About STPI Mumbai
India has many reasons to feel proud about the success of its Software Industry. During the post liberalization era, Govt. policies have acted as a catalyst and facilitated the growth of IT exports.
The software Industry has attained global recognition primarily because of the timing of the policies and simplistic procedures laid down by the Govt. when they were needed. The Industry also has responded very well to the changes in the policy. The right partnership between the Govt. & Industry has facilitated this success. Establishment of the Software Technology Park Scheme in 1991 has been a step in the right direction, at the right time.
Established on 5th June 1991, Software Technology Parks of India (STPI), an autonomous society under the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India, has since emerged as the growth driver of Indian IT/ITeS/ESDM industry. With a mandate to promote software and electronic hardware exports from the country by implementing Software Technology Park (STP) & Electronic Hardware Technology Park (EHTP) Schemes, STPI pioneered the ease of doing business for policy governance in India by building a robust ecosystem to provide single window clearance services, world-class internet connectivity, state-of-the-art incubation facilities and other infrastructure services to encourage, promote and boost software exports.
With 10 jurisdictional directorates and 61 centres, STPI has expanded its presence pan-India to disperse tech-driven entrepreneurship to tier-II/III cities. STPI has warranted the growth of software exports and generated employment and entrepreneurial opportunities by buoying the economic progress of the nation. In FY 2020-21, STPI-registered units contributed Rs. 4,96,313 crore software exports.
STPI has been instrumental in promoting IT exports from the Maharashtra since inception of STPI-Pune in the year 1990. Apart from Pune, STPI centers are operational at Aurangabad, Kolhapur, Nagpur, Nasik, and Mumbai in Maharashtra & Panaji in Goa. Over the years, STPI has played a very important role to promote the region as a preferred IT destination and act as single window agency for IT/ITES industry by putting new milestones in IT exports of the State. In FY 2018-19, STPI-registered units under STPI-Pune jurisdiction contributed Rs. 85,675 core software exports.
