Hyderabad to house world’s largest Infosys campus

Hyderabad will soon have Infosys’ largest campus worldwide. Currently, Bengaluru hosts the company’s largest centre. The director of Infosys, Mr Mohandas Pai, said this after the Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, performed the groundbreaking ceremony of Infosys’ second campus at Pocharam on the outskirts of the city.

Mr Pai, said, “This campus, once it is ready, will be the largest campus of Infosys worldwide. The campus, spread over 447 acres, will have five million sq. ft area as compared to Bangalore centre’s four million. The campus will have five development centres and 1,000 room residential accommodation,” he said.

The centre, which has got platinum rating in eco-friendliness, will use solar power, solar water heating and will have best waste water and rainfall management systems. With its 25 megawatt power backup, the centre will not have to deal with the city’s unreliable power distribution system. Infosys chairman Mr Narayana Murthy said the campus will seat 25,000 people and will be developed in three phases in 10 years.
