Bhubaneswar, the capital city of Odisha is a well-known Information Technology and Information Technology Enable Services (IT-ITES) hub in the Eastern region of the country. As the leading ITITES exporting state in India, the Government of Odisha is actively identifying and promoting new areas for new investments in the IT industry.
Info Valley otherwise known as Infocity – II is also known as the growth corridor of Odisha. It is one of the new investment areas, where major IT companies will set up their offices in the coming future. It is located in the south-west of Bhubaneswar city, 6 minutes away from Khandigiri and 3 mins from DN Regalia, a world class shopping mall and in close proximity to National Highway (NH-5). Info Valley is going to be the next big thing in the city and is all set to become the new and exemplary integrated development area in the state. Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (IDCO) will soon set up Info Valley as one of the largest IT Park with Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and an integrated township of 295.1 ha of land situated within the area.
This Bhubaneswar-Khorda corridor is not only the fastest growing region of the city, but also of the entire state. Today, the site is viewed as a modern eco-friendly IT Park that has a future of full and reliable infrastructure being coupled up with smart and sustainable features. This is being developed into a preferred destination for IT-ITES investors and is therefore, considered as the growth corridor of the state. In order to make Info Valley the most preferred IT destination in Odisha, efforts are being made to build attractive lifestyle of International standards and create a sustainable community with green environment. The available land is being used efficiently to utilize modular parcellation layouts to cater to the diverse market needs. Info Valley also has the potential to create new industrial employment opportunities for the upcoming generation and provide a world class quality infrastructure.
