"By constructing HDIL CYBERCITY at Kalamassery in Kochi, we propose, not only to create a world class IT Hub in Kerala, but also to provide 60,000 direct and 1,50,000 indirect jobs at Kochi. This is our small and humble gift to the people and the State of Kerala" said Mr. Rakesh Kumar Wadhawan, Chairman, Housing Development and Infrastructure Ltd.

HDIL CYBERCITY which has a built up area of 80 lakh sq. ft. in Kalamassery, Kochi, is the first flagship IT project of the company in Kochi. It is also the first and the only integrated IT Township in Kerala.

This mega-city of 70 acres area has been developed into various zones of Residential, IT, Commercial, Hotel, Social, and Infrastructure amenities according to their internal relationships to each other and keeping in mind the natural flow of spaces.

Besides providing 60,000 direct and 1,50,000 indirect jobs to the people of Kochi, the project will also generate over Rs.425 Crores of Revenue for the Government of Kerala by way of Stamp and Registration duty and Employee Welfare and Village Tax.
