    KOCHI: The IT corridor of Kochi is fast expanding into neighbouring regions with Infopark at Cherthala shaping up as a major hub for IT companies from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and other Middle East countries. Infopark Cherthala, which is being developed as a spoke of Infopark Kochi, has attracted mid-segment companies, mainly from Kuwait, Bahrain and the UAE, by providing high in-class infrastructure facilities and leveraging its proximity to Kochi. Currently, 15 companies are operating at the sprawling park which is situated on 66 acres of land. In this, 60 acres have been notified as the Special Economic Zone (SEZ), which offers a slew of facilities and concessions to companies planning to set up their shops there. The park has an added advantage of being equidistant from Kochi, Kottayam and Alappuzha. "The Infopark Cherthala, designed for low cost operations, has emerged as a much sought after destination for IT companies from the Middle East. We are developing the park to accommodate more companies in the next two years. Tenders will be floated to invite private participation in developing IT campuses in the park", said Infopark Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hrishikesh Nair.
    The park with its current 2.4 lakh Sq.feet built-up area offers plug- and-play facilities and warm shell options for companies looking for bigger space. The IT building has food courts, conference hall, discussion rooms and game zones. The park has its own 110 KV sub-station, a water treatment plant, storage tanks, internal roads and an effluent treatment plant.
