Partha Chatterjee Welcomes TCS Investment in WB
Welcoming the announcement from TCS to invest Rs 1,350 crore in Rajarhat IT SEZ, state industry minister Partha Chatterjee today said the government was not against anyone, but only against forced land acquisition.

"We are not against anybody, we are against the principle of forced land acquisition," Chatterjee said on the sidelines of a CII-organised Defence Conclave here.

The Minister said he welcomed TCS's announcement to invest Rs 1,350 crore on setting up a software development campus in Rajarhat.

Chatterjee, however, declined to comment on the Singur land issue which involved Tata Motors, saying the matter was sub-judice.

The new TCS campus, spread over 40 acres near Rajarhat on the city's outskirts, would be functional by the end of 2014-15 and would employ 16,500 IT and BPO professionals.

Earlier, TCS CFO S Mahalingam announced that with the commissioning of the new campus, the company's headcount in West Bengal would almost double from 18,000 to 35,000 in the next two years.

"We remain committed to working in close collaboration with all stakeholders in the state to help develop local talent and provide our customers with world-class IT solutions from this location," Mahalingam said.
