Karnataka, the Indian state that includes the IT hub of Bangalore, has announced several new initiatives planned to enhance the state's technology businesses.

Outlined last week by Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, the new initiatives will see a new Indian Institute of Information Technology, a University dedicated to technology studies, created in the northern city of Dharwad. Another northern city, Belgaum, will also house a new technology park, as the government tries to spread the presence of and benefits flowing from technology beyond Bangalore.

$US18m (Rs.100 crore) has been found to back an electronics system design and manufacturing policies aimed bringing such businesses to the State in the hope they will provide new jobs for youth.

That plan will help the State achieve its ambition of doubling the number of tech-related jobs to two million by 2020 and tripling exports.

To put those goals into perspective, another line item in the State's budget sees around $9m earmarked for delivering cyber cafes into over 5,600 villages. ®
