Indian supplier L&T Infotech is creating 85 jobs in Northern Ireland by setting up a European development and maintenance centre in Belfast to support global customers.

The jobs are expected to be created in the next year.

Sudip Banerjee, CEO, L&T Infotech, said, "Northern Ireland has a proven track record in providing a large pool of talented people and an extremely conducive business environment and we intend to leverage this to our global advantage."

HCL is another Indian service provider with a presence in Northern Ireland. HCL has been operating in Northern Ireland since it acquired the Apollo Contact Centre in Belfast from BT in December 2001.

Mark Lewis, lawyer at Berwin Leighton Paisner, said L&T Infotech is an IT service provider which is strong in financial services.

He said if Indian companies are going to increase their UK public sector work they will need UK operations. "If the public sector picks up it is important they have UK operations because they will have to take UK civil servants on board."

L&T Infotech is the technology arm of Indian engineering giant Larsen & Toubro. It was one of the companies which bid to buy Satyam before Tech Mahindra did a deal.
