Infy renames its Mysore centre after Murthy

Bangalore: Infosys on Monday renamed its Mysore Development Centre after its iconic founder and chairman N.R. Narayana Murthy, who is set to handover chairmanship next month.

The centre houses around 6,000 software professionals and is used by Infosys to provide training to new recruits.

In September 2009, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi inaugurated an expansion of the facility, the Global Education Centre, which Infosys says is the largest corporate education centre in the world.

Located in the 337-acre Infosys Mysore campus, the total capacity of the center was enhanced to educate 14,000. Infosys’ total investment in the Mysore center is 2,055 crore of which 350 crore has been invested in construction of Software Development Blocks and related services, and 1,705 crore has been invested in education and training-related infrastructure.
