Tata Consultancu plans venture in Pakistan

Information Technology could well be true that money and business are the greatest levellers, knowing no nationality or ideology. Indias top brand Tata Consultancy Services, which last month inked a pact to set up an information technology services company in China, is now planning to set up a training centre in Pakistan. The training facility is intended to target engineering students who pass out of colleges in Pakistan and provide them the skills and capabilities required to close the gap between their academic training and industry requirements. Tata Consultancy Services has been talking to various government agencies in Pakistan as well as to the Nasscom equivalent in that country that is known by the name of P@SHA. In fact P@SHA had sent a delegation to the Nasscom annual conference in Mumbai that was held in February this year. This venture by the top Indian technology brand could prove to be a medium to bridge the gap between India and Pakistan and prove to be a blessing in disguise.
