Where have all the land alloted to Multinational ITeS companies for IT parks gone
The very first allotment of 1 acres of prime land on ShahastraDhara road in Dehradun was made to Florida based Multinational ASTRA BUSINESS SERVICES at a throw away price on with a big public function by big announcements by the then CM Shri N D Tiwari( Plot no 21 ). They announced a job for 1000 locals and informed that they had already recruited 250 persons.
Now read the list of current users of the plot.http://www.siidcul.com/Portals/0/attachments/LOA_ITPARK.pdf
Plot no 21 is not with ASTRA but one S M Professionals and used as a accounts training centre. most of the space is rented.
How did Astra change to S M professional ? Very funny? S M Professional Services is a chartered account firm of a couple MUKUL AGARWAL and SHAFALI AGARWAL based out of Vasant Vihar. Mukul Agarwal was the CFO of the company Astra at the time of allotment in 2006 and wife Shafali is the current CFO. See them in Linkedin. How did this happen?
Now Mukul Agarwal is Director of DASSAULT SYSTEMES in India.
The mystery of vanishing ITeS company replaced by
commercial hub. And then we keep acquiring farmers land in name of development. more
