Chandigarh, Feb 6 (UNI) Haryana State Electronics Development Corporation (HARTRON) will construct three IT complexes in Gurgaon at an estimated cost of Rs 250 crore with state-of-the-art services on Design-Finance-Build-Operate-and-Transfer (DF BOT) model.
While stating this here today at a press conference, Haryana Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Electronics and Information Technology, Mr P K Chaudhery said these IT complexes, to be constructed over an area of about nine acres of land, will be located at Electronics City, Sector 18 and Udyog Vihar (Phase 1).
In the complexes, there wile be a wide range of options to cater to the specific requirements of clients, with design flexibility and a built up area of 7,00,000 sq ft (excluding basements). These would be integrated complexes with state-of-the-art services.
''It is expected that by 2010, Gurgaon would have potential to employ about four lakh people in Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) and other sectors and the state would attract an investment of about Rs two lakh crores,'' he said, adding that ''Gurgaon, has come up on the world map largely due to the IT industry. Simultaneously, other parts of the state, particularly the economic hub around Kundli-Manesar-Palwal and Panchkula, are being developed as IT corridors.'' He said IT exports from the state has increased phenomenally from Rs 400 crore in the year 1998-99 to around Rs 14,000 crore in 2006-2007.
Mr Chaudhery said pursuing its vision for all the citizens to be able to access government and private services from their own villages and towns, the Haryana government has implemented its major e-governance initiatives by establishing ''ADHAAR'', a State Wide Area Network (SWAN).
''The project is aimed at percolation of different e-governance initiatives as well as deployment of various innovative service delivery mechanisms down to the grassroot level. A robust interface in the form of e-Procurement between the state government and procurement agencies and suppliers is also being planned.'' ''With a view to empower its citizens through Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the state intends to set up a network of Common Service Centres (CSCs) across the state,'' Mr Chaudhery added.
