Nagpur, Oct 22 (UNI) The Mumbai-based Karrox Technologies Ltd, which provides specialised computer training and placement services, has planned to open 25 new centres in Maharashtra over the next two years.
Speaking to newsmen here today, General Manager Sanjay Kumar Naidu said that the new centres would include eight to ten in Vidarbha.
This was to ensure that enough trained hands were available in the region, when the demand for information technology (IT) professionals increased after the completion of the ambitious MIHAN (Multi-modal International Air Passenger and Cargo Hub at Nagpur) project in the city, he said.
At a rough estimate, Nagpur alone would need about 1.2 lakh IT professionals over the next four years, Mr Naidu said. In fact, nearly 25 per cent of all IT jobs would be based out of Nagpur once the MIHAN project was completed, he also said.
Karrox opened a new centre here yesterday, its second in the city, Mr Naidu said adding that two more would be opened in Nashik during Diwali.
The company has 55 centres in India, including 18 in Maharashtra, besides 12 centres overseas, the General Manager said. It provides certification directly from parent companies like Microsoft, Sun and Java, he added.
