Hyderabad: Aiming to make Hyderabad the country’s top information technology destination, the Telangana government will launch four new policies for IT, innovation, gaming and animation and hardware on December 28 during Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s visit.

Telangana Information Technology Minister K. Tarakarama Rao told reporters on Saturday that they plan to hold a big event during Nadella’s visit to T-Hub, billed as India’s largest technology incubator.

The government has requested Nadella to unveil policies for IT, innovation/startups, Innovation in Multimedia, Animation, Gaming and Entertainment (IMAGE) and Electronic System Design Manufacturing (ESDM).

The minister announced this while inaugurating incubator for IMAGE, developed by Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) in collaboration with the state government.

Referring to the floods in Chennai which hit the IT sector, the minister said Hyderabad has the unique opportunity as no other city is as safe as Hyderabad.

“No other city is shielded from natural calamities like cyclones, typhoons and earthquakes. We have to seize this opportunity and work for it,” he said.

KTR, as the minister is popularly known, said with the initiatives taken by the government during last 16 to 18 months, Hyderabad had re-asserted itself as one of the premier destinations of IT in the country.

“But we are not completely content with this. We have bigger plans. Multiple initiatives have been taken and with the kind of planning and policy support, we hope that Hyderabad will be the top destination in the country in a couple of years,” said KTR, who is the son of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
