"The domestic IT industry is expected to grow at 12 per cent over next 4 years, reaching a size of Rs 1.75 lakh crore by 2016, driven primarily by the services and software segments," the BCG-CII report added.

According to the BCG-CII report on IT enablement of Indian business, the domestic IT sector was worth Rs 99,700 crore in 2011 with IT services contributing the largest share at Rs 49,400 crore followed by hardware (Rs 32,500 crore) and software services (Rs 17,800 crore).
