ICT IN INDIA

The wiki aims to provide the insights to Information and Communication Technology in India. India is rising to be a technological hub in the region. With the improvements in technology, access to information in remote parts of the country is made more convenient, enabling them to break free from the cycle of poverty. Together with the advantages, this improvement in technology also has its setbacks, which are eliminated via legislations. Thus, this wiki provides its readers with sufficient information about the ICT statistics in India and educating them of the pros and cons of ICT.   

Under the sector of ICT statistics, we aim to provide readers with the statistics of ICT usage in India over the past 10 years such as mobile usage, internet usage and etc. The term "digital divide" is meant to caution people about the possible or potential effects that the digital revolution may be having on society. Through telecom usage, it plays a significant part in helping the people to have access to information anytime and anywhere they want and foster the dissemination of knowledge and entertainment in all sectors of society.  

Under the sector of Legislations, we aim to describe more about India Policies and Law. There are two subtopics that we will concentrate on, "Policies and laws in India to support the development of ICT" and "efficiency of the laws". India government has introduced a series of policies to promote the development of ICT. As ICT is playing a more and more important role in India, a systematic and efficient legal system is necessary for the future development of India's ICT.

Under the sector of news incidence, we aim to bring to light the breaking news of ICT in India over the past 10 years. There is a saying that ICT are "rich's toy" However via news, we are able to see the initiatives taken by private and government bodies to improve the technology in the sector of education, welfare of the people, entertainment and business, bridging the digital gap. The success of the initiatives and setbacks are also being analyzed. Various types of crimes committed using ICT are also identified to create awareness among readers. 

In conclusion, India is an ideal destination for IT Enabled Services (ITES) due to its distinct advantages which lay in its supportive government policies; infrastructural facilities; low manpower cost; growing knowledge pool; specialised technical skills; higher productivity and quality of service. For example, the people of Indian origin who went to pursue careers abroad are now attracted to work in India itself.
