The government has decided to set up 25 townships on pilot basis and go for expansion after studying the situation. The government will provide space, work stations, high-speed internet and other infrastructure in the proposed townships. The decision has been taken at the work from home town committee meeting chaired by Industries and IT minister Mekapati Gautham Reddy on Thursday.
The government advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy asked the officials to kick-start the pilot project within three months. He directed the officials to take appropriate measures for providing security, 24×7 internet, privacy and other facilities in the proposed locations.
IT advisor Srinatha Reddy made a power-point presentation about the advantages in setting up of work from home townships.
