THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said here on Friday that the Government would examine the deficiencies in the Information Technology (IT) sector.

He said the IT sector should provide details that will help in the creation of more employment opportunities.

The Chief Minister was talking to a team from U.S. Technology at the Technopark here, comprising Arun Narayanan, company vice-president; Niket Sunder, head, human resource development, and Pradeep Gopi, who is in charge of recruitment.

They said they would be able to create 1,000 employment opportunities in a year and 15,000 opportunities in five years if the Government provided the infrastructure needed for the expansion of the company's capacity in software development.

Meanwhile, talking to mediapersons, the former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the United Democratic Front had provided 36 acres to U.S. Technology at the proposed Infocity, near Thiruvananthapuram, in March 2005. The area had been declared a Special Economic Zone.

There will be considerable scope for creation of jobs there. The plan for the creation of 5,000 employment opportunities in the IT sector, mentioned by the new Chief Minister, was negligible compared to it.
