Value Addition & Employment Generation in the ICT Sector in India [11 May 2010]

[full-text, 31 pages]



The Information and Communication Technology (lCT) is an important emerging

sector of contemporary India. Its contribution to Indian economy and society is quite

significant. However, scientific collection and compilation of ICT statistics is yet to be

developed in the country for meeting the requirements of development planning. This is the

state of affairs in most ofthe developing countries in the world. To fill this data gap lot of

efforts are being made at the international level. One such effort is the project on "Statistical

Compilation of ICT Sector and Policy Analysis" undertaken by Orbicom, the network of

UNESCO Chairs in Communication. Orbicom is recognized in the international community

for research on issues related to the digital divide, the gender divide, the making of

information societies and ICT markets. Govt. of India, MOSPI has signed an MOU to

participate in this project.


Quantification of the ICT sector has produced valuable insights in developed

countries. Examples include work at the OECD and several developed countries, which

provided detailed statistics and policy-relevant analysis. However, the systematic

quantification of the ICT sector has not been attempted for countries like India. The main

objective of the project is to encourage developing countries like India to generate good

quality official ICT statistics. In this project an attempt has been made to compile data on

the contribution ofICT sector to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employment to the

Indian economy following internationally accepted and harmonized definitions and concepts

emerging form the OECD and United Nations. The data have been compiled from the

existing data holdings ofthe MOSPI.
