Chennai, July 23(BPNS)

Tamil Nadu Minister for Information Technology, T. Mano Thangaraj has said that the DMK government under M.K. Stalin would turn Hosur into Silicon Valley. He was interacting with the media at Hosur on Friday.

The Minister said that the previous AIADMK government had shelved several projects mooted by the DMK government of late Chief Minister, M.K. Karunanidhi. He said that there was a gap between the industry and the government during the previous regime.

The state IT Minister said that many industries have left the state for Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana and that the state government is on the role reversal of the same.

He said that the aim of the government is to turn Hosur into Silicon valley and that the department would soon bring out a detailed project report to implement the proposal.

Mano Thangaraj said that the government is focused on increasing ‘Ease of Doing Business to attract new ventures and youth start-ups as also traditional businesses.

He said that the investors and industrialists had complained of a lack of clarity in the state and added that everything will change and there will be a single-window clearance.

Mano Thangaraj said, “Wherever we go, industry heads say that there was no clarity on whom to approach. That will change now. The schemes that will be stalled or shelved would be revived now.”

The minister was interacting with the representatives of the Hosur Small and Tiny Industries Association (HOSTIA) and Hosur Industrial Association(HIA).
