Kozhikode, May 5 (IANS) Kerala IT Wednesday announced that the first phase of the state’s newest IT Park, Cyber Park, here will be commissioned early next year.

Cyber Park is being developed as a hub-and-spoke model in the Malabar region (north Kerala). The hub is being built at 43 acres of land in Kozhikode. The spokes will be set up in Kannur and Kasaragod districts.

The park will provide a special economic zone (SEZ) and non-SEZ space for clients serving the domestic and international markets.

Kerala IT Wednesday got the project approved by the land revenue commissioner and the foundation would be laid this month-end.

‘The project once completed is expected to generate around 30,000 direct jobs by 2015. We expect to start the construction work by July 2010,’ said Ajay Kumar, principal secretary, Kerala IT.

The park will provide basic infrastructure such as a 110 kV substation, internal roads, rain water harvesting, waste water recycling and eco-friendly waste management.
