Moving towards transforming Uttar Pradesh into the IT hub of India, the State government has announced plans to build IT Parks across all divisions of the state. According to government officials, the move will not only increase investment in the state but will also generate new employment opportunities for the youth.
The construction work of IT parks in Agra, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, and Bareilly is already underway. Meanwhile, the development work of IT Parks has also started in Meerut, Prayagraj, and Kanpur divisions. In the next two years, preparations are being made to start IT Parks in all the divisions of the state. Along with this, there will also be a technology-rich space for companies. All types of facilities related to the needs of IT companies will be available in the IT Parks.
Experts feel that this step is likely to increase investment in the state. Under the IT and Startup Policy-2017, an investment of Rs 5642.30 crore has been made so far. From the year 2017 to 2022, 43,780 employment opportunities have been made available and in the future, these IT parks will provide more employment opportunities for the youth.
