Punjab will provide dedicated power supply to the IT companies without levying any new chargesWith an objective of attracting investments in the field of information technology, Punjab government has decided to offer dedicated power to the IT companies without any additional cost.

"To provide impetus to the IT sector in the state, we ," Punjab Principal Secretary (Industries) S S Channy said in Chandigarh on 04-10-2008.

He said that the companies in other developed IT areas were being additionally charged 40-60 paise per unit for getting continuous supply of power.

"But Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has agreed that no charges will be imposed on the IT and IT enabled services in this regard," he informed.

Lack of continuous power has been the main reason behind the low investment received by the state in IT sector. As a result of it, majority of IT investment flowed into Chandigarh where there is no problem of power shortage.

As part of its initiative to make Punjab as IT destination, a delegation led by state Industries and Commerce Minister Manoranjan Kalia will be touring Hyderabad and Bangalore to attract investment into the state. Channy informed that delegation will first visit Wipro campus on the invitation of its Chairman Azim H Premji.

Punjab Infotech, the nodal agency for IT investment promotion in the state, is in the process of prioritising projects in areas such as Mohali, Ropar, Kapurthala, Patiala, Jalandhar, Amritsar, and Ludhiana.
