Strong growth in India’s ICT sector

The industry impacts India's GDP by around 7.5% and employs close to 2.8 million employees, with an additional 230,000 employees expected to be added in fiscal 2012.

The telecommunications sector in India is the second largest in the world and on a growth track. According to Business Monitor International (BMI), India is currently adding 8-10 million mobile subscribers every month. It is estimated that by mid-2012, more than 80% of the country's population will own a mobile phone. According to TRAI, up to January 2012, India has 936 million telephone subscribers with 904 million mobile subscribers with a tele-density of 78. The India mobile handset market, that includes feature phones and smartphones, will grow at over 30 percent during 2012 to touch revenues of Rs 40,000 Crore (USD 8 billion).
