PATNA: The 15th Software Technology Park of India (STPI) will be set up here.

Announcing this, central Minister of State for Communications and IT Shakeel Ahmed said the state government had agreed to give land to the IT ministry for the purpose.

Rajesh Gupta, Bihar's secretary for science and technology, told IANS that work on the STPI would start soon. The state has already set up a software technology park at the local level.

Ahmed hoped the STPI would boost the software industry in Bihar.

He also said there were plans to develop the state's telecom, postal and IT sectors. "We have decided to computerise the postal system on an experimental basis in a few districts of Bihar," he said.

The computerisation will facilitate online interstate money transfers on the lines of international money transfers. The facility would help millions of Bihar labourers working across India to send money back home quicker, he said.

He also said the ministry was planning to connect 10 districts in the state by Nov 11 through videoconferencing.

1: These politicians will just do announcement and inauguration. Later on things will be thrown out in cold box. The fact is that these bullshit politicians hardly understand the value of IT Park. I guess in the regime of these corrupt politicians IT Park in Patna will never come up. It's my bad luck that Being Bihari I cannot work in Bihar and I am settled far away in USA. Because of these kinds of politicians our country was in the hand of British people for a long time. Shame on all crooked politicians of India.

I agree with you at some points. However most of Biharis believe that the situation of politics in Bihar has changed. After a long time Nitish Kumar has made us proud of being Bihari. So we hope that this decision of setting up IT Park in Bihar is a very bright ray of hope for we IT people specially.
We should do for our motherland instead of only criticizing those who are mentally ill and illiterate and who does not understand the value of Pride.
