Hot favourite

In north Kerala, The National Institute of Technology, Calicut (NIT-C) is a hot-favourite of companies coming down to Kerala for campus recruitment. The placement season of the NIT-C starts in July and will go on till November and may sometimes be extended by a couple of months.

The campus placement is conducted almost continuously at the Institute, points out S.S. Gokhale, Director of NIT-C. "This year the placement is going to be better than last time. It is premature to disclose the statistics of placement of this year at this stage," says T.V. Gopalan, professor and head of Training, Placement and Linkage Department of NIT-C.

High salaries

Last year, three NIT-C students hit the jackpot with the highest offer of Rs 5.5 lakhs made by Trilogy Limited, U.S., a multinational company (MNC). The salary offered on the campus was higher than the `highest' salary of Rs. 4.25 lakhs that was offered the previous year.

A couple of B.Tech. students accepted the second highest offer of Rs. 4 lakhs per annum. "The companies coming in were so many and the students so few that we were forced to refuse some companies," observes Dr. Gopalan.

Most of the companies were IT firms but 35 per cent were from the core sectors. Of 57 students in the Civil Engineering stream, 33 got placements last year. Four students of Civil Engineering and two from the Mechanical Department were absorbed by Larsen and Turbo ECC, with an annual salary package of Rs. 3 lakhs each. The average salary was Rs. 2.5 lakhs and the lowest was Rs. 1.8 lakhs.

Chennai-based retail chain Odyssey, which sells products such as books, toys and multimedia, has chalked out a Rs 125 crore nation-wide expansion plan.

This was unveiled at the opening of the firm’s first store in Bangalore today.

“Odyssey is a well-known brand in south India. We intend to have a pan-India presence this year by increasing the number of stores,” said Odyssey India Managing Director T S Ashwin.

Odyssey has 14 stores in six cities — Chennai, Hyderabad, Salem, Coimbatore, Trichy and Varanasi — occupying a retail space of 75,000 square feet.

By the end of the current financial year, the company plans to increase the number of stores to 20, with more stores coming up in Noida (Uttar Pradesh) and Kozhikode (Kerala).

A world-class terminal will be commissioned at the Kozhikode airport in March, a senior official said. Airport officiating director V S P Chinson said 95% of the civil work has been completed and the terminal was fast nearing completion. A high-power committee from the Airport Authority of India visited the airport in the northern Kerala city last week to review progress of the Rs900mn project. In the initial stage, only three aerobridges will be commissioned followed by two more. At least 1,000 passengers would be able to use the terminal at a time against the present capacity of 300. Three conveyor belts of 60m will be added to the new international terminal. The number of checking counters at the domestic terminal will be increased from five to 11 and from 10 to 28 at the international terminal.

Hot property destinations in 2007
From MonceyControl.com



A booming economy, easy availability of loans and plenty of projects to choose from are perhaps some of the reasons for the property market shining bright. Year 2006 has come to an end and if you're waiting for the right time to buy some nice cozy place under the sun, Moneycontrol gives you a lowdown on the areas across the country that hold the most promise and the reasons as to why they hold high growth potential.

According to Sajeet Narain, Managing Director, 'Narains Corp' International Properties, all Tier I cities will continue to remain a hot favourite in 2007 too thanks to the influx of foreign fund, multinational companies, FDI, better infrastructure among others.

But then if Tier I cities are out of your reach you could consider investing in the surrounding locations. Adds Narain, "A good place to invest in any Tier I city, is the location surrounding the city and the suburbs, as these areas historically have been in demand in most developing international
Tier II cities
Kochi

Potential destinations for the future development

IT Park: Steps on to identify landSaturday February 3 2007 12:15 IST
KOZHIKODE: The Revenue Department has suggested land at Valayanad (Mankavu) and Nellikkode villages in the city for establishing the proposed IT park.

State IT secretary K.R. Jyothilal told Express on Friday that these two proposals have been moved to the office of the Chief Minister the other day.

“We have also sought another stretch of land for better selection. government wants to acquire at least 25 acres of land in a single block for the park. A final decision on the location of the park will be taken after consultations with people’s representatives from the region,” he said.

Additional District Magistrate P. Balan, who is holding the charge of Kozhikode district collector, submitted the proposals to the IT Department on the day of collectors’ conference.

Considering the infrastructure shortcomings of Kozhikode, govt plans to house the park within the city or the city region. The KSIDC growth centres at Balussery and Panakkad (Malappuram), which are yet to find takers among investors, have also been suggested for the project.

“Distance of these places from Kozhikode may dampen investors. At the initial stage of IT development at Kozhikode, we have to groom facilities within or near the city. Hence, KSIDC-owned locations can be considered at a later phase.”

Jyothilal said several models have been suggested for developing the park. Some companies want to buy land and develop their own facility, while others, particularly MNCs, want plug-and-play facility.

Technopark model is under active consideration, as that would require the least gestation period. If the Kozhikode IT Park is planned on the Technopark platform, government can soon go ahead with further steps after the land acquisition.

Several companies operating in Technopark has sought premises in Kozhikode. The park will also benefit IT enterprises born in Kozhikode.

Jyothilal said connectivity with other IT hubs in South India will emerge as a deciding factor for Kozhikode.

Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan has asked all airlines to explore chances of operating services connecting Kozhikode, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.
