Govt help must for IT growth, says Infosys


Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function to mark the deployment of CISF at the Infosys campus, Board Member Mohandas Pai said Bangalore would register a growth of 20 percent from last year figure of Rs 58,000 crore. To a query about states like Kerala and Orissa aggressively marketing their IT industry, he said government should come forward and set a target of Rs 1,00,000 crore of software exports for the next two years. Such targets would help instilling some enthusiasm in the industry.

Currently, six lakh people in Bangalore are working in IT out of the 70 lakh population, he said.
