Tiruchirapalli, Jun 17:The state-owned Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT), which is establishing an IT Park at suburb Navalpattu in a 147-acre land, is all set for allotting land to the IT majors and BPOs. ELCOT sources said Sutherland Global Services and Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) were expected to start their operations here.
