Infosys is in the process of expanding its Pune campus by nearly 4,000 seats, to 35,000, and the IT bellwether sought necessary environment clearances from the Ministry of Environment.

An expert appraisal committee (EAC) under the ministry in a meeting held last month accorded Environmental Clearance for the Rs 690-crore expansion plan for its Rajiv Gandhi InfoTech Park Phase II Hinjawadi, Pune campus.

“The EAC, on being satisfied with the submissions of the project proponent, recommended the project for grant of environmental clearance and stipulated the following specific conditions along with other environmental conditions while considering for accord of environmental clearance...” the EAC said.

“There will be an increase in number of employees in the campus. The existing IT professionals are 31,288, and for proposed (expansion), it will be additional 3,712, so the total IT professionals at Infosys’ campus will be 35,000 after expansion,” the committee had mentioned in the minutes of the meeting held earlier.

When contacted, an Infosys spokesperson refused to comment on the expansion, saying that the company is in “silent period”.

A minimum of one tree for every 80 sqm of land should be planted and maintained that the existing trees will be counted for this purpose, the EAC asked the company while granting the EC.
