    Leela IT park

    Hi frnz,

    Leela started a new info park in cochin and it is fully occuppied.In the previous discussios

    some of the frnz written about none of the companies dont want to come Kerala.now all the

    infoparks are fully occppied and leela is planing to costruct 2nd and 3rd phase of the

    info park.so our ommen and group is always behind the smartcity and not doing any thing to

    get other companies to come kerala and invest here. other companies are very much interested

    to come kerala, if they have a proper infrastructure. ommen and group is behind smarcity

    project and not doing any thing to get other companies here. so i think it is ommens smart idea.

    Very good. Let Leela setup parks. Let L&T setup park. Let everyone, including DIC, who have got money, set up parks in Kerala.

    Well said Pappu. I don't understand what Karan is trying to say. If Leela is establishing a park that is a welcome thing. It will also serve to demolish the fallacy of "No IT parks in Cochin other than DIC".

    >>other companies are very much interested to come kerala, if they have a proper infrastructure.
    ----------
    Yes. This is what we are also saying. So we should encourage anybody who builds infrastructure, be it DIC or Leela or L&T so that we can land more and more companies in Cochin.

    User Level:

    I think you only written the above message to my query. You said domestic and international

    companis are not interested ???, but the company who occuppied the entire space in leela

    park is an internatonal company. so our great "viksanam ommen" is not meeting other

    domestic companies to invest here, and you great openion "In the current socio-economic-political scenario domestic/international companies are not as <your living some other world, every one is very clear ommen and team is just behind the smartcity
    not meeting other companies. hope you can understand some thing from this.

    >>You said domestic and international companis are not interested ???, but the company who occuppied the entire space in leela park is an internatonal company.
    -------

    You are mis-representing my statement. I said that they are not AS INTERESTED IN KERALA AS THEY ARE IN THE OTHER STATES. See the complete remark below:

    "In the current socio-economic-political scenario, domestic/international companies are not as interested in Kerala as they are in the other states. As Ajit said, they are gradually getting interested. Giving land to DIC is not going to make the future prospects of Indian software companies investing in Kerala any bleaker. It will only brighten those prospects."

    Can you dispute this statement? Can one Leela enable us to compete with Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Hydrabad or even West Bengal???? So the solution is to encourage any investor who's interested in starting a facility in Kerala. DIC showed interest, Chandy encouraged them. Is this wrong????


    >>every one is very clear ommen and team is just behind the smartcity. so our great "viksanam ommen" is not meeting other domestic companies to invest here.

    Ok, for argument's sake, let us assume that this is correct. But then unlike Laloo, Chandy has not been ruling Kerala for the past 15 years. So why didn't these domestic companies invest in Kerala before Chandy or even UDF came into power?? How come despite 15 yrs of the govt effort, Kerala's IT export is mere 300 crores; whereas that of Karnataka is around 40,000 crores???

    why mr chandy is only behind smartcity ?????,did he approach any other comapnies , yes

    he was in bangalore for IT meet, but what is the outcome of the visit ????, it is very clear

    that Mr.chandy is not doing anything apart from getting DIC here.Other CM are not behind

    the DIC, they talk with multinational comapnies and get the investment here, like dayanidhi maran and west bengal chief minister, but that type approach is not happening from chandy s

    side,he know only one invester that is DIC.

    First of all, I'm not here to support Chandy. But in case of Smart City, it is not Chandy who proposed it, rather it was the DIC officials that proposed this project to Chandy. Similarly as you are saying Leela also proposed, that also got approved and they also constructed the infrastructure. So what is the problem?

    >>he was in bangalore for IT meet, but what is the outcome of the visit ????, it is very clear that Mr.chandy is not doing anything apart from getting DIC here.

    Why are you singling out Chandy? At least he has been successful in bringing DIC, Leela and L&T. What have the other CMs done? It is in this context that I said that it is not only the CMs that are to be blamed. It is the paranoiac mentality of Keralites to be blamed. One section opposes saying that the govt itself should develop all the infrastructure and MNCs should be thrown out. Another section opposes saying that domestic companies should be invited and the foreign MNCs should be thrown out. Yet another section opposes saying that this land and the money should be distributed to the poor in Kerala rather than utilizing it for infrastructure.

    The only common thing is "oppose".

    Very good Karan. So of companies from Bangalore (those Chandy met at IT.COM) don't come to Kerala, its Chandy's fault. If DIC comes to Kerala, thats Chandy's fault too!

    Fact is, DIC is far bigger than most others. And they are willing to set shop in Kerala. Naturally, everyone is interested more in them.

    Say you are a seller of software, and have two clients. One is willing to buy 1000 licenses of your software, the other needs 50. Which customer will take more time and effort of yours?

  • #1724
    Yes Pappu......
    Why they are blaming us without reason or making everything reason to blame us!!!
    When i come with any of the developments they says that is corruption!. What is this dude!!
    Then what is the politics for? They know nothing, because they are children!!!!(As laleettan says).
    What they are thinking? We are trying to get with the equality or socialism into india! This is not the gandian era, and we are not conservatives like gandhi. We put our trust not on the orthodox views of the gandhism or nehru's socialistic principles but we are thinking practically; our trust on the pragmatism not on these utopian ideologies...
    Regards,
    Omman Chandy
