Hyderabad: The Telangana BJP today urged Union IT and Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad to take steps for the implementation of Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) project sanctioned to Hyderabad.
The ITIR project was envisaged with an investment of Rs 2.19 lakh crore in 50,000 acres of land and it is aimed at creating employment to 15 lakh people, state BJP president K Laxman said in a memorandum submitted to Prasad here.
“Unfortunately, the implementation of the project is being delayed which is hampering the growth of IT/ITES services in Hyderabad. It is known that the Central government so far sanctioned and released only Rs 160 crore for this project…,” the memorandum said.
Laxman also urged the Union Minister to consider extension of IT/ITES parks to other cities in Telangana.
Meanwhile, ABVP submitted a memorandum to the Minister requesting him, among other things, to set up a law university in every state bringing all law colleges under the purview of the law university.
