We are very serious about IT sector- Says Sri C. K. Mishra, IAS Department of Industries, Govt. of Bihar.
It is one of the sectors where Bihar desperately needs investment. This sector needs less land and almost no minerals. The government is spending big money on connectivity projects, like BiSWAN or Sec-LAN. We are also trying very hard to attract private players. We are developing an IT Park in Bihta near Patna. Infosys is going to open an incubation centre in the IT Park. However, discussions are still on in this sector. So, I cannot divulge anything more about it. The biggest hurdle in this sector is to attract a big player. However, once any one of the big companies is ready to invest in our state, it will start a chain reaction. Their investment is going to attract other companies too.
