Indian IT Sector Industry

Introduction to the Indian IT Sector in 2024

Back in the 1990s, India was recognized for hunger, poverty, corruption, Kamasutra, and caste disputes but nowadays progress, Doctors, Engineers, intellectuals, business tycoons, unicorns IT specialists, and especially the IT Sector are some identities of India, said by Amitabh Bachchan not long ago. 

For me, it is quite the right thing. Within the last 10 years, the Indian economy emerged as the 8th biggest economy in the world. India will be in G5 countries in the coming five years.

The Indian IT sector offers a huge amount of services including software development, IT consulting, digital transformation, and many more things.
