What is your conception about an IT Park?
All will say a new hi tech building which looks a bit different from the lot, some nice greenery around, clean and of course some IT companies doing business in there.
True this is what most of you have seen, but for that has anyone seen the Belgaum IT park at Desur built by the KSSIDC.
I know the answer 95% will say “NO” “Belgaum has an IT park?”
Well yes, even tough Belgaum has been lacking quality infrastructure the KSSIDC and its foresight has given Belgaum an IT park way back in 2008-09.
The IT Park is built on 41 Acres 19 guntas land at Desur on Belgaum – Panaji Road (about 500 Mtrs. off NH).
And now the same is being used as a grazing field for the cattle from the near by villages. (At least the park has benefited some one)
Till date there have been no takers for this and this entire 41 acres is lying un utilized.
Sandeep of DotCord IT Solutions who visited the park said that, he wanted to one day open his office in an IT park, but after seeing the Belgaum IT park he said, I rather make my office somewhere else.
41 acres of land just off the high way and no takers, seems funny but why is this is the question?
Wasnt KSSIDC aware of the situation or did their planning go wrong. Were the IT companies consulted before making this park.
All these questions remain unanswered, and we Belgaumites need to see this IT park deserted with cattle grazing all over, may be the cattle themselves have updated their Facebook status” Grazing in IT Park”.
