“Genpact has been establishing world-class centers in places with highly skilled local talent, along with highly-sustainable infrastructure and a favorable business environment. Keeping this in mind, Kolkata has been an integral part of our growth strategy and has seen terrific growth in the last several years. This expansion is testament to our commitment to the state and the city, and we plan to continue partnering with the government in our journey,” said Mr. Piyush Mehta, Chief Human Resources Officer, Genpact.
“We at Simplex were looking for opportunities to build infrastructure for IT/ ITES offices as the service industry is increasing by leaps and bounds. When we got an opportunity to develop Imagine Tech Park with a large global and reputable professional services leader like Genpact, we were immediately excited as it gave us an opportunity to build a class A sustainable and eco-friendly infrastructure. We are also targeting an IGBC platinum green certification, which will optimise the energy consumption and a proper stimulation has been done to achieve this. A special zone is being created for encouraging startups and nurture them in their formative years. We believe that the youth in the state has immense potential, have brilliant ideas, and need support in their earlier days,” said Mr. Rajiv Mundhra, Managing Partner, Simplex Infra Technopark LLP.
Imagine Tech Park is expected to be completed by 2021.
