The Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday (22 June) triumphantly tweeted about Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) being all set to start a major centre in Patna, reports Economic Times.
Prasad made the tweet from his official Twitter handle after a meeting with the Chairman of Tata Sons, N Chandrasekaran, discussing India's digital future. He expressed confidence that the investment by India's largest IT company in Bihar would promote further IT companies to set up base in the state.
Prasad's office further elaborated that TCS will be running from its new premises in Buddha Colony in Patna, and start by providing jobs to around 500 persons initially.
As per the statement issued by Prasad's office, the two also exchanged ideas to shape a brighter digital future for the country. It should be noted that Prasad is a member of the Lok Sabha from Patna Sahib constituency.
