It didn’t take long for Rolta India to decide its Kolkata center. Perhaps theirs is the quickest decision to set foot in Kolkata among major IT companies. Rolta was approached by the state’s IT minister in February last with the offer of land to locate a facility in Kolkata.
Early this week Rolta has disclosed its intention when it informed the stock exchanges that it plans to set up an IT Park in the city that will have facilities for delivering specialized expertise like geospatial services, engineering design, software development and ERP implementation services for its global customers.
Rolta is a major global player in IT-based geospatial services and has subsidiaries in many countries including the prestigious JV with American nuclear energy technology company, Stone & Webster.
Rolta’s facility in Kolkata will be on a 5-acre plot at Nonadanga, and it plans to recruit over 5000 professionals here over time.
Rolta being a highly specialized IT company, its entry in Kolkata is certainly a good news (more in TT).
