Maharashtra Information Technology is making efforts to develop the Information Technology sector for setting up projects in Nagpur, Amaravati, Latur and Satara, among others in order to reduce the burden of job-hunting in Pune and Mumbai said Minister of State for Information Technology and Home Satej Patil in a meeting.
Minister of State for Information Technology and Home Satej Patil participated “Engage Maharashtra: Reboot, Reform, Resurge” Roundtable Conference organized by Indian Merchant Chamber (IMC) of Commerce and Industry. He presented the major initiatives and efforts taken by the Maharashtra IT Department to reshape the governance throughout the state.
During the meeting he shared his thoughts on the vision to make Maharashtra the top destination for IT worldwide. “Mumbai and Pune have been leading in the IT sector not just in the State but also in the country. They are, however, saturated due to massive inter-State and inter-city migration and catering to the job demands of lakhs of people in Maharashtra and India. We now want to take this progress to tier 2 and 3 cities like Nagpur, Satara, Amaravati, Latur, Nanded and others by giving incentives to industries there. Industries will be helped with various facilities like electricity and others through a separate IT policy. We have come out with a request for proposal (RFP) model to facilitate the sector with simplified procurement process,” Patil said.
