Addressing the valedictory of the “NASSCOM Outsource India 2003- The IT Outsourcing and BPO Summit” in Chennai, he said the Government was overwhelmed by the good response from across the globe for the draft policy posted on the web and would soon formulate the policy.
Only in September last, the State Government, which was working to usher in an IT revolution, had announced an IT policy to become the only State to formulate an exclusive policy for IT.
Detailing the developments taking place in this sector in the State, Harinarain said the benefits of IT would soon be felt. IT exports from Tamil Nadu had grown from Rs 3,116 crore in 2000-01
to Rs 5,223 crore in 2001-02, he said, adding that the State was taking all efforts to remain above the national growth level of 30 per cent and capture 20 per cent of the Indian market.
The Government would launch special drives for making its cities vibrant, customer-focused and conforming to international standards to make the entire State a knowledge powerhouse, the official said.
