In a bid to facilitate the work from home/ hybrid culture of work, the Government of Andhra Pradesh has announced that it will provide dedicated working spaces for them. Goutham Reddy, Minister of Information Technology, Government of Andhra Pradesh, unveiled the state government’s website, Work from Hometown (W@HT), where people seeking specific spaces for remote work can apply.
The spaces are available in the following locations: Anantapur, Chittoor, East Godavari district, Guntur, Krishna, Kurnool, Nellore, Prakasam, Srikakulam, Vizag, Vizianagaram, West Godavari district, and YSR Kadapa district in the state. These cities and districts will have such spaces set up at multiple points.
With this initiative, the state government aims “To create a synergistic and sustainable IT ecosystem in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities of Andhra Pradesh”.
This ‘Work from your Home Town’ model will take care of all the IT/ITES professionals’ ‘work-from-home’ challenges, while ensuring “a long-term partnership with the industry”, as the initiative is “aligned to meet the present demand and prepare for future growth.”
These work spaces will offer high-speed internet access, uninterrupted power supply, dedicated conference rooms and 24/7 business access.
A professional can avail a spot to work in by logging onto http://www.apit.ap.gov.in/. The site asks the professionals to enter the details of the organisations they are working for, their point of contact and their preference for centre allocation.
