AMARAVATI: Despite IT companies’ plans to call their workforce to the office, the state government has decided to create “work from home cities” to make it easier for tech workers to work from remote locations.
The government decided to establish 25 cities on a trial basis and expand after studying the situation. The government will provide space, workstations, high-speed internet, and other infrastructure in the proposed cities. The decision was made in action from a Mother City Committee meeting chaired by Industry and Information Technology Minister Mekapati Gotham Reddy on Thursday.
Government adviser Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy has asked officials to start the pilot project within three months. He ordered officials to take appropriate measures to provide security, 24/7 internet, privacy, and other facilities at the proposed locations.
Srinatha Reddy, Information Technology Consultant, gave a presentation on the benefits of setting up a job in home cities.
She explained that APSSDC had already identified suitable locations for rent.
