Paresh Babaria, How do you an­a­lyse the growth of IT in­dus­try in Surat in last 2 years? Paresh Babaria: There has been 10 to 15 per cent growth in all the in­dus­tries in Surat. The same growth has been re­flected in the IT in­dus­try as well. Ear­lier, hard­ware was the ma­jor rev­enue con­trib­u­tor, but now soft­ware in­dus­try is also rapidly grow­ing in Surat. Mo­bil­ity and Se­cu­rity & Sur­veil­lance are the seg­ment which is grow­ing at a fast pace here. How has the ‘Safe City’ project and ‘Smart City’ project ben­e­fited Surat? Paresh Babaria: Both the projects are the land­mark projects and have changed the se­cu­rity sce­nario in Surat. The en­tire city has been cov­ered with CCTV sur­veil­lance and it has helped the law en­force­ment forces to curb the crime to a large ex­tent. Th­ese projects have also en­abled lo­cal play­ers to work with MNCs in de­ploy­ment and in­te­gra­tion at the lo­cal level.
