India heading for trillion dollar digital economy: NASSCOM|
GANDHINAGAR, Oct 12: There are tremendous opportunities in start-ups right now in the country and India predicts a trillion dollar digital economy in the coming years, NASSCOM chief Devyani Ghosh has said.
Speaking at the pre Vibrant Global Investors Summit (Vibrant Gujarat StartUp and Technology Summit 2018), Ghosh said: "The information and technology (IT) business in India is a $167 billion industry. "It is predicted to be one trillion dollar digital economy in the coming years."
She said of the $167 billion business, Gujarat's share was only $one billion. "Gujarat is the home of entrepreneurs in the country. How come it has to learn from other experts from outside, whereas it should be the other way round?" Ghosh wondered. "Gujarat's growth is at 10.5 percentage which is nice. Which other state is growing at that rate?" - IANS
