Following the entry of leading Japanese car manufacturer Nissan, Indian IT giant Tech Mahindra too will set up shop in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan confirmed through Facebook on Wednesday.

The IT giant will function out of Technopark in the state capital Thiruvananthapuram.

“12,000 sq foot has been granted in the third phase of Technopark’s Ganga IT for the setting up of Tech Mahindra’s IT centre. The Thiruvananthapuram office of Tech Mahindra will become functional within three months,” the CM’s post read.

The centre will create 200 jobs in the initial phase. When the company sets up its own campus in the state, 2,000 more job opportunities will be created, the CM announced on social media.

“The activities of the global digital hub of Nissan Motors have already begun in Technopark,” the CM posted.

The post also observed that it was following Nissan’s move that some of the biggest IT firms in India have expressed an interest in setting up shop in Thiruvananthapuram.

Nissan Motors earlier this week signed an MoU with the Kerala government which has offered them 40 acres of land to set up their global centre for R&D and digital operations in India.

The IT centre will research on autonomous, connected and electric vehicles for product development, security and connectivity of Nissan’s car.
