New Delhi: The country's largest software services firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) inaugurated its 10,000-seat campus at Gandhinagar on Saturday.

The software development facility, inaugurated by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, has been developed over 25.5 acres, with a built-up area of 1.6 million sq ft, TCS said in a statement.

"TCS has played a pioneering role to make Gujarat an attractive IT destination for global companies and also helped drive technology-led growth by investing in talented youth of the state and building long-term partnerships with state institutions," TCS CEO and MD N Chandrasekaran said.

This centre will help TCS scale up its presence and drive the expansion of the IT industry in Gujarat, he added.

The new centre has been developed as a 'green' campus and has applied for a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold rating.

Built with locally sourced red stone, the campus will use solar panels, LED lighting, occupancy and light-sensitive sensors to optimise power consumption.

The campus, which also features a learning centre and iClass rooms (connected with other TCS learning hubs globally), is located in an approved Special Economic Zone and will serve global customers across industry segments.
