Bangalore, Oct 30 (UNI) In its quest to become the numero uno IT destination in the country by 2010, Tamil Nadu has laid down a three-point agenda to provide congenial environment for IT and ITeS companies across the state, a senior official today said.

Tamil Nadu IT Secretary C Chandramouli told reporters here the three main areas which the state will focus to make the difference were superior infrastructure quality, human resources and business environment.

''We are very much focused on building Tamil Nadu as the most preferred IT and ITeS destination. We have already made big inroads into the sector with large Indian and MNCs setting up base in the state,'' he said.

Tamil Nadu was the only power surplus state in the county today, he claimed.

Additional electricity generation of 6,000 MW in three years will take care of the future power requirements of the industry, he said.

The state had attracted a total investment of Rs 15,000 crore in the ten months of the calender year in IT, electronics and automobile sectors, he claimed.

The initiatives taken by the government will pave way for investment across the state in the area of IT, ITeS, automobile makers and components, electronoic goods and real estate development, he said.

A sum of Rs 100 crore had also been allocated to ELCOT to carry out infrastructure development in the government promoted IT SEZs, he said.
