It may be recalled that last month, Cyient and Tech Mahindra had opened their centres in Warangal.
The Telangana government is keen on attracting investments from the IT sector and extending development to the tier II cities like Warangal, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Mahabubnagar and Khammam.
After inaugurating Cyient and Tech Mahindra centres, KTR had said, “Setting up of Tech Mahindra in Warangal is merely a beginning for expansion of IT sector into tier-2 cities of Telangana. We are committed and confident enough to expand IT sector in all tier-2 cities like Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Khammam and Mahbubnagar this year itself."
The office of Cyient in Warangal, currently employs 200 engineers and is planning to hire 600 more locally sourced workers in a phased manner, while Tech Mahindra is likely to provide employment to nearly 1,000 people.
Meanwhile, after opening the new Metro line between JBS to MGBS, Telangana became the second largest metro rail network after Delhi. Presently, the Hyderabad metro covers 69 kilometres.
The newly opened 11-kilometre line from JBS to MGBS will now take Metro commuters just 16 minutes, compared to 45 minutes or more of travel by road.
