Satyam to set up shop in Kolkata

Our Bureau

Visakhapatnam , Dec. 8

SATYAM Computer Services Ltd will soon extend its operations to West Bengal by opening a branch in Kolkata during 2005, Mr B. Ramalinga Raju, its Chairman, said.

He was addressing a press meet at the Raghu Engineering College in Visakhapatnam district on Wednesday. Later, he inaugurated the advanced programming lab and Linux lab in the college.

Mr Raju said his company had recently set up offices in Brazil and Hungary. "We have our presence in 45 countries and we are present in all the major cities of the country except Kolkata. We will start operations there during 2005,'' he said.

He, however, remained non-committal when a question was posed to him when Satyam would start its operations in Visakhapatnam, as the State Government had identified the city as the next IT hub after Hyderabad. "We realise and recognise the importance of the city, but at this juncture I cannot say when we will arrive here,'' he said.

He said the Indian IT companies would have to face many challenges to survive in the global market and the necessary pool of talent would have to be developed with the co-operation of colleges.
