Hyderabad: Another IT park in Telangana at Karimnagar is ready for inauguration. The new centre, which will be opened by state IT minister KT Rama Rao on December 30, will generate over 3,000 jobs for the local youth. It has come up at a cost of Rs 34 crore.
The information technology park offers about 62,000 sqft space with facilitating companies to work in a plug-and-play mode. It can house about 1,200 employees. The other facilities include a learning centre, AC and non-AC canteens on the ground floor. As many as 11 tech firms have already signed an MoU with the state government to establish their units in the tower. Several companies have evinced interest in setting up units at Karimnagar IT Park, which will be the second-biggest such tower after Hyderabad, said an official.
BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar visited the premises on Sunday and instructed officials and contractors to complete all pending works as early as possible.
As part of the vision of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to spread the IT revolution across the Telangana, several IT Parks are coming up in areas like Karimnagar and Warangal. Minister KTR has prepared a plan to develop the IT sector outside Hyderabad and has assured that every district headquarter will get an IT tower.
Minister Kamalakar said that about 80 posts would be filled with local youth, and over 3,000 unemployed youth would get jobs in the IT Park. The minister thanked the CM and KTR for sanctioning the tower for Karimnagar. KTR had laid its foundation stone on January 8, 2018.
