The company emphasized the importance of supporting true domestic manufacturers like itself, as the Indian Government places a significant emphasis on digitalization in all aspects of life.

The steps we are taking for this vision are logical, measured, and scalable . We have offerings in both class1 local content and class 2 local content.

To achieve this, we work with many committed domestic component manufacturers and promising technology start up initiatives in the Indian ICT eco system”
The ICT industry is not only driving economic growth but also contributing to social sustainability by enhancing the delivery of education, healthcare, and services to citizens. The industry is transforming social interactions, leading to positive long-term impacts in multiple areas.
During and after the pandemic, ICT played a vital role in connecting people, even when the nation was isolated for an extended period. The education sector has undergone a significant transformation due to ICT, with students now relying on digital platforms for learning. This has allowed for greater access to education globally at a more affordable cost. The telecommunication sector has also seen a significant impact from ICT with the widespread adoption of 5G technology for faster communication. E-health, the use of ICT in healthcare, has the potential to revolutionize the industry by improving information sharing and connecting patients and healthcare providers. Developing countries like India have the potential to adopt e-healthcare in the coming years.
Mr. Dheeraj Puri, Co Chair, North Region Committee (ICC) said that “The revolution in the information and communication sector is making the world united. In today’s world information and communication technology (ICT) is a key parameter for a country’s socio economic development, especially for a developing country like us. India is contributing 13% to the country’s GDP. With the concept of globalization, the cross country transfer of technology with respect to equipment and even manpower has nowadays become much easier. ICT adoption, digitalization and automation provide formidable new opportunities in terms of increased efficiency and productivity, the creation of new services and occupations and increased connectivity across the nation. Market reports shows that countries have started to invest in ICT because the sector can have a substantial positive impact on social and economic sustainability since such investment will lead to annual GDP growth by 0.6% to 0.7% on average, on an annual basis, for each increase of 10% in household penetration”.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend towards digital connectivity and created a technology-driven market for the future. The rapid urbanization of the 21st century, combined with the impact of the pandemic, has significantly impacted India’s digital transformation. Indian companies are adjusting their IT strategies, reducing operational costs, automating processes, and introducing new systems to enhance efficiency, leading to a technologically advanced lifestyle for citizens. Among the emerging technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) is especially noteworthy. IoT is transforming both industrial and consumer sectors by increasing the use of sensors, cloud technology, robotics, centralized tracking, quality inspection, and other advanced technologies, creating a smart manufacturing ecosystem. This results in lower costs, increased revenue, improved safety, security, and quality.
