  • Hi Anonymous,

    We at Madurai247.com, have posted an article about the delay in IT park progress in http://www.madurai247.com/2010/07/madurai-it-park-progress-july-22nd-2010.html. please check the link above.

    There definitely seems to be a delay, but IT park is sure to happen by end of the year or early next year.

    As you have already guessed, there seems to be uncertainity here in terms of timings - due to various logistical reasons, which many of Madurai folks are puzzled about still. Things are not completely clear.

    We will keep you posted as soon as we get information about Madurai IT Park....
