Cyberpark Kozhikode and UL Park, Most Awaited IT Projects of Malabar
The IT dreams of Malabar and especially the city of Kozhikode (Calicut) got a shot in the arm when the Government of Kerala announced the Cyber Park project. The project soon became the most eagerly awaited project after the Kozhikode international airport.
Once the park is completed, Cyberpark is expected to generate direct employment to 30000 IT professionals and thousands of indirect jobs. It will have facilities to accommodate 30000 middle class, income-tax-paying people with an average disposable income RS.30000 per month. That will change the face of Kozhikode from a beautiful sleeping coastal town to an ambitious thriving metro.
As part of the Cyberpark, a privately owned UL Cyberpark is being set up by Uralungal Labour Contract Co-operative Society (ULCCS) Limited. UL park is Malabar’s first IT Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and Kerala’s first fully green LEED certified IT Park.
UL CyberPark set an example by completing its construction works almost on schedule and is expected to be operational by early 2014.
Along with Thiruvanathapuram Technopark and Infopark Kochi, Cyberpark Kozhikode will form the three IT hubs of Kerala. Kerala is aiming high, to make Kerala state as the Silicon valley of India challenging Bangalore, the IT capital of India and other major metros.
