Infosys, India's leading software services provider, will set up a software development centre in Nagpur, the company's second in Maharashtra, with an investment of Rs 100 crore.
Infosys intends to invest Rs 415 crore in all and create jobs for 14,000 IT engineers when the centre is fully developed in about 10 years.
The Bangalore-based information technology major, which already has a centre in Pune, signed an MoU with the Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) in presence of Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.
The MoU was signed by MADC Vice-Chairman and Managing Director U P S Madan and Infosys Managing Director S D Shibulal.
India's second-largest software firm will be allocated 142 acres for the centre (its 12th in the country) at Mihan, a air-cargo project being developed by MADC.
According to the MoU, the IT firm will start operations within three years at the centre, which will come up at an investment of Rs 100 crore and provide jobs to about 2,000 software engineers over five years.
Infosys has 64 offices and 68 development centres in India and abroad, and 1,45,088 employees as on December 31, 2011.
