HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) for expansion of its MIHAN campus in Nagpur, in-line with HCL’s plan for Tier-II cities in the country. As part of the MoU, HCL will acquire 90 acres of land to add to the existing state-of-the-art 50-acre campus in MIHAN, Nagpur.
The MoU was exchanged in the presence of Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Road Transport & Highways of India and Shipping Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of India, Apparao VV, Chief Human Resource Officer, HCL Technologies and Sanjay Gupta, Corporate Vice President, HCL Technologies among other dignitaries.
HCL started its business operations in Nagpur in April 2018 and already has more than 800 employees servicing global accounts. The MIHAN centre delivers a spectrum of services, including Infrastructure Management, Application Development, Product Engineering, BPO, IT Services Management and HCL’s internal enabling functions. The campus, when fully operational, will employ over 8,000 personnel.
Gadkari said, “I am pleased to note the impressive growth of HCL Technologies and their contribution to socio-economic development of Nagpur. Our IT sector has contributed immensely to help India make its mark on the world map. This expansion of the HCL campus in Nagpur will provide many opportunities to local talent and promote growth and development in the city. I wish HCL the very best for all their future endeavours.”
Apparao said, “As a global technology company, it is our constant focus to reach out to the young talents who are looking for a career in the IT sector. Our expansion in Nagpur is going to be part of HCL’s strategic vision to expand and bring global opportunities to tier-II cities, beyond the large metropolises in the country. Our endeavour is to bring global IT careers to you without having you to move out of your homes to other cities.”
