Information Technology-Led Growth Policies: A Case Study of Tami-Nadu


  • Bajpai, N.
  • Dokeniya, A.


The paper argues that the extent to which the benefits of the 'nformation revolution' are actualized and the potential of IT is harnessed will depend on the success with which countries (and regional sub-divisions) are able to understand and incorporate into policy and initiatives these inter-linkages between various components of an IT strategy, as well as the specific impact of IT on economic growth and development. The Tamil Nadu government's IT strategy, although progressive and comprehensive, is deficient in its understanding of these inter-linkages, and needs to address them to ensure that a flourishing IT industry translates into regional development.
