Women’s Own Technology Park at Trivandrum to Start Functioning in April

The Trivandrum City Corporation has upgraded the skill-training centre for women at Kannammoola to a Women’s Technology Park, where technically qualified and unemployed women from lower income groups will take up outsourced work from other IT companies and government institutions.

The park is expected to start functioning in April.

“There are several highly qualified young women from poor families. Many of them do not even have the money to buy a laptop with which they could take up projects from home. We will select girls from such families based on their expertise and make them work from the new park. They will be given laptops and they don’t need to pay rent for the space,” says Palayam Rajan, the Welfare Standing Committee Chairperson.

The Corporation had already held talks with the heads of several IT companies in Technopark. Another meeting is in the offing to discuss the projects that can be outsourced to the park.

The Corporation will deduct only the running charges of the centre from the revenue generated. The park will start off with 15–20 women. Depending on the volume of work, the plan is to introduce a shift system and increase the number of personnel.

The park’s running will be monitored by the Computer Training Centre. The Corporation has given a supply order for computers to Keltron.
