Bangalore: Infosys Technologies is planning to set up a new campus in Bangalore and has sought about 350 acres of land from the Karnataka government. The proposed campus would be located north of the city.
"Nearly 45 per cent of our over 35,000 people are in Bangalore and we are growing here," said N R. Narayana Murthy, chairman and chief mentor, Infosys, adding that the company needed some more space to expand its operations. Infosys added 10,000 people to its staff in nine months to December 2004.
The Karnataka chief minister, Dharam Singh, who visited the Infosys campus at the Electronic City on Wednesday said that his government would provide all support to the company. "Infosys has requested the government for 300 acres of land and we will consider it," he added.
"All assistance would be given to generate more employment," Singh said, adding that Infosys was also being allotted 50 acres of land at the proposed Rs390-crore Hi-Tech City, being set up by the government.
