IT Industry in Orissa

IT and ITeS sector is growing with a great pace in India. Even though Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Noida and Gudgaon are leading the race, the other parts of India are also seeing some IT activities . The infrastructure saturation of Bangalore and the high cost in the above cities has made the IT companies to look elsewhere.
The growth of IT industry in Orissa has been good for the last 2 fiscal years. While the state has attracted 14 IT companies in the fiscal year 2005-06, it has succeeded in getting 19 this year ie 2006-07. The IT export has a growth of 58% in the 2006-07 fiscal year resulting in good revenue to the state. Hence the state is trying his best to provide good support to the companies.
The process of land allocation is going on for Wipro Training Center(planned for a capacity of 30,000), Aricent Training Center (capacity of 1,500) and another training center to be setup by Anil-Dhirubhai Group. The state is also planning to provide housing facilities to the IT professionals by developing Residential Complexes near Infocity I. While the work for developing Indian Institute of Information Science has been started, the state is also going to ask the Center for setting an IIIT(Indian Institute of Information Technology) in the state.
