Information, Communication & Tech
The supply and use of information and communication technologies play an increasingly important role in growth and competitiveness of the Indian economy. ICT has shown its potential as a driver of growth by influencing the traditional process of “capital deepening” (i.e. the increased intensity of physical capital per unit of labour). For India, ICT has been widely regarded as an instrument to “leapfrog” the nation into the forefront of the global knowledge economy. In this context research at Indicus is increasingly focusing on the policy, regulatory and competition issues for ICT.
