An Overview

State and the IT Industry in India

Using a historical comparative perspective, this paper assesses the role of state (both national and subnational) in the growth of the information technology industry. An attempt has been made to identify the key constraints facing the information technology sector in a highly competitive global market scenario. There have been, however, serious lapses in government policy that never prepared the sector to engage in hardware manufacturing, and India still stands at the low end of the value chain. An interesting development in the sector has been the distinctive role played by a few proactive subnational governments that have recognised the emerging opportunities this sector can provide through participation in both the global as well as growing domestic markets.
