बनेपाको आइटी पार्कमा खडेरी

करोडौ खर्च गरेर बनाउदै गरेको सुन्दर आइटि नगरी देखेर करिब ७ बर्ष अगाडि मेरो पनि मन लोभिएको थियो तेती बेला म पनि आइटिनै पढ्दै थिए र आहा पढिसके पछि यहि सुन्दर नगरिमा काम गरौला भनेर मन मनै सोचेकी थिए सायद हरेक आइटिका विद्यार्थीहरु जस्ले यो पार्क देखेको छ उस्लाई यो पार्कमा काम गर्न पाए हुन्थ्यो होला भन्ने लाग्थ्यो होला ।

करिब ५ बर्ष अगाडि एउटा प्रोजेक्टको सिलसिलामा ईन्जिनियर स्वामी आनन्द अरुण सँग भेटेको थिए जो बनेपाको आइटी पार्क बनाउनमा संलग्न हुनु हुन्थ्यो, उहालाई मैले आइटी पार्कका बारेमा जिज्ञासा राख्दा यस्को भबिश्य उज्जल भएको जिकिर गर्नु भएको थियो ।

तर बनेपाको आइटी पार्क तयार भएको बर्षौ हुँदा पनि एउटा कम्पनी बाहेक अरु बस्न आएका छैनन् । अझ दुख लाग्दो कुरा त आज कान्तिपुर दैनिक हेरेर थाहा पाए तेही एउटा भएको नेदरल्यान्डको जाभ्रा कम्पनी पनि काठमाडौं सर्दै छ रे जुन कम्पनीमा लगभग ३५ जना नेपाली आइटी प्रोफेसनलले काम गर्छन र सर्नुको कारण थाहा पाउनु भो भने हास्नु हुन्छ तपाईं पनि "राम्रो ईन्टरनेटको सुबिधा नभएको कारणले" सर्न लागेको रे हुन पनि हात्ती छिर्यो पुच्छर अड्कयो भनेको जस्तै यति ठुलो आइटी पार्क बनाए पछि राम्रो ईन्टरनेटको बेबस्था कस्तो गर्न नसकेका होलान जबकी अहिले हरेक आइटीका काम राम्रो ईन्टरनेट बिना असम्भबनै छ यदि ईन्टरनेट कनेक्सन राम्रो छैन भन्ने हामीले जती नै मेहेनत गरेपनी हाम्रो efficiency नै घट्छ अनी समयमा काम सकाउन गार्हो हुन्छ ।

कान्तिपुर दैनिक अनुसार “ईन्टरनेट राम्रो नभएकैले अन्य कम्पनी समेत आउन सकेका छैनन् रे धेरै बिदेशी कम्पनी आउने भनेका छन् तर राम्रो ईन्टरनेट नहुनाले नै रोक्नु परेको छ रे।“

अहिले बर्सेनी लगभग् २५००-३००० आइटी ग्र्याजुयेटस् हुन्छन र धेरै जसो आइटी ग्र्याजुयेटसहरु बेरोजगार बस्नु परेको छ अथवा आफ्नो फिल्ड् छोडेर अर्कै तिर लाग्नु परेको छ अथवा बिदेश तिर लाग्नु परेको छ यस्तो स्थितिमा आइटी ग्र्याजुयेटस् हरुलाई सकेसम्म धेरै opportunity create गर्न परेको छ र त्यसको लागि नेपालमा बढी भन्दा बढी आइटि कम्पनी हुन एकदम जरुरी छ र सरकारले बढी भन्दा बढी बिदेशी आइटी कम्पनी लाई ल्याउने बातावरण तयार गर्न जरुरी छ ताकि IT professional हरुले आफुले पढेका कुरा हरु professionally नेपालमै सदुपयोग गर्न सकुन ।

समयमै उचित कदम नचालिएको खण्डमा जुन आउन लागेका बिदेशी कम्पनी छन् तिनिहरुमा पनि नराम्रो प्रभाब पर्नेछ र सैयौ नेपालीहरुले नेपालमै पाउने अवसर गुमाउने छन् ।

the opening of IT park was a great start in the IT sector but due to the mis management the popularity of its significance is like null. Reading the news that there is no proper internet connection made me feel that the whole effort is all in vain. What is the use of that building without the foremost important Internet? God give them some mind and energy to think somthings prior to what they do.!

Off the topic:

I was just wondering why has the plight of Bhutanese refugees been ignored by most of the Nepali bloggers. In a time when there has been attack from all sides to the identity we so proudly call “Nepali”; the atrocities against the Nepali origin Bhutanese refugees is one devastating example. It's pathetic that we dont feel it’s important enough to cover in our blog.

Since you manage the Nepali bloggers list, it would be great if you could urge all the bloggers for a solidarity to support the refugees.

Keep blogging !!!

Believe or not I had done a 'fake' Environmental Impact assessment (EIA)for IT park (one of my project for my coursework in KU). That was like 7-8 years ago. At that moment they were just building boundaries for the park.

When I went to get more information about it in Ministry of Science & Technology, I was greeted by a very rude engineer, I guess his name was Rakesh sth. Finally I got to see the infrastructure's blue print from the Contractor (Building Associates or sth like that, was near Ghantaghar). They did not allow me to put that blue print in my report because at that time it was uncertain if that project will ever be carried out. Later I was very happy to know that it got green signal.

Now, it's more unfortunate to hear that it's not functional. Why invest money on those projects if you can't even prepare the basic requirements, in this case like the author mentioned high speed internet. I agree, with so many graduates coming out every year sth needs to be done. I have seen people graduate and then go to teaching (no other choices), that's unfair.

Ya when i heard about IT park for the first time i was too excited and had a dream to work there. I have never thought the condition would be so worse. I think the political condition of our country is also responsible too.

It really hurts to know such a critical condition of IT Park specially for IT Professionals like us.But i don't know what the government is doing till the date. I think the political condition of our country is responsible too.

I don't agree the only company over IT Park is leaving due to internet facility. Its business which they must have face higher overhead expenses. The next there is no competition around and working environment. Peace is not enough to work. The next if the IT Park is for foreigner what is for us? The Park should be for us. The Nepalese company who is working for outsourcing job, the Nepali who is having ISP service, the Nepali who is having software company and for Nepali who is under project. For this may be intensive in the beginning by the government. Then we can suppose reasonable IT Park. Bloody !! what for foreign company ???
The problem is up to now there is no proper law and rules for IT and we have small market. We don't have strong out sourcing company here in Nepal too. So the problem is with us. Government has to rise law to IPS provider a certain capital base company the next, duty free harware import and expansion of IT education (which is to some extend growing)etc. After all this also as our country is facing political crisis. May be after constitution election would have good days of IT Park. But i don't excuse to the Park if that is for foreign companies only. After all its good news.

I also dont agree that Javra Software leave IT Park Because of Internet Problem.

Reasons might be:
1. Banepa is 25 km from ktm.
2. nepal is country of STIKES AND BANDH.
3. No support by Nepal Govenment

Anyway this is a bad news for IT PARK and Nepal's IT Dream.
