Wipro and Tech Mahindra have shown interest in investing in Andhra Pradesh. The two companies have approached the State Government for land to set up facilities to create 12,500 jobs.

While the Bangalore-based Wirpo has proposed to set up a Special Economic Zone to provide 7,500 jobs, Tech Mahindra would provide 5,000 jobs.

AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has vetted the two proposals and has given in-principle permission to provide 10 acres of land to Tech Mahindra at Visakhapatnam.
