HYDERABAD: The Tata Group has evinced interest in investing in Telangana. Apart from coming up with a proposal to construct a new block at the IIIT-Hyderabad campus, the group has reportedly told a delegation from the Telangana government led by IT Minister KT Rama Rao that it was interested in launching some of its projects in the State.

IT Minister KT Rama Rao, Industries Minister Jupally Krishna Rao and IT Secretary Jayesh Ranjan met Chairman of the Tata Sons, Cyrus Mistry, in Mumbai on Wednesday. “We have got a special place for Telangana in our heart,’’ Cyrus Mistry told the delegation. Rama Rao explained to him the State government’s proposed T-Hub and invited Tata Capital to participate in the T-Hub Innovation Fund. Cyrus Mistry announced support of Tata Group to IIIT-Hyderabad and said a new academic block would be constructed on the campus in the name of late FC Kohli, founder-chairman of Tata Consultancy Services. Krishna Rao invited Cyrus Mistry to the launch of TS-iPASS, the government’s industrial policy, in Hyderabad on June 12.
