We are in an era of knowledge revolution where knowledge occupies the centre stage. Its continuous generation, sharing and implementation have become crucial for firms and countries. This revolution is supported by the revolution in information technologies. This present research is an attempt to find out the state of knowledge storage and access in Indian industry. To have a macro view of the situation, industry and academia experts and policy makers were consulted regarding knowledge storage and access in Indian industry. To have the micro view, five firms were selected from both the software and pharmaceutical industries, and four firms from the petroleum marketing sector, thus covering both private and public sectors. The findings were mixed. Whereas access to knowledge is good, in general there is a lack of continuous update of stored knowledge.
