New Industrial Policy: UT eyes Industrial Area as next IT hub but Rajiv Gandhi IT park yet to tap full potential
The new industrial policy announced recently by the UT Administration has laid emphasis on making the Industrial Area as next Information Technology hub. However, the Rajiv Gandhi Chandigarh Technology Park (RGCTP), which was set up about a decade ago to make the city as next big IT destination, is yet to tap its full potential.
Accorded the SEZ status in 2007, about 39 acre prime land in phase 2 of the IT park has remained un-utilised due to the administration’s failure to allot land to interested companies.
Tech Mahindra’s pending case of additional allotment of 5 acres of land in phase 2 is an example of sluggish response of the local administration towards the IT industry.
