37 IT companies left Hinjewadi IT park in last 10 years owing to poor infrastructure
The MIDC representative states that Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park employs about 2,17,412 people across 139 different enterprises.

According to the Hinjewadi Industries Association (HIA), 37 IT companies have left the Hinjewadi Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park in the last ten years as a result of the area’s worsening traffic issues and infrastructure. The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) does not, however, have accurate data regarding this migration.

Since its establishment 25 years ago, Hinjewadi IT Park has struggled with poor road, electricity, trash management, excessive rent, and water supply. Even with the most recent additions to house 139 businesses, the infrastructure has not kept up. There are often traffic delays on these small, badly maintained roadways. Many enterprises are moving to different sections of the state or even beyond the state, according to the HIA.

The HIA Secretary, Lt Col (Retd) Yogesh Joshi, stated that they have been asking for infrastructure upgrades for the last ten years but have received no answer. “Pedestrians must exercise extreme caution when walking due to the lack of pavements and poor road conditions, which are particularly dangerous during the monsoon season.” He added that despite following up with government agencies numerous times, nothing has been done.

For the last three months, Yaibhav, a mechanical engineer from Jalna, Marathwada, has been employed by Tata Consultancy Services. I’ve never been to this place before, so I can’t speak to specifics, but from what I’ve heard, the main problems in this area are traffic and electricity. Not that there are any other problems, but I had a hard time getting a place to stay. I pay seven thousand for a shared room, including electricity expenses, but the power goes out for at least six hours a day, five days a week,” he said

Likewise, M. Suresh, who hails from Tamil Nadu. who has spent the previous two years working at Hella Automotive Company discussed his experiences with lodging and electricity costs. “Where I live, my rent is about 14,000 rupees, which is a lot more than what it is in Chennai and Bangalore. Travel fees are another problem; even though the firm covers them, I still find them to be difficult. Reliability of the electricity has also been a significant problem for me here,” he added.

Suresh continued, saying that although this would be a serious issue, it would be important to take into account any data that the government may have. Vishal Lakhera, a Tech Mahindra employee from Nagpur, voiced concerns about traffic during peak hours, when workers depart. He claimed that Shivaji Chowk is an extremely congested area that causes chaos at rush hours. “My office is in Phase 3, but I live in Phase 1.” I use PMPML for my travel in order to reduce my costs. But occasionally, the traffic lengthens my commute,” he remarked.

Joshi went on to say that this situation has a big economic impact. Employees in Hinjewadi IT Park lose an hour a day due to traffic congestion, which makes a half-hour trip take an hour and a half.

Over the past ten years, a sizable number of enterprises, both members and non-members, have left the park. The IT Park’s infrastructure problems must be resolved immediately, according to Joshi.

The MIDC representative states that Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park employs about 2,17,412 people across 139 different enterprises.
