Kochi Infopark phase-II to create 1.1 lakh jobs

Quote:
KOCHI: The phase-II development of Infopark, Kochi, will create 1.1 lakh job opportunities, Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan said.


He told reporters on Saturday, during his visit to Infopark to assess the progress of various developmental activities, that the phase-II development would be carried out at a cost of Rs 2,500 crore.

The Chief Minister said that as part of the phase-II development, a global tender would be invited within three months.

"The District Collector will ensure that the arrangements for the infrastructure development are completed in a time-bound manner," the Chief Minister said.

Of the Rs 2,500 crore required for the development project, the State Government will provide Rs 475 crore as government support fund and internally generated fund within three years. Around 8 million square feet of built-in space will be constructed in 160 acres as part of the phase-II development.

"The acquisition for 53 acres of land for the development has been completed, and the remaining acquisition will be completed soon. The first phase of Infopark has so far achieved an export growth of 87 percent.

Work on `Athulya', the new IT complex at Inforpark, will be completed by May 2010," the Chief Minister said.

Fisheries Minister S Sarma, IT Principal Secretary Ajaya Kumar, District Collector M Beena and Infopark CEO Sidhartha Bhatacharya were present.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan said the government would decide whether to continue working with Tecom or not only after receiving Tecom's confirmation to continue with the project.

Answering queries, the Chief Minister said a decision in this regard would be taken on the basis of Tecom's reply. "It was in front of us that the Tecom CEO told reporters that the company had just downsized its office at Vazhakkala and it had not vacated the office.

But, the very next day K Babu MLA submitted documents from the registration office at Thrikkakara in the Assembly disproving Tecom's claims," Fisheries Minister and Smart City chairman S Sarma said.

Sharjah's commerce body to open IT centre at Infopark

Technology innovation centre to be opened by early next month

The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, an organisation backed by the governing authority of the Emirate of Sharjah, will open a technology innovation centre at Infopark, Kochi. The centre could be opened by the end of this month or next month, according to official sources.

The centre is intended to expand the scope of IT operations of various companies based in Sharjah. It will be a mutually beneficial arrangement for Sharjah-based companies as well as IT companies in Kerala, according to Ajay Kumar, Principal Secretary, Information Technology Department, Kerala. He told The Hindu that the Kerala IT department will provide the facilities at the centre. The centre was proposed to be opened during the first week of April, but had to be postponed consequent upon the demise of a member of the Royal family of the emirate.

The significance of the opening of the centre lies in the fact that it could give way to a quantum jump in the volume of bilateral business. There are hundreds of companies in Sharjah which could provide orders for executing the IT enabled services to the Kerala based IT companies. The initiative could further strengthen the business transactions. Kerala could benefit from work orders for e-governance projects from many of the companies in the emirate and nearby areas, he said.

Sharjah is among the top group of emirates of the United Arab Emirates in terms of financial capacity and industrial expansion. The Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, an officially backed facility for setting up industrial units, has attracted over 400 Indian companies there during the past few years.

The Free Zone Authority is keen on expanding relationship with Kerala-based companies, its Director General Rashid Al Leem said.

“The signing of a memorandum of understanding for setting up an innovation centre between Kerala government and Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry underlines this fact,” Mr.Rashid, who was in Kochi on Wednesday, told The Hindu.

“Though economic slowdown had affected the emirate, it is fast recovering from the situation and new opportunities are emerging; but it is not possible to mention a specific point of time for total recovery”, he said.

The MOU for setting up the centre was signed by Siddhartha Bhattacharya, CEO of Infopark, and the representative of Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and industry four months ago at Sharjah. Confirming the move to launch the project, Mr.Bhattacharya told The Hindu that the centre would help value addition leading to business development.

The Sharjah-based companies would come in close contact with the Kerala-based companies. This could be mutually beneficial, he said.

Kochi likely to become a top IT services hub

Infopark has 100-odd firms with 10,000 staff

Infopark exports in the last three years was around Rs. 1,000 crore

Lack of skilled professionals the main impediment to growth

KOCHI: Infopark Chief Executive Officer Siddhartha Bhattacharya has said that Kochi would emerge as one of the top Information Technology hotspots in the country in the next five to ten years.

Talking at a road show on animation, gaming, and visual effects organised by the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) here on Friday, Mr. Bhattacharya said that infrastructure-wise Kochi had grown leaps and bounds over the years and now accounted for about five million sq.ft of built-up space in the IT sector with 100-odd companies employing about 10,000 employees.

Citing a recent report of NASSCOM, he said that both Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram featured in the list of challenger cities to capture the imagination of the IT sector in the next ten years.

Mr. Bhattacharya said that the total turnover of Infopark in terms of exports in the last three years was close to Rs. 1,000 crore.

Exports, the CEO said, were growing at a rate of 87 per cent.

Mr. Bhattacharya said that animation and gaming industry provided plenty of business and it was all about finding the right kind of talent. Earlier, in his inaugural address C.M. Dinesh Mani, MLA, said that with a smart IT Park like Infopark the State need not worry about the SmartCity Kochi project. Stating that companies were queuing up for space at the Infopark, he said that Infopark was far bigger than any SmartCity.

Mr. Mani said that Infopark should emerge as the champion of the State's IT sector and work in coordination with the State agencies.

The road show being organised in association with Kerala IT Mission and Image Infotainment Limited had a stopover at Kozhikode and Thrissur before coming to Kochi.

It would be held at Kottayam and Kollam in the next two days before concluding at Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

The show mainly targeted Plus Two students to create awareness about the career opportunities presented by the ever growing animation and gaming industry.

The Indian animation industry was set to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22 per cent and gaming industry at a CAGR of 49 per cent by 2012.

According to industry sources, shortage of skilled professionals was the biggest impediment to the growth of animation and gaming industry in the country.

Making a presentation on the growth prospects of the industry in India, K. Purushothaman, Regional Director of NASSCOM, said that the huge gap between what the industry wanted and what the aspiring candidates have to offer needs to be filled.

Better interaction between the industry and the existing training institutes was cited as one way of bridging the demand and supply gap of skilled professionals.

Namitha from the Mumbai office of the Academy Award winning studio Rhythm and Hues made a presentation on the various aspects of animation.

Students had an interaction session with her. Philip Thomas, Regional Head, Image Infotainment Limited, also made a presentation.
