Tech Incentive Policy

According to the Tech incentive policy of 2001, the Punjab Government has distinguished media communications, hardware and IT-empowered administrations as the niche areas for the state.

The Punjab government has additionally thought to be both the hardware and data innovation ventures to be covered under the same policy and, subsequently, incentives under this policy will be made accessible to the electronics industry also.

In the Tech Incentive Policy, 2000, as the Department of Industries told, the state has been taking a common strategy for both IT and IT-empowered administrations.

However, with the expected growth of ITeS and for the better understanding of industry requirements, the public authority recognized the need for an extraordinary and designated strategy on ITeS while reevaluating the IT and ITeS Incentive Policy for the Industry in the changed global scenario.

The public authority has been taking feedback from industry players, industry affiliations, educational foundations and concerned departments and agencies to prepare this policy.

The approach sets down rules and objectives. For startups, IT, ITeS and electronics have been distinguished as speedily-growing potential sectors for Punjab.

Working With Clear, Basic Features

This policy has developed with specific commitments to achieve its goals of providing the optimal environment for ITeS, IT and electronics organizations.

Easy Availability of Trained Manpower

The policy guarantees the accessibility of quality manpower in the IT, ITeS and electronics segments certified by prestigious foundations and industries. Due to this reason, a state-level institution for specific training in ITeS-in association with the Industry and incredibly famous foundations is being set up as Tech Hub.

The government is coordinating among several higher institutions of learning and the technical institutions or industries to develop sector-specific ITeS and IT course curriculum and modules. It also provides an institutional mechanism and framework for shared training facilities and infrastructure at a minimal cost.

The Punjab government believes that its highly-qualified, English-speaking individuals are an essential prerequisite for ITeS organizations. The state intends to provide ITeS companies with manpower that’s proficient in English and soft skills and domain-specific skills.

Quality Office Space and Infrastructure Ready to move high-quality office space overhauled with all basic amenities like high-speed telecommunication links with redundant connectivity, uninterrupted power supply with back-up power facility, central air-conditioning is critical.

Therefore, the state government is focused on building several business centres not only around Chandigarh and Mohali but also in other important ‘B’ and ‘C’ class cities and towns in the state, such as Patiala Jalandhar, Ludhiana, and Amritsar, among others.
