Indore, Jan 20: For setting up a special economic zone (SEZ), the Madhya Pradesh government on Thursday has declared that it will provide 130 acres of land instead of 100 acres to IT giant Infosys.

"We had shown Infosys 130 acre in Indore's super corridor. But during the meeting of a Group of Ministers in December last year, it was proposed to allot only 100 acre to the company. We accept it was a technical mistake," said Kailash Vijayvargiya, state Information Technology Minister.

Last month, the state government had granted 100 acres to Infosys and TCS.

"We are in talks with the Madhya Pradesh government, but we'll not be able to share any information till we get an official communication from them," said an Infosys spokesperson.

The rate for the allotted land was Rs 20 lakh per acre. Rahul Khullar, Commerce Secretary heading the board of approval will declare its decision on Jan 24.

"We are hopeful that after the Centre's approval, Infosys and TCS will start work on their projects by April," said Vijayvargiya.
