Rs 1,500 Crore Tech Park In Gurgaon

It is being planned by the Dutch Haryana Business Consortium (DHBC) and Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) to build Rs 1500 crore Tech Park near Gurgaon in Haryana. Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) has a stake of 10 percent in the project. 

The Haryana State Infrastructure and Industrial Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and the Dutch Haryana Business Consortium (DHBC) signed a Statement of Interest i.e. SOI on October 10, 2006 at Amsterdam in Netherlands.  

The Haryana Investment Promotion Board has already granted clearance in 2008. It was done after a techno economic study. The project could not start because of the global recession. But now the company plans to launch the project at the earliest since the recession is over. 

Three locations have been suggested by the Haryana government for the project, which will be spread over a maximum area of 500 acres. DHBC, after technical surveys, would be giving final consent and final report will be submitted by 31st of December. 

DHBC is talking to various western European companies such as Netherlands-based processed foods manufacturer HAK Agro Foods, German telecom operator T Mobile, Royal Friesland Foods, a Netherlands-based dairy company and Royal Hass Konning, a European engineering and Design Company. It wants them to set up their units here. 

So with the coming of all these multi national companies it is expected that there will be an increase in the employment opportunities in the region with over development of the area.
