We constantly invest in our technology infrastructure, for example, in the last one year we have increased the capacity of our data communication links to US to 90 MB, it was about 20 MB we went up to 90 MB. We also created redundant direct communication links from Chennai over and above what we have from Bangalore, so we have two hubs in India now, in Bangalore one hub and Chennai another hub. We have also increased the number of laptop or notebook computers we give to our employees. Today we have more than 10,000 notebook computers distributed across the various centers. We have increased the number of tools we provide, we use in our software development. We have also started using wireless Local Area Network, providing remote accesses to our employes through wireless network and things like that. We also started using Voice over IP for our internal use across our offices and things like that. So there is lot of investment going on to the technology infrastructure. We expect to spend about Rs. 250 crores in the coming year on technology. A good indicator for a knowledge-based company on both R&D as well as in capability building is how much we spend on both training and research and development. We spend about 6 to 8% on training and R&D in a typical year.

Yeah they announced that, it is going to come on the 2nd, there is going to be a function on 2nd, but a part of that crossing is the nice area, there appears to be a court case, because this, you know, the elevated highway is supposed to come down in the area where the Nice road meets the Hosur road, they are sorting it out, but I think it is firm the state government has committed Rs. 100 crores, the Electronic city association has committed Rs. 100 crores to the securitization of toll for the next 15 to 20 years. Hopefully, it will be a very innovative structure, and it is on right now.
