Siruseri is a south eastern suburb of Chennai, India in Kancheepuram district, Tamil Nadu, located around 25 km south of the city, along Old Mahabalipuram Road. It is located between Navalur and Kelambakkam.

Siruseri roughly marks the end of the IT Corridor of Chennai along Old Mahabalipuram Road, and it is up to here that AZRB plans to convert the road into a six-lane highway[citation needed].

Siruseri IT park[edit]

Siruseri is home to the SIPCOT IT Park, a technology park. State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Ltd., SIPCOT, has developed an Information Technology Park in 1,000 acres (4 km2) of land at Siruseri Village. The IT park is the largest IT park in Asia about 25 km on OMR from Chennai City, in the Cyber Corridor for allotment of land to IT Companies, who wish to build their own campuses. This park proposes to have all basic infrastructure facilities like separate Sub-Station for power supply, separate telephone exchange and High Speed Data Connectivity. Several IT companies have already booked land in this facility and some companies have already started building their campuses

Academic institutions[edit]

Housing[edit]

An international housing township spread over 100 acres (0.4 km2) with about 6,000 apartments was supposed to come up in Siruseri being built by Singapore Realty Private Limited. But due to legal issues raised by DMK the plan has been dropped.[citation needed]

The areas in and around Siruseri have seen unprecedented growth in the last few years. Srinivasa Nagar is a prominent housing complex in the area, that consists mainly of plots owned by affluent NRIs. With Padma Seshadri school starting a branch in Siruseri and the IT boom, land prices in Siruseri have been skyrocketing and are only expected to go up further.
