Telecom and IT major Spanco said that the Orissa government has awarded its first software development centre project to the company. 

The contract is the first of 23 similar software development centre (SDC) projects the state government plans to set up as part of its e-government initiative under the National eGovernance Plan. 

Spanco didn’t disclose details of the contract. 

Spanco chairman Kapil Puri said, "It is a matter of great pride for Spanco to have the first SDC order in the country. This is important for Spanco as we now have presence across the entire service delivery infrastructure of the National eGovernance Plan." 

Spanco, which has already won a contract to implement state wide area network, has set a target of about five to seven SDC projects in the country, Puri said. The centre has to be completed within four months
