Indian IT giant Infosys has said it plans to build the world’s largest free-standing clock tower at its campus in the southern city of Mysore.

When it is ready next year the Gothic-style tower will stand 135m (443 feet) tall, the firm says, dwarfing other clock towers around the world.

Currently the tallest free-standing clock tower is thought to be the 100m-high Old Joe in Birmingham in the UK.

Big Ben in London is just 96m in height (and is not free-standing anyway).

It is not clear if the Infosys clock will chime on the hour, as Big Ben does.

Infosys, which employs tens of thousands of people around the globe, says it should aspire to be the biggest and best in the world.

“Clock towers symbolise perfection, discipline and the way we do our work,” the company’s Executive Vice-President Ramadas Kamath told the BBC Tamil Service.

The firm claims its corporate training campus in Mysore is the largest such facility on the planet.

When built, the new clock tower will have 19 stories which will include meeting rooms, a visitor lounge, dining facilities and viewing galleries.

It will also be digital, unlike its clockwork rivals.

  1. By the time it’s finished, it will probably not “chime” but play recordings of a loud-mouth imam calling everybody to prayer…

    • except that infosys was founded by, and run by, hindus. on top of that india’s government is ruled by a hindu nationalist party. and hindu nationalists don’t like m00sleems very much.

      but then perhaps you are one of the legions of people in the west who, in their ignorance, simply lump together everyone from morocco to indonesia.

      why would you care anyway? india isn’t a white country, and you believe in leaving non-white countries alone, right?

  2. DIgital Transformation

    In its purest sense we see Digital Transformation as the changes that must occur when a business moves away from a physical task. –

    The clock must symbolize their success in replacing ‘people’ and their jobs, with technology.
