    Naidu's hi-tech blueprint


    'Made in India' will be Andhra Pradesh government's counter slogan to Telangana regime's move to boost local products with the catch word 'Made in Telangana.' This emerged as part of the blueprint for "IT, Electronics, e-Governance" for AP that was unveiled by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday.

    The electronics policy aims to attract investments up to Rs 50,000 crore and generate employment of about four lakh in the state by the year 2020. The policy proposes to set up 20 Electronic Manufacturing Clusters (EMCs) and 200 industries across the state.

    As part of the initiatives to encourage electronics, AP will look for Kerala's support as the southern state has successfully implemented the startup village concept in Kochi. AP's new policy proposes to set up a startup village with 100 incubation centers and 5,000 startups/ entrepreneurs where they will be given exposure for investment and better connectivity. The location for the same is yet to be ? nalised.

    Of? cials hope that a billon dollar company would emerge out of such creative efforts and take forward the industry in a big way in the state. Apart from this, the blueprint has identi? ed three missions, namely, Electronics & IT Mission, Innovation & Capacity Building Mission and e-Governance Mission. The

    "Made in India" brand is part of the electronics mission. To reach the targets, the AP government will provide special package for the semiconductor industry as well as special incentives to NRIs in this in dustry to relocate to AP. In the IT sector, AP government is mulling creating a new green? eld mega IT hub near either near the new capital city or on a 2,000 acre layout near Visakhapatnam,

    Vijayawada or Tirupati.

    IT minister Palle Raghunath Reddy said that a committee will be formed in concurrence with the higher technical education department to study and understand the global requirements of the IT and electronics industry and recommend the necessary changes in the course curriculum.

    The blueprint document also highlights the need to evolve 18 policies & frameworks for the growth of the IT industry in the state. It is estimated that the government would need to spend around Rs 1,785 crore for the industry in the next three years. According to the IT minister, united AP had noti? ed an IT policy in 2010 but there is a need now to review the same. "The new policy will be shaped based on the blueprint and is likely to come up for presentation in the next cabinet meeting," Palle said.
