    Bangalore : The Karnataka government has given clearance to several major IT projects, including by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), which will set up four special economic zones (SEZs) across the state with an investment of Rs.11.5 billion ($247 million).

    A high-level clearance committee cleared the application of TCS, India's largest IT bellwether, at a meeting here late Monday, according to the Karnataka Udyog Mitra (KUM), the single-window agency for industrial promotion in the state,

    "In the IT/ITES (IT-enabled services) sector, TCS has been allowed to locate its SEZs at Devanahalli on the outskirts of Bangalore in 100 acres at Rs.5 billion; at Mysore in 50 acres at Rs.4.1 billion; Hubli-Dharwad in 50 acres at Rs.1.2 billion and Mangalore in 50 acres at Rs.1.2 billion. The four SEZ projects are expected to generate about 23,200 jobs," a KUM official told IANS.

In all, about 40 projects, involving an estimated investment of Rs.629 billion have been cleared by the committee, headed by Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy," the official said.

    "The 34 SEZs, to be located in an area of 4,496 hectares of land across the state at a combined investment of Rs.217 billion, are projected to create 568,000 jobs," the official pointed out.

  • 9800cr Devanhalli Bussiness park

  • Good job in hyping up Bangalore North real estate. TCS has a huge campus in Chennai for more then 25000 employees. Infosys has a huge campus planned in Sarjapur road. ORR in Bangalore has over 1L employees. Electronic city has more then 1L
    In comparison Devanhalli prices have factored in all the growth.

    Already Karntaka govt has said that there will be no water connections granted until end of 2011. Thousands of apartment constructions built in the last 3 years have yet to get water.
    There are power cuts galore in all areas of bangalore including the ORR stretch which houses Intel/Cisco and others.

    At this rate Devanahalli will get water and power supply in 2020 or beyond. It is meaningless to buy anything here until the basic infrastructure is put in place.

  • TCS seeks 100 acre in Bangalore to house new facility

    BANGALORE: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India’s largest IT services exporter, has approached the Karnataka government seeking 100 acre in Bangalore to build a new facility.

    A senior state government official said they are keen to provide the land to TCS near the new international airport at Devanahallli, on the outskirts of Bangalore city. When contacted regarding this development, a TCS spokesperson said: “No comments from our end”.

    The state government has been keen on developing a new IT hub in the northern part of Bangalore city near the international airport and quite a few IT services majors have already evinced interest in setting up their development facilities.

    Besides, the state government is planning to develop a dedicated aerospace zone near Devanahalli, which will involve both design and manufacturing. Along with these plans, moves are already afoot to set up an integrated township for the technology sector called the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) spread over 40 sq km or 12,000 acre in Devanahalli.

    ITIR is part of the Centre’s initiative to promote technology industry in the country. Under this, state government would ensure all the physical infrastructure and utilities while the Centre facilitates the development of national highways, airport and rail links

    The state government has already notified acquisition of 2,081 acre for ITIR and is in the process of selecting a developer for the project. As many as 58 IT companies have already approached the government seeking 917 acres to start their operations in ITIR. Some of these companies include Infosys, Wipro, Tejas Networks and Cognizant.

    Karnataka is the first state in the country to initialise the process of setting up ITIR. Being the largest contributor to IT services exports from the country, the Karnataka government is keen to maintain its dominance with 35% share.

  • ‘In-principle' approval for TCS new campus near Devanahalli airport

    Bangalore: A team of officials of the Tata Group, led by Tata Steel Vice-Chairman B. Muthuraman, met Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Tuesday to review several projects of the group in the State.

    V.P. Baligar, Principal Secretary, Industry and Commerce, described the meeting as “the first comprehensive review of projects of the Tata Group in the State since the Global Investors Meeting in June”.

    Mr. Baligar told The Hindu that the Government has given “in-principle approval” for Tata Consultancy Services' new campus near the international airport in Bangalore, which requires 100 acres of land. He said the campus would be “one of the biggest campuses of TCS in India”.

    Mr. Baligar said company officials expressed “happiness with the land acquisition process” for Tata Metaliks' three million-tonne steel plant at Haveri, involving an investment of Rs. 15,000 crore.

    The company signed a memorandum of understanding with the State Government for the project, which requires about 2,000 acres, during the Global Investors Meet. Tata Metaliks, a subsidiary of Tata Steel, is primarily a pig iron producer. Whether the company has tied up with iron ore suppliers, Mr. Baligar said, “The hearing for issuing the mining lease is going on and may conclude in a month or two.”

    Tata Consulting Engineers has also received “in-principle approval” for five acres of land for its project, Mr. Baligar said. He said the screening committee of the State High Level Clearance Committee would consider Tata Housing's proposals.

    Mr. Baligar said Roots Corporation Limited, a subsidiary of the Tata Group's flagship in the hospitality sector, The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), has sought land for projects in Hubli and Belgaum. The hotels will be under the Ginger brand.

    Mr. Baligar said the State Tourism Department “will identify land” for other projects of the company at Kabini, Hassan and Hampi.

    Mr. Baligar said discussions also focussed on projects that are being considered by Tata Realty, which has been shortlisted for the high speed rail link to the international airport in Bangalore. The company is also one of the bidders for the proposed mono rail project. The State Government has invited the company to bid for road projects on a build-operate-transfer basis (BOT), Mr. Baligar added.

    Tata Power, which has bid for the gas-based Bidadi power project, is also being considered for the super critical gas-based power project in Gulbarga district, Mr. Baligar said.

    Minister for Large and Medium Industries Murugesh. R. Nirani, Water Resources Minister Basavaraj Bommai and Chief Secretary S.V. Ranganath were among those present at the review.

  • Bearys Global Research Triangle,Whitefield

    The Bearys Global Research Triangle (BGRT) is dedicated to the invaluable contribution of business and information technology to the modern world. It is a place where great minds will meet, collaborate and develop breakthrough products and services for the next millennium.

    Knowledge is today our most precious commodity and its creation our most valued asset. To facilitate knowledge creation, it is vital that research institutions and industry are provided spaces to effectively interact and seamlessly share. Recognising an opportunity to create such an environment, The Bearys Group conceptualized BGRT in the proximity of ITPL at Whitefield, Bangalore, India.

    Built on a 21 acre triangular property, BGRT is a world-class, high technology research enclave, modeled on the much celebrated Research Triangle Park(RTP), North Carolina, USA. It comprises five spectacular research towers named after some of the most famous inventors and thinkers of our times: Edison, Einstein, Newton, Bell and C V Raman.

    In BGRT, The Bearys demonstrates its experience in real estate development; its expertise in building a world class R&D complex; and perhaps more significantly, its leadership in establishing India’s first Sustainable Green Building Research Park.

    BGRT has many firsts to its credit in India
