The major companies that have already sought space in the project are HDFC Bank, Acclaris, Calcom Cement and Thyssenkrupp among others.
Talking of skilled manpower, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who was present at the inauguration, said there should not be any demand-supply mismatch between the availability of skilled manpower and industrial needs.
