotion of clean energy and conservation. The extended region will not only not contribute to global warming but ensure that the infrastructure, facilities and services planned are ready to adapt to the projected impacts of climate change.

These concerns are amply reflected in the Master Plan's proposals with regard to land use and their spatial distribution like recreational, lung, open spaces, use of natural resources and clean energy, efficient buildings and environment friendly transportation choices. It will be development in harmony with the environment.

The plan suggests contiguous urban areas to serve different scales of population. Of course Hyderabad will act as the primary nucleus to other sub nuclei centres. The core city with 60 lakh population will serve as main central business district while Shamshabad (airport), Cyberabad, Jawaharnagar and Patancheru (25 lakh) will serve HMR urban population as sub city level centres. The plan identifies several urban growth pockets in the extended area of HUDA along the major highways. The future growth pockets, according to analysis, are along the linear corridors.

As far as road network is concerned, the Master Plan proposes a road hierarchy of 45 mts at regional level and 60 mts, 45, 30 and 18 mts of width at growth pocket level. Two loop roads are proposed inside the existing ORR and one peripheral ring road proposed in the extended HUDA area to provide connectivity to the proposed contiguous urban pockets and urban centres. The plan also deals extensively with the water situation estimating the demand separately for both urban and rural areas. The projected water demand is 449 mld for 2021 and 878 mld for 2031. Presently the extended area of HUDA lacks in both quantity and quality water supply.

Facebook to launch India operations in two months

Quote:
Social networking site Facebook is all set to launch its India operations from Hyderabad in less than two months.

The company?s proposal to set up a unit in Raheja Mindspace SEZ here was approved by the Union Government yesterday, said a senior official of the state Information Technology Department today.

"The company is aggressively hiring people. Initially, they will be operating from an incubation centre in the SEZ," the official told PTI.

Quote:
The Union Government accorded sanction for five IT companies to set up their offices in an area of 3.91 lakh sq. ft in different IT SEZs in the Sate. The other prominent MNCs include Accenture, and Invesco(expansion).

The IT companies began their annual recruitment and hiring plans. Further, she said that the recession did not have any impact on the creation and filling of office space in IT SEZs by the infrastructure developers. In fact during the recent past, infrastructure providers like Raheja and Divyasree, closed space booking deals of more than 32 lakh sq. ft of office space with renowned IT companies.

As many as five IT companies have been accorded permission to set up their offices in a total area of 3.91 lakh sq ft in different IT SEZs across the state.

HMDA draft plan envisages 50% land for greenery
Source:http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...ow/6103986.cms
HYDERABAD: Green activists will certainly plump for the new draft master plan. Nearly 50 per cent of land in the extended area of Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) can't be used for any development. In other words, it cannot be exploited for residential, industrial or entertainment purpose.

Catchment areas of Himayatsagar and Osmansagar lakes, and parcels of land in defence localities will also fall under this conservative zone.

Of 4848.40 square kilometres open area, 2314.05 sq kilometres can't be developed as it has water bodies, defence land and mangroves. No construction will be permitted within a buffer of 30 metres surrounding the water bodies as per the government orders. A GO, no 111, was issued in this regard by the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department 10 years ago banning development in the bio-conservation zone, especially in catchment areas of both Himayatsagar and Osmansagar lakes. Similar is the case with defence zone for security reasons. Over 100 villages will fall under this restricted zone.

Another 12 per cent area is underdeveloped. The rest 40 per cent of the vacant land can be used for development. The HMDA has prepared a draft master plan for an extended area of total 4,920 square kms.

The state government had merged some areas in surrounding four districts--Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar, Medak and Nalgonda-- into the erstwhile Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) to form Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority in 2008. For example, while Chevella, Shabad and Kandukur mandals of R R district were brought under HMDA, a part of Shankerpally, Shamshabad, Maheshwaram, Ibrahimpatnam, Medchal and Shamirpet mandals were merged in the HMDA.

Of the total available open land for contiguous development, which is 834 sq kms, 42 per cent of land has been earmarked for residential usage, five per cent for commercial, 11 per cent for manufacturing, 13 per cent for public-semi public, 12 per cent for open space zone/recreation and 16 per cent for transport and communication.

Giving top priority to transport, the officials have proposed a 45-metre width peripheral ring road in the extended areas to connect the contiguous urban pockets. As national highways pass through the extended HMDA, proposals have been made to have bus rapid transport system.

With railways asking for land, several locations have been identified for new passenger terminals, including Shamshabad, Medchal, near Hi-Tec City railway station and Moula Ali station. Each of these terminals would have around 300 acres of land.

In addition, the land has also been earmarked for cargo terminals at Timmapur between Nadergul and Vikarabad, and between Bibinagar and Bhongir.

MJ Market clock ticks from today

Source:http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/C...ow/6099848.cms

HYDERABAD: The 75-year-old heritage structure Moazam Jahi (MJ) market will be renovated by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) at a cost of Rs 1.6 crore. The antique clock on the structure, which had stopped functioning a decade ago, will start ticking from Monday, signalling the start of the renovation work which will complete by this year-end.

Clocks on four sides of the heritage market building had become defunct and the repairs were not done by the GHMC despite several organisations and individuals bringing the issue to the notice of the corporation. The corporation ignored the issue as it was earning meagre rents from shopkeepers of the market complex.

Now, GHMC has begun repairs after GHMC commissioner Sameer Sharma directed officials to get it repaired when he visited the market a few weeks ago. A sponsor had come forward to foot the Rs 2.5 lakh bill for the repairs.

Apart from repairing the clock, the GHMC has also got estimates prepared for renovation of the 75-year-old market. The market is in a pathetic condition with several seepage points, no sewer system and damaged walls with pollution. Also, the upkeep of the market premises is being neglected by the civic body.

A heritage consultant, engaged by the civic body, has prepared estimates for restoration of the market complex and pegged the cost of restoration at about Rs 1.6 crore.

"Restoration works will begin after taking administrative sanction from the standing committee and the state government," GHMC engineer-in-chief P Pandu Ranga Rao told TOI.

The MJ Market was constructed in 1935 by the last Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan, and it was named after his second son Moazam Jah. There are 171 shops in the market complex. While 119 shops are located in the main block, 52 shops are located in the northern side of the market.

As part of renovation, the corporation has proposed to provide a sewer system for the entire complex. With the lack of the drainage network, sewerage is overflowing and even customers hesistate to enter the complex due to the stink. Due to poor maintenance, the heritage building's roof has suffered damages. All seepage points would be plugged on the roof by redoing the flooring with a specially-made natural material used for heritage buildings.

Walls of the complex have also suffered damages due to pollution and frequent inundation in the monsoon. All walls would be cleaned with an acid made with special material under the supervision of the heritage consultant.

"Once the renovation is done, the GHMC will also increase rent collected from shopkeepers as is being done in other market complexes," a GHMC official said.

Hyderabad-based Indian Immunologicals Ltd (IIL), a subsidiary of National Dairy Development Board and the largest veterinary biological company in India, is setting up a new project for production of human and veterinary vaccines and veterinary formulations in Hyderabad at a an investment of Rs 150 crore. The company also has plans to launch new vaccines for bovines, sheep and pets besides foraying into to cattle feed segment. It is also in process of expanding its number of veterinary centres and clinics across India.

Currently the company has three manufacturing units, one in Ooty and two in Hyderabad. In an interaction with Business Standard, IIL Head-AH Marketing, N S N Bhargav said, “We are setting up a new facility to cater to the growing demand of human & veterinary vaccines and veterinary formulations. The project will be built on a 50-acre site, in Karkapatla – Bio-Tech Phase-III, Genome Valley, Hyderabad.


The new project will enhance the production capacity to meet the growing market demand for both domestic and regulated markets. It will also help in adding new products to the existing ones and would be functional by next year. Costing nearly Rs 150 crore, it will involve setting up manufacturing plants for human rabies vaccine, Japanese encephalitis vaccine, human bio therapeutics and veterinary vaccines as well as veterinary formulations.”

IIL is the largest vaccine manufacturer and exporter in the country and caters to nearly 80 per cent of Foot and Mouth vaccine requirement. It has ambitious plans of launching new vaccines for bovines, sheep and pets. The company launched four new vaccines for the domestic market namely Pentavalent vaccines for humans as well as vaccines for Japanese encephalitis, brucellosis and recombinant tick vaccine in animals.

The other new vaccines under development in IIL are – chikungunya vaccine, HPV, hepatitis-A vaccine for humans and infectious bovine rhinotracheities for animals. In the last financial year, the turnover of the company was Rs 272 crore. Driven by the new vaccine launch, the company hopes for a 30-35 per cent rise in its turnover to Rs 400 crore in the FY’11.

Bhargav also mentioned the company had plans to increase the number of Raksha Veterinary centres- a string of veterinary health care centres started by IIL in Western UP, Rajasthan, Gujarat and AP on a pilot scale, which offers quality veterinary healthcare services at affordable cost to livestock owners. Nearly 200 such centres are currently in operation and it has plans to scale it up to 1,000 in 2-3 years.

Commenting on new vaccines, he added, “Brucellosis is affecting bovine population across the country, especially north India and has not received desired attention so far. Approximately 5 per cent of the animals in India (total cattle population in India is about 500 million) are affected by this gruesome disease.

HMDA draft plan envisages 50% land for greenery

source : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...ow/6103986.cms

Green activists will certainly plump for the new draft master plan. Nearly 50 per cent of land in the extended area of Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) can't be used for any development. In other words, it cannot be exploited for residential, industrial or entertainment purpose.

Catchment areas of Himayatsagar and Osmansagar lakes, and parcels of land in defence localities will also fall under this conservative zone.

Of 4848.40 square kilometres open area, 2314.05 sq kilometres can't be developed as it has water bodies, defence land and mangroves. No construction will be permitted within a buffer of 30 metres surrounding the water bodies as per the government orders. A GO, no 111, was issued in this regard by the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department 10 years ago banning development in the bio-conservation zone, especially in catchment areas of both Himayatsagar and Osmansagar lakes. Similar is the case with defence zone for security reasons. Over 100 villages will fall under this restricted zone.

Another 12 per cent area is underdeveloped. The rest 40 per cent of the vacant land can be used for development. The HMDA has prepared a draft master plan for an extended area of total 4,920 square kms.

The state government had merged some areas in surrounding four districts--Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar, Medak and Nalgonda-- into the erstwhile Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) to form Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority in 2008. For example, while Chevella, Shabad and Kandukur mandals of R R district were brought under HMDA, a part of Shankerpally, Shamshabad, Maheshwaram, Ibrahimpatnam, Medchal and Shamirpet mandals were merged in the HMDA.

Of the total available open land for contiguous development, which is 834 sq kms, 42 per cent of land has been earmarked for residential usage, five per cent for commercial, 11 per cent for manufacturing, 13 per cent for public-semi public, 12 per cent for open space zone/recreation and 16 per cent for transport and communication.

Giving top priority to transport, the officials have proposed a 45-metre width peripheral ring road in the extended areas to connect the contiguous urban pockets . As national highways pass through the extended HMDA, proposals have been made to have bus rapid transport system.

With railways asking for land, several locations have been identified for new passenger terminals, including Shamshabad, Medchal, near Hi-Tec City railway station and Moula Ali station. Each of these terminals would have around 300 acres of land.

In addition, the land has also been earmarked for cargo terminals at Timmapur between Nadergul and Vikarabad, and between Bibinagar and Bhongir.

Cyber forensic unit in Hyderabad

Our Bureau
Hyderabad, June 28

Truth Labs, a non-profit organisation engaged in providing assistance to the police on crime investigation, has launched a cyber forensic unit, a first of its kind facility, in Hyderabad.

The unit will be providing assistance to problems such as computer crimes, threatening e-mails, lottery scams, money circulation schemes, false employment offers and false merchandise.

India has four forensic science laboratories owned by the Centre, apart from 25 State Government-owned units.

During the last two and half years of operations, Truth Labs has so far received about 1,500 cases, a bulk of it (800) pertaining to questioned documents, 150 fingerprint examination and 100 for polygraph examination. It has a unit in Delhi, with plans to set up similar units in Chennai and Bangalore this year.

“We are also planning to introduce certified courses on cyber security and cyber investigation, apart from launching training facilities,” according to Dr P.C. Gandhi, Founder of the company.

“We get at least 50 calls per day,” he added.

Several banks, including ICICI and Axis, are using its services to verify documents before sanctioning loans.

The forensic unit was inaugurated by Mr B. Sambamurthy, Director and Chief Executive Officer of the RBI's Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology, who pointed out that with growth in technology, cyber crimes were bound to increase in the years to come.

In the light of this, India needs more such cyber forensic units.

Model N to invest $25 mn in Hyderabad facility

Source:http://www.business-standard.com/ind...cility/399813/

BS Reporter / Chennai/ Hyderabad June 30, 2010, 0:58 IST
Model N Inc, a Silicon Valley-based revenue management solutions provider, will be investing $25 million (approximately Rs 117 crore) in its India operations at Hyderabad over the next three years, according to Zack Rinat, its founder and chief executive officer.

Announcing the launch of its Hyderabad centre on Tuesday, the company’s third with the other two located at Redwood Shores in the US and London, Rinat said the centre at present housed 105 professionals, which would be scaled up to 250 by the end of September 2011. The privately-held company follows the October-September financial year.

“Our decision to establish our Asia headquarters in Andhra Pradesh was largely driven by chief minister K Rosaiah’s vision for the region to become a hub for the pharmaceutical and high-tech industries,” he added.
The Hyderabad centre will be engaged in product development, professional services, application support, product management, quality assurance, customer support and documentation, with primary focus on the pharmaceutical, life sciences and high-tech marketplace.

Model N currently has a revenue management suite comprising 14 applications, and has over 40,000 end users in the high-tech space. Talking about revenue management, Rinat said for every $1 billion of revenues, companies leave anywhere between $40 million and $120 million on the table.

“India is projected to be the 10th largest pharmaceutical market by 2015, and is set to be positioned among the top five markets with a $20-billion size in absolute growth terms by then,” he said, adding that the company was expecting the Asia-Pacific region to contribute 20 per cent to its global revenues over a period of time
