IT Corridor Infrastructure • Trivandrum is endowed with a natural alignment of seaport, airport, rail hubs, IT & knowledge industry clusters and social infrastructure between Chackai and Thonnakkal on the NH-47 • Immediate steps need to be taken to develop it into a formalised IT Corridor • Areas along the IT Corridor needed to be zoned for mixed- development, to permit commercial, residential and institutional development along its length • An increased FAR needs to be provided to encourage growth • The road needs to be widened to 6 lanes with 2 service lanes immediately – By 2014, the road may need to be widened to 8 lanes • Electricity, water and sewerage facilities need to be developed in anticipation of growth • Mass Transit arrangements need to be put in place along the Corridor – Initially BRTS can be implemented followed by a higher-capacity system like a mono-rail.
Electronics Hardware Sector • Trivandrum has a strong presence in the sector since the early days of KELTRON • Trivandrum posses unique advantages to emerge as a hub of electronics hardware and semiconductor manufacturing – Strong R&D presence with institutions like CDAC and NIIST – Firms like NEST & Tata Elxsi are already active in the field – Skilled talent pool – engineers and technicians – Low labour cost – Strong logistics – Port & Airport • Key industries may be: – Hardware assembly – Semiconductor fabrication, assembly and testing – Non-conventional energy – Telecommunications – Aerospace and Defence electronics • KINFRA is planning a Electronics Hub on 1000 Acres near Pothencode
Biotechnology and Medical Sector • Trivandrum has several distinct advantages in developing into a center of the biotechnology industry – Extensive biological diversity in the vicinity – Existing instiutions like RGCB, TGBRI, SCIMST and so on – Large pool of skilled and experienced talent – Well developed medical sector – Association with related sectors like material sciences, computing and electronics • The proposed Biotechnology Park by KSIDC could be the spring board for development in this sector • With its unbeatable combination of world-class hospitals and tourist attractions, Trivandrum could also be a global hub for medical-value travel and medical outsourcing.
Material Sciences Sector • Trivandrum is home to leading institutions in the physical sciences like the NIIST and IISER – It is poised to be the home of a world-class Molecular Sciences Center for which the State Government will soon allote land • Material sciences like molecular biology and nanotechnology will be the biggest growth sectors in a few years from now • Nanotechnology could be the next big thing after IT and could be a trillion dollar industry in 10 years • Trivandrum can provide a R&D base for the new industries and later become a manufacturing hub • Material sciences could be made part of the proposed Electronics Hub by KINFRA

Zones of Development Residential Zone Commercial/Industrial Zone
Conclusion • The Trivandrum Capital Region to be formally created to cater to the expansion needs of the Trivandrum Metropolitan Area • A centralised authority to plan and co-ordinate development of the TCR – TRIDA could be expanded for this role • The development zones discussed here to be brought within the purview of the Master Plan – The IT/Industrial areas will witness the most development going forward • The IT Corridor to be formalised immediately – Infrastructure and planning incentives like extra FAR to be provided – A special development agency to be created for this • All future infrastructure expansion to keep at least 2020 demand levels in mind
