Plea to industrialise Madurai in a big way

Staff Reporter

MADURAI : The Madurai District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (MADITSSIA) has exhorted the State Government to initiate measures and develop Madurai, which has been identified as II tier Information Technology destination.

Sufficient attention ought to be given in developing the infrastructure in order to attract investment in the sector, the association said.

According to the association president, S. Aravind, here on Sunday, investment in the IT and core industries sector was vital to improve the quality of life and also in industrialising the district in a big way. Hence it is imperative to establish large industries in Madurai and neighbouring districts.

Mr. Aravind, hailed the policy announced by the Tamil Nadu Government on non-core business process and said this would boost the opportunities of the sector to confidently drive to competitiveness in the globalisation scenario.

Since the non-core business process sector provides employment opportunities to technical and non-technical graduates besides generating enormous foreign exchange inflow into the country, the policy would make Tamil Nadu a global IT destination attracting enhanced foreign direct investment and generating employment to a greater extent.

Further, the investors throughout the State would be enthused to invest in the business segments of medical transcription, legal database processing, call centres, human resources centres, insurance claim processing, business process outsourcing, etc. The association hailed the Government decision to provide specialised accent training in collaboration with industry and US \ UK councils by promoting and conducting training the trainers programme. "Tamil Nadu which is known as `Detroit of India' and `Manchester of India' will add value through this policy by drawing investments in computer aided design, computer aided engineering, computer aided manufacturing and computer aided testing operations," he said.
