To the great relief to the IT/ITes Companies and Establishments operating from the Government owned buildings, the government on Monday has announced resurgent measures to tide over the economic crisis faced by these companies due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and subsequent lockdown.

A moratorium for three months have been offered to those companies who have taken more than 10,000 sq.ft space in the IT parks.

As a special scheme, IT/ ITeS companies who have started operation on or before the 31st March 2021 at any of the government IT parks may avail rent waived for the first three months on operation commencement.

Since with the lockdown there has been a considerable level of reduction in the usage of power and the benefit of reduction in electricity bill will be extended to the end user. The Chief Executive Officer of the IT parks has been entrusted to look into the matter of subsidizing the electricity tariff and the electricity charge to be re-assessed for the month of April, May and June 2020. The requests of tenants/clients who have taken land on long term lease from the IT parks to be given up to six months of additional time for commencement or completion of building over and above the deadline as per the agreement.
