NRI seeks to create “Silicon Valley” in Chandigarh
Tuesday, July 31, 2007

NRI Jasvir Gill became a known celebrity in Silicon Valley by selling his company “ Virsa System” to German software giant SAP. Specializing in software enabling companies to be in compliance with Sarbanes-Oxely and other government regulations, Virsa earned Gill accolades and millions.

After the success of Virsa, Gill focused on prospects of software industries in the world and started a company called “SUFI” (Start Up Farms International). Advocating Chandigarh as the new IT hub of India, Gill is not only planning to open a branch of SUFI here, but also encouraging other IT majors to invest in Chandigarh.

He opines that NRIs can make significant contributions to Punjab’s economy. A belief seconded by the State Government of Punjab. The Punjab government is extending all support to make NRIs feel at home. To address the issues faced by NRIs in the state, a separate ministry, the Ministry of NRI Affairs has been set up.

The Punjab Chief Minister has directed the deputed Deputy Commissioners of the state to address all complaints pertaining to NRIs with due diligence. Another state trying to woo NRIs to invest in their motherland is Bihar.

Leading a 30 member delegation, the Chief Minister of Bihar is on a week long visit to Mauritius. This tour is seen as an attempt to connect the Indians living in Mauritius to their native place.

Aiming to strike a cord with the NRIs, mainly from Bihar, the Bihar Government is trying to sell Bhojpuri culture at the Bihar Week, organized by the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin.

The state government is looking at garnering as much NRI interest as possible and convert that into investments.
