Establishment of Software Technology Park
The pace of development of Software Industries in the country has achieved International competitiveness. Computerization has developed to a significant extent due to the mass scale switch over to Computerization in Banking services, Railway, Manufacturing Industries, Trade, Transport, Insurance, Financial Services, Public Enterprises and Private/Govt. sectors also. It is significant from export point of view; presently its growth rate is 60%. Different State Governments are laying great emphasis on the development of the Software Industries. In view of its bright prospects, establishment of Software Technology Parks at suitable locations has been planned.
In the proposed software park, Infrastructure facilities like marketing, office space, power supply communication link etc. will be provided to the small and medium software manufacturers and exporters.
Therefore, a sum of Rs.500.00 lakh, as state share has been proposed in the annual plan of 2003-2004.
