Vibrant Gujarat

New Update

With the Indian IT-BPO industry growing by leaps and bounds,

expected to cross the $60 bn mark in exports by 2010, India has now emerged as

the most preferred outsourcing destination. With the growth, there is now an

urgent need to develop new IT-BPO cities and tap the hitherto unused talent pool

of knowledge workers.


The government of Gujarat along with Nasscom has been working

towards the creation of a conducive environment for the IT and BPO companies in

the state. Integrated IT policy, state-of-the-art infrastructure development and

a strong focus towards human capital development are some of the steps taken by

the government. The government with support from Nasscom has conceptualized IT

Summit 2006 to enable industry leaders and entrepreneurs to arrive at a common


"Gujarat has a robust

economy, encompassing both industry and service. With its natural and

man-made advantages, it is climbing the ladder of prosperity, benefiting

people in all walks of life. Hence it makes strong business sense to be in

Minister, Gujarat

The summit would enable the participants and potential investors

to discuss reasons to invest in Gujarat and how the Gujarat government can

partner with the industry. The event with presentations and panel discussions

will provide a platform to identify and unravel opportunities in the IT sector

in the State.


Gujarat Government's commitment to promote socio-economic and

industrial development is clear from the fact that the State has emerged as

India's most preferred destination for investments as per the latest figures

of the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). Gujarat has also

clocked one of the highest GDP growths amongst Indian states and is working

towards replicating its success across industries in the IT domain.

The state provides ideal environment for the IT and BPO industry

to scale new heights. Drivers include a business friendly atmosphere as well as

relatively lower costs of real estate and manpower. HR advantages stem from high

education standards, better productivity and the country's lowest BPO

attrition rate. Besides, it also scores pretty high on the infrastructure front-with

nearly 100% power and connectivity uptime. All this translates into shorter lead

and delivery time for projects. No wonder, more than 50 BPO outfits are reaping

the benefits of starting operations here.
