BHUBANESWAR: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India's largest software exporter, is likely to unveil a software development centre in Orissa as part of its expansion plans.

The state, which already has development centres of marquee Indian technology companies like Infosys Technologies and Satyam Computer Services, may now see TCS opening its facility to serve its local and overseas customers.

"Tata Consultancy Services has expressed its desire to have a development centre in the state. Details are being worked out," a senior official of the industries department told IANS.

Ratan Tata, chairman of one of India's largest diversified business conglomerates Tata Group, the promoter of TCS, is likely to visit the state to explore opportunities in the field of IT, said the official.

Tata is expected to visit Infocity and Fortune Tower, two state-of-the-art technology parks the state government has created to fuel the growth in the IT sector.

While Infocity is a 250-acre park located on the outskirts of the state capital, Fortune Tower is a seven-storied building with all world-class facilities required for IT ventures.

Tata will also meet Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and hold discussions on investment opportunities in the state, said the official.
