Infosys to set up new software development center in Kolkata

Infosys to set up new software development center in Kolkata

IT services giant Infosys will start construction of a proposed software development center in the metropolis by July 2021, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee stated. The project will generate massive employment in the IT sector, she said after a cabinet meeting at the state secretariat.In 2010, the West Bengal government had allotted 50 acres of land in the city's neighboring Rajarhat area to the company.

"We had written to Infosys to set up a software development centre here for which we will be giving them land. The company has agreed to our proposal. Infosys will be submitting the final approved sanctioned plan by December 20,"MamataBanerjee said. The state cabinet on Tuesday also sanctioned 100-acre land to 20 new IT companies at the Newtown Silicon Valley, she said. The CM said the cabinet gave its nod to Wipro to set up another IT sector at the Silicon Valley.

The chief minister said India's second largest IT services company will start construction of the development center by July next year, and aim to complete it within 24 months. Infosys had earlier proposed to set up an IT/ITeS special economic zone (SEZ) over an area of 20.14 hectares in South 24 Parganas.
