Kolkata: The West Bengal government has earmarked 100 acres near the new airport at Andal in Burdwan district for an information technology (IT) and electronic cluster, IT minister Debesh Das said here Wednesday.

"We want to promote the hardware sector for which we have earmarked 100 acres close to the new airport at Andal. We think it will be the right place for an IT and electronic cluster," Das told a visiting Chinese delegation at an interactive session with the Bharat Chamber of Commerce.

He said the state was focussing on the IT and electronic hardware sector after discussions with several South East Asian countries like Taiwan for collaboration.

"We will also try to harness solar power equipment as the country has set a target of 20,000 MW of solar power by 2020 under the National Solar Mission," he said.
