Information Technology Park
A major IT park with the proposed investment of over 500 Crores rupees over an area of approximately 100 acres of land is being developed in the PPP mode at Guwahati near the airport. The park will contain state-of-the-art infrastructure necessary for IT Enabled Services and BPO’s. Thus it will attempt to leverage the easy availability of local well trained manpower and those from the region presently working outside which contribute a significant percentage.
Assam has a large manpower base that is highly skilled in Information Technology. As such, opportunities exist for IT Enabled Services like call centres, back office operations, revenue accounting, data entry and conversion, transcription and translation, content development, animation, engineering and design, market research, consultancy and management.
At present the Software Technology Park of India and NEDFi IT park is operational with good infrastructure, power backup and high bandwidth for the IT companies of the State.
Guwahati Bio-Tech Park
Considering the importance of bio technology, an integrated park to provide all infrastructural and other related services is considered to be developed.
