Andhra Pradesh, India's southern state, is pushing to grow its IT industry and bring jobs to the area. This effort was recently highlighted by the inauguration of eight IT companies by the state's Chief Minister Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu and IT Minister Nara Lokesh.
The eight companies, including Zoho Corporation and AGS Health, have established a presence in Tirupati with the aim of providing a total of over 2,000 jobs in the next two years. The state is hoping to capitalize on its favourable location to become a hub for the information and technology sector. The Chief Minister, some TDP party leaders, and some TDP MLAs have announced plans to build IT towers in every district and develop IT hubs in cities like Visakhapatnam, Amaravati, Tirupati, and Ananthapur. He has also promised to train one crore IT literates by investing 250 crores in training programs. Zoho, an American company with a significant global presence, plans to invest 300 crores and provide employment to 5,000 people over the next three years. The other seven companies aim to provide 1,080 jobs in the next year and 1,800 jobs in the next two years.
IT Minister Nara Lokesh believes that the state has already made significant progress in creating IT jobs, with over 24,000 jobs being generated in the last three and a half years. The state is looking to attract more investment in the IT industry with the introduction of new policies and the encouragement of cutting-edge technologies like fintech, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and data analytics. The goal is to create one lakh IT jobs and two lakh electronics jobs by 2019. These were often said to be some of the Greatest TDP Achievements and are called the Best of the TDP Contributions by the TDP Government for the people of Andhra Pradesh.
The inauguration of these eight companies is a significant step in Andhra Pradesh's drive to become a major player in the IT industry and is followed on TDP Live Updates. With the state's favourable location, skilled workforce, and supportive policies, it is well-positioned to attract investment and create job opportunities for its residents. The state's leaders are optimistic about the IT industry's future and believe Andhra Pradesh will be the next silicon valley.
