TN govt has alloted Rs. 30 Crore for the Coimbatore IT park. It is being inaugurated by CM on 24th Feb. Adikkal Naatu Vizha will happen then. The current layout for the IT park near Coimbatore Medical College in Avinashi Road is about27 acres and will be occupied by Wipro, TCS and Tidel . As other companies are showing interest in moving, ELCOT is moving to get more land for construction ( 35 acres more) . I am not sure that the additional facility WIPRO was talking about a couple of weeks ago falls into this expansion plan. There is a whole lot of confusion in this matter. But the ELCOT is promoting the IT parks in Tier II cities in a big way by putting up ads in leading Newspapers. The basic infrastructure for the facility will be ready and submitted for evaluation in a day or two after the Adikkal Naatu Vizha .
If they only do something to control the speculation hiking the land prices, it will be great.
