There appears to be a lot of confusion whether we are getting IT park near Trichy and if so how big and who is setting up shop there etc. When I look up the Ministry of Commerce Site, and looked at this document of formal approvals granted, it shows that only 49.9 Hectares (approx 123.305acres) have been formally approved to ELCOT ( search for Navalpattu ) to setup a SEZ in Navalpattu.

Looks like the givernment approval has been acheived and it is a major step. Now it does not mean that we have a timetable to get companies into IT park as it is a completely commercial decison and will be done by IT companies themselves.
