The current economic slowdown has not affected the occupancy of government-promoted IT Special Economic Zones (SEZ) in the State, said Poongothai Aladi Aruna, Tamil Nadu IT Minister, on Monday.

Talking to presspersons here, after a review meeting with the officials of the Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT), Dr. Poongothai said recruiting had been affected, but there were no job cuts in the IT industry.

While a cohesive national policy was required, Tamil Nadu was still well-placed as an IT destination, the Minister said.

She added that the IT SEZs in Chennai and Coimbatore would be ready by this December, and that was work progressing in the Tiruchi, Madurai, and Tirunelveli SEZs.

P.W.C.Davidar, IT secretary, said the government had decided to introduce electronic file processing in all departments soon. The software being created by ELCOT for the Commercial Taxes department was almost complete and would be released in July, he said.

Santhosh Babu, managing director, ELCOT, said the pilot project to provide handheld devices in ration shops for billing had been successful. Currently, 209 handheld devices were being used and this would be increased to over 1,000 in the coming month, he said.

Mr. Babu said ELCOT had recorded a profit of Rs. 17.77 crore in 2008-2009 as against a profit of Rs. 13.25 crore in 2007-2008.

Chandrasekaran, 45, was appointed COO of TCS 21 months ago and was also promoted as Executive Director. A key member of the TCS corporate strategy group, he was responsible for the formulation and execution of the company's global strategy, says the TCS website.

He has been at helm of several key strategic transitions in TCS including expanding its business portfolio to include BPO, Infrastructure and Consulting services. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and an active member of Computer Society of India and the British Computer Society.

In April 2006, he was named by Consulting Magazine in the USA as one of the top 25 most influential consultants in the world.

ELCOT SEZ plans on track

Undeterred by the global economic meltdown, the Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT) is likely to go-ahead with the development of SEZs planned at seven Tier II cities across the state. ELCOT is planning to invest Rs 15 crore in each IT park to create a 50,000 sq ft facility.

The SEZs are expected to come up in cities including Madurai, Trichy, Tirunelveli, Salem and Hosur which will be rented or leased to software companies.

Six companies have shown interest in setting up facilities in Gangaikondan at Tirunelveli while nine companies have applied for the Trichy SEZ.

Meanwhile, the SEZ sites have been notified for Salem and Hosur and the government has allotted land, as told to ProjectsToday. Tendering process is underway and three companies have evinced interest in these projects. Tenders are likely to be awarded in two months time.

Meltdown, Satyam fiasco have not hit IT parks

Many fiirms have started developing their plots

Land allotment proposal for Tiruchi park forwarded to the government


Neither the global meltdown nor the Satyam fiasco has adversely impacted the development of the IT parks-cum-special economic zones in Tier II cities. “In fact, the response to these projects has not diminished a bit,” says Santhosh Babu, Managing Director, Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu, and Director of e-Governance.

Talking to reporters after inspecting the IT park site here on Tuesday, Mr. Babu allayed the fears about the prospects of these parks. Many players, including big companies, had agreed to set up shop and started developing their plots. “After all, the overhead expenditure for the cash-strapped industry is lesser [in Tier II cities] than in metros like Chennai.”

The development of the Sholinganallur park had almost been completed, and the Coimbatore park would be completed by December, he said. Land had been handed over at Elanthakulam and Vadapalanchi in Madurai. While the land allotment proposal for the Tiruchi park had been forwarded to the government, a plan for Salem would be prepared shortly. The Salem park would be developed in two phases: the first on 45 acres in the total area of 164 acres, for which the expression of interest would be called for; and the rest would be improved in Phase II.

Asked whether the ‘window period’ for the developers would be extended in view of the recession, Mr. Santosh Babu said the Chief Minister alone could take a decision.

On the legal dispute with Burn Standard, a public sector unit, over land allotment, he said Collector J. Chandrakumar had resolved it by allotting 120 acres to the company for mining. The site earmarked for the Salem park had been leased out to the company.

“To monitor and expedite the IT projects in Tier II cities, steering committees have been formed, ” he said.

As for e-governance, Mr. Santosh Babu said 208 locations had been identified for the Tamil Nadu State Wide Area Network, which would connect government offices. The work was under way to establish 800 common service centres, through which the people could access go welfare aids and documents.

Nice article , though was published sometime back but worth reading

Tier-two cities in Tamil Nadu are fast emerging as new IT destinations, with a number of projects aimed at attracting IT investment nearing completion in cities like Madurai, Coimbatore and Trichy.

Initiatives have already been taken up to set up an information technology park in Coimbatore on the lines of Chennai's Tidal Park. Similarly, the Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu is setting up two IT parks in Madurai and Trichy, which are expected to get the status of special economic zones.

In Trichy, about 135 acres of government land had been transferred to Elcot for the purpose of establishing IT parks. Sources in Elcot told Business Standard that the corporation had acquired 135.04 acres at Navalpattu on the outskirts of the city, where it would set up an IT park soon.

The government to declaredthe park as a special economic zone for IT and IT-enabled services. Elcot plans to construct a built-up area of about one million square feet.

Navalpattu, situated on the Trichy-Pudukkottai highway, was chosen for the project considering its proximity to the Trichy International Airport. Elcot is looking at the possibility of acquiring more land near the site for future expansion.

With the completion of the ongoing expansion and modernisation of the airport and the upgradation of Trichy-Pudukkottai highway, the officials expect that the park will be able to attract huge investments.

Moreover, the rich talent pool in the city, which churns out not less than 10,000 graduates in the software and hardware sectors every year, is also expected to attract big firms.

The Trichy City Corporation is also making all efforts to utilise the Centre's Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns as well as the Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme. Under the UIDS programme, the Centre would provide 80 per cent of the project cost as grants, while the state and city corporations would contribute 10 per cent each.
