AHMEDABAD: Gujarat is considering a new IT policy to give greater emphasis to business process outsourcing (BPO) operations in which the state is beginning to make its mark.

"A revamp of the IT policy is under consideration. A good amount of discussion is going on in the government," said science and technology secretary J.N. Singh.

"Even if Gujarat is not seen as the most preferred destination today, it is emerging as a very strong destination for BPO entrepreneurs. We offer a number of advantages," he said.

"Attrition or employee turnover ratio is very low in the state. Regular power supply is assured. That is not the case with, say, Bangalore where power failure even at peak business hours is quite common," Singh said.

He said the traffic flow on the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar belt was also much better than in areas around Bangalore.

Singh congratulated Kaushal Mehta, CEO of Motif India Infotech, an Ahmedabad-based firm named among India's top 10 BPO firms in a survey.

The Infocity IT park near state capital Gandhinagar has also attracted a number of high profile firms.

"Motif, Effective Teleservices and a number of other firms are showing that the state is finally making a mark in IT-related industries," Singh said.
