Maharashtra includes ‘connecting centers’ in small towns IT staff as WFH progresses

As work from work (WFH) continues for staff in the information technology sector, Maharashtra is considering creating ‘networking centers’ in local networking centers, where software experts can work for their companies, the minister said.

The state, which is home to an IT center in Pune and has business presence in other packages such as Mumbai, Nagpur and Nashik, has invited proposals from the industry on an ‘inclusive IT policy’, IT Minister Satej Patil said.

Almost all IT employees have been in WFH mode since the outbreak began in March 2020 and companies have been saying the future will have a ‘hybrid model’ with a good portion of staff continuing to work in offices.

Much of the work done by IT professionals is done in sensitive areas such as finance, where private concerns and data retention are important and have forced a few professionals to continue working in offices even during closures.

“We are also planning to start well-functioning government institutions where IT staff can come and work for their companies. All ideas are welcome in this regard,” Patil tweeted Monday, in response to suggestions made by millionaire Anand Deshpande, founding chairman of Pune’s Persistent Systems.
Larger cities, including those in the province, have co-operative facilities such as WeWork from the pre-epidemic and which assist staff from various companies and sectors to assist in dedicated areas.

Patil said the government is trying its best to promote IT in Tier-2 and 3 cities. He urged Nasscom and the Software Export Association Pune (SEAP) to come forward with the help of Deshpande’s proposed regional database.

“Mumbai and Pune have been at the forefront of the IT industry and have been overwhelmed by the migration to these cities.

“We now want to take this development to two and 3 major cities such as Nagpur, Satara, Amaravati, Latur, Nanded and others by providing industry funding. Industries will be encouraged by various institutions through a separate IT policy,” Patil said. said recently.

A statement from Patil later stated that SEAP and Nasscom had responded positively to the complaint.

“As the integrated work plans become a reality, we are focused on ensuring the co-operation and equality of all people, no matter where they are,” Nasscom said in response to a tweet from Patil.

SEAP Vice President Vidyadhar Purandare said the focus should be on cities 2 and 3 to bring growth.

“This should be in addition to improving the infrastructure in existing IT institutions, making them more attractive.
