Row erupts as Infy cancels proposed Kerala campus

An ugly war of words has erupted between Kerala and information technology major Infosys after the latter sent a shock mail last week informing its decision to cancel its proposed second campus at Technocity — the fourth phase of Technopark in the state capital Thiruvananthapuram.

Quoting the MoU (memorandum of understanding) signed between Technopark and Infosys in April 2012, IT Principal Secretary P H Kurien said Infosys should have started construction within a year from the date of lease deed (in this case at least from the date of handing over the possession, along with notified SEZ status).


But Infosys’ head of infrastructure and facilities Ramadas Kamath denied the charges and said the “attitude of officials is very childish and not favourable for further investment in the state”.
Technopark CEO Girish Babu countered saying it had provided all basic infrastructure facilities required.

“We haven’t received from Infosys the building plans or any explanation on the delay. They all of a sudden gave this letter. This is a clear violation of the terms and conditions mentioned in the MoU,” he said.
