Indian expatriate dreams to make Punjab an IT hubNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:37 am ICT by admin
Gill, a software engineer, migrated to the US from Punjab in 1988.
In 1980s there was a scarcity of jobs for IT professionals in India, said Gill, adding that on the other hand, America was leading in the IT race with more employment opportunities and the placement system was also favourable.
“If you are hard working and display good business ethics, success will be at your doorstep,” said Gill.
Jasvir was the CEO and co-founder of Virsa Systems, before its acquisition by a German Software major SAP.
Gill aspires to train youths of Punjab in Information Technology.
“So that one day even they may be able to set up companies like Virsa and become the CEOs of software companies,” he said.
Besides, Gill is providing funds to a girls’ college founded by his father in a Punjab village. The college provides education to girls, whose parents cannot afford the expense of sending their children to cities for higher studies.
He has handpicked 20 such institutions in Punjab, which are in need of financial assistance. (ANI)
