State shifts IT focus to smaller cities


Upbeat over the prospects of the IT sector seeing a revival in the State shortly, the State Information Technology Minister Poongothai Aaladi Aruna, indicated a shift in policy to develop facilities in smaller cities, towns and villages.


An ‘Empower IT’ campaign is also being planned to augment IT manpower by inspiring confidence among students from Tier-2 cities, she said, tabling the policy note for her ministry in the Assembly.

During discussions on her ministry’s demands for grants, Aruna said the IT industry was recovering from recession.

Quoting Karl Marx, Aruna said, “There are four phases in a business cycle. Now everyone says it is recession but Tamil Nadu’s IT exports have grown at 29 per cent, a rate higher than the national average of 12 per cent.” Outlining the upcoming IT park projects, Aruna said: “The Coimbatore IT park will provide employment to 25,000 people directly and 75,000 indirectly.” She said 14 foreign companies have expressed interest in the last one week alone to set up their facilities in the Tier-2 cities. Eight companies have expressed interest in Tiruchy, three in Madurai, two in Salem and one in Tirunelveli.

The expected private investment in these cities would be around Rs.970 crore and the government- owned ELCOT’s investment would be Rs.180 crore. When completed, these investments are expected to provide employment to 2.8 lakh people directly and 4 lakh indirectly.

“Only our chief minister has shown the world that IT sector need not be limited to big cities and can be extended to even villages,” Aruna said.

She cited the example of a pilot project under the ‘village business centres’ scheme, wherein two such centres have been set up in Uthankarai and Sanachattiram villages of Krishnagiri district.

The above report says the exports from Tier II cities is only 1.1%

Quote:
STPI has also set up incubation centers near the National Institute of Technology, Trichy and Kumaraguru college of engineering at Coimbatore. It is also setting up finishing schools near its units to coach fresh graduates.

But, the present contribution of STP units in tier II cities to the total exports is negligible at 1.1%. There are 147 STP units housed in 3 tier II cities. Geographical distribution of IT exports remained unchanged from last year, with USA forming the major chunk followed by UK, and Japan, Europe, and Asia occupying minor pieces of the pie.

No impact of slowdown on SEZ occupancy: State IT Minister

Image

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 work was progressing in the Tiruchi, Madurai, and Tirunelveli SEZs.

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.
