It has made life easier and more efficient for us, and India has now become a name to reckon with in the international IT sphere."

Giving an overview on the IT sector, Dr. Lalit Kanodia, Chairman, IT Committee, IMC, said, "There was a need for taking up the issues of IT sector seriously in the current scenario. Software Exports from India were expected to be around $85 billion this year, despite the global meltdown.  Together with domestic software revenues, IT Services constituted 1% of our GDP in 1998, 4% in 2008 and 6% today. If IT Hardware is included, IT constitutes about 7⅓% of our GDP.  This is about half the share of entire manufacturing sector in our economy, and thus underlines the importance of IT to India."
