They will be setting up the unit in New Town and SEZ will not be given to them, she said. "The investment will lead to around 1,000 jobs," she said.

"The company (Infosys) has agreed to accept all other facilities offered by the state government. They will invest Rs. 100 crore here on a 50-acre land in Rajarhat," she said adding that there will be an employment opportunity of around 1,000 people there.

Infosys had earlier asked the Mamata Banerjee government SEZ status for their project or return of the Rs. 75 crore it had paid for land at Rajarhat. The Trinamool Congress government is against SEZ as a policy.

It may be recalled that that after coming to power for the second term, Banerjee had said it will be the priority of the state government to ensure more investment in Bengal.
