India was a Third World Information Technology colossus by the year 2000. In 1998/99, it exported an estimated US$2.2 billion-worth of software and produced more than 700,000 computers for the home market, worth over US$1 billion. Such success has encouraged many other developing and transitional nations to see India as an IT model that must be understood and imitated. This chapter explores IT production policies in India and their impact from the 1960s to the 1990s, and draws some policy lessons from that understanding. It sets out an IT policy framework that will be used to analyse the Indian experiences.

Keywords:   India, IT policy, information society, industrial policy framework, hardware industry, software industry
