How the job industry of West Bengal suffered during the tenure of Trinamool Congress for the last 5 years, which people observed. No new big industry has been started to grow. Among the various other industries of West Bengal, the job industry in Information Technology suffered too much. Several small and mediocre companies got closed due lack of business. In fact, the ruling government has refused to provide ‘Special Economic Zone’ which is an essential part to grow IT industry.

The IT giant Infosys cancelled its planning to grow their business in Kolkata, and it is a very bad news for the people of Bengal. It was quite natural that with this big giant of Information Technology, some 100 companies could have been developed in Salt Lake or Rajarhat area. There could have been an IT book in West Bengal like Bangalore or Hyderabad. So, with this government’s policy, young generation of West Bengal are to face frustration once again, or they have to make their mind to relocate to other job available places like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Noida, Delhi etc.

Urban areas like Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad and so forth came up later and now, developing and growing much quicker while nothing is going on in Kolkata. Why?

1. No industrialization
2. Programming or IT organizations not opening branches
3. No change of existing colleges
4. Big giants are not interested to grow in Bengal
5. Promoting and syndicate around lands are in full-swing
6. Lacuna on Tax Exemption for IT giants on behalf of government

And there are many more reasons also.

For Hyderabad, it was because of Chandrababu Naidu. He pushed a considerable measure of changes in late 1990s and mid 2000s. Regardless of the possibility that you expect that he accomplished for debasement reasons, the reactions have been awesome for city that is currently home to Microsoft IDC and Facebook. Until then numerous Andhra individuals needed to move outside for searching occupations. By taking Hyderabad to the innovation leaderboard, he used the efficiency of the Telugu individuals.

For Bangalore, a great deal of it needs to because of the climate and area. Mysore lords disparaged instruction and innovation more than different rulers. The climate was satisfactory for a significant number of the propelled hardware during an era when A/C was entirely costly and these gadgets were delicate to warm. A considerable lot of our incredible researchers moved there to establish organizations like the Indian Institute of Science.

For Pune, it is again area and history. The city has been a conventional focal point of adapting yet during the Maratha times. The vicinity to Mumbai and modest land got to be included attractions.

Kolkata had been torn separated by the occasions encompassing allotment. Too much of population and Communists have constantly kept the city as a backwater, driving the Bengali researchers to move somewhere else. Likewise, Kolkata has no other real city adjacent. Southern IT hubs get the advantage of each other’s vicinity. Bangalore is only a couple of hours drive from Pune; Hyderabad or Chennai letting the tech experts to switch effectively.

At the point when the IT blast began, the absolute most vital thing that decided development was the means by which proactive state governments were in wrestling interests into their states. Hyderabad began enormous, however soon missed out to Bangalore and even Chennai.

Explanation of some points:

(i) The absolute most essential element that helped these littler urban communities become quickly was the way that they had endless measures of accessible land for new improvements. This was not the situation with Kolkata or Chennai in the 90s – area is impressively more costly to obtain.

What’s more, the way that Bangalore and Hyderabad had unfathomable sums land around their centre urban areas additionally permitted the chairmen to assemble foundation from SCRATCH. Envision attempting to do likewise in Kolkata. You will need to push far away outside Kharagpur or some spot where you can get some spot to begin new framework.

(ii) This is likewise a central point. The government in Hyderabad, they had Chandrababu Naidu who ran insane with the “pull in ventures” motivation. But, the political circumstance there changed essentially after his way out at the surveys and afterward the Telangana Issue came up. Hyderabad is presently third on India’s IT map despite the fact that the level of commitment they demonstrated was all more than the Karnataka government as anybody would like to think.

(iii) Climate, society & accessibility of assets.

For a city like Bangalore, each of the three variables was positive. For Chennai, the climate was a major dampener, yet the city more than compensates for that with its huge and focused talent pool.

To the extent Kolkata goes, it needs an adjustment in government and the city itself needs better showcasing. In any case, to say that Kolkata is “Not Prosperous” would be extremely local comment. We should remember that even without the ‘IT business’, Kolkata is a mammoth city monetarily, contrasted with urban communities that are currently about twice as large in respect of population and very nearly 5 times greater in region than Bangalore and Hyderabad.

But make this city matching with Hyderabad of Bangalore; policy of the state government should be changed as far as Information Technology is concerned. The government must make a solution from their ‘anti-SEZ’ agenda so that big bulls of IT industry may easily come and operate ‘IT Business Parks’. Otherwise creative talents of West Bengal will always flow outside West Bengal as well as India to save them being waste; which is significantly discredit on the part of state government.
