CHANDIGARH: Two software parks are to be set up in Haryana, where some 100,000 professionals are employed in the IT sector.

One of these will be developed on a 100-acre plot in the satellite town of Panchkula and the other on an eight-acre plot at Faridabad on the outskirts of the national capital, an official of the state's IT department said.

The Haryana State Industrial Development Corporation will help in developing the Panchkula facility while that at Faridabad is being set up in the private sector.

The official said the Software Technology Parks of India department of the central government's IT ministry was setting up an satellite earth station with high speed data communication facilities at Gurgaon, adjoining the national capital, to cater to the needs of software exporters.

Besides, an investor-friendly right of way policy had been framed to strengthen the state's optical fibre network.

The Power Grid Corporation of India and Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited signed agreements with the Haryana government to lay optical fibre networks.

Software exports from Haryana surged to 445 billion in 2002-03 from a mere 40 billion in 1998-99.
