Two decades ago, the image of India in the world was one of a country beset with poverty, unrestrained population growth, and substandard competitiveness. Today, due largely to the dramatic growth in the Indian software industry India is an emerging economy with techno-savvy manpower building an impressive IT industry edifice. Parts of india continue to be beset with problems of poor infrastructure and poverty but such an image has clearly receded in the background. Indian software industry has grown more than 30 percent annually for 20 years, with 2008 exports projected at close to $60 billion. These figures shows India is emerging as a world power in Software but situation is not the same with industries.

India is rich in natural resources and manpower. So, the only problem of India being the leading country in manufacturing is its lack of infrastructure and the non-cooperation of the government and everyone here wants to make money in quick succession. Because we don’t adopt easily with new things & changes. Just like others. Here there is less attention given to inventions in manufacturing. A BPO or an IT company merely needs a few computers, few small rooms and huge amount of manpower, not necessarily has to be trained. They could be trained in a month. Whereas manufacturing companies needs small but highly trained manpower, skilled labour, expensive machinaries, huge infrastructure. So, this requires huge amount of investment. Having poor infrastructure has discouraged foreign manufacturers from investing in India. It has been calculated that we need $1 trillion to completely develop our entire infrastructure. Hence there’s a lot of work to be done and people need to be skilled and innovative.

    India and China are the fastest developing countries of the world. India is the world leader of the IT industry but lags quite behind China and South Africa,Brasil,Argentina. This is because of many issues that are currently prevailing in the sub-continent. One of the major issues is corruption. Then government is not taking responsibility of purchasing the land and then giving it to the buyer, which leads to deprive the poor people. If the company gets the land successfully then comes bribery and corruption and the deal gets stuck. Another blockade in the development of industry. Politics and safety reasons are also preventing investors to explore the opportunities that are available along with cheap labor.

  3. Kunal Chowdhury says:

    The main reason behind India not being a major player in manufacturing industry is because of less capable and unskilled worker. Manufacturing industry requires highly skilled worker as compared to IT and BPO sector. Another striking hurdle is that India do not have enough sophisticated infrastructure which is an integral part for a manufacturing industry. Indian citizen are happy to work with low labor intensive job with a descent salary as compared to high intensive labor work in manufacturing industry with low salary.

    And the last player for IT and BPO sector winning the race is because of many MNCs supporting the IT industry whereas resources required for manufacturing industry is in control of government which has always been a sloggy player for Indian development.

  4. Gopal Chandra Khatua says:

    India is now showing the natural resources and performances in software development than any other software development country like japan,chin etc.but even now in India is not improve the software development due to behind a big problem.so people can said this why we can not dominate software industry.so in my view at the highest in industrial we have to dedicate our manpower and government co operate with us for this problem.

  5. Kanishka Sarkar says:

    As an indian its shamefull matter that we cnt be world player especially on IT sector.
    Someone says that “Nothing grows better in the shade of big tree”.Its a time to convert our thinking cause we are Indian.Population increasing day by day thats why a problem will created with the resource.

    India is not leading country in software development in world .Behind this a big problem is proverty of india.There has increasing peoples day by day but there i s not increasing resourse, for this we cant providing money in software development indrutries ,so knowledges software engineers are left india and going to the other development countries.
    One of the biggest reason which the author has missed is the government regulation.
    Still we do not have many private industries. The growth of software industires is also due to its work culture which is not found in other industries.

    software industry is gaining very high popularity as because computer is becoming a very important part of everybody and since it is making our work easier everybody wants to have some knowledge on computer. Students who are not very tallented are joining BPO as it does not require much skills. And since every one have the basic knowledge in computer every comapany is ready to open a BPO to gain very hage profit at a less expense. And even other company are also doing their 70% of work through computer software as it is making our work easier as a result increasing the dcemand of the software company.In order to be a world player in every industry we need to set up new industries at a high scale.

  7. Anup Mondal says:

    Few years ago india is not good development in software. But, now india is most impotant country for sofrtware development.There are many resource (students) in india.But, in now apresent situation there are not sufficient job according to students. That’s why students goes to the abrot.

  8. soumya das says:

    the present fact is telling different story. As we already know about the outsourcing. We are too much involed with the software in present day.
    the abroad companies are giving us projects and we are just surving them. We just getting a number of money but les
    in improvements. They are touching the sky but we are same at our place. We have no such big world leading industries with respect
    to the world. but as the number of the indian populations are hudge we can try to make some big leading industries. Who knows
    after 20 or 40 years we may lead the world.

  9. Md Ismail Sharfi says:

    india is emerging a powerful country in software.we have well skilled engineers in software department this can be concluded by that every year our engineers are placed in international compony like facebook and googles.there are lots of world class software componys in india which is leading the whole world in software department like infosys, wipro ,tcs so we can say we are playing a big role in software world……

  10. Amitkumar Paul says:

    the main things that the reason behind the growth of software companies that, the primary principal to establised this company is very less.if i want to built a car manufacturing industry, then we need more primary principle.in this reason the many software companies were grown in our country

  11. Manika Sikari says:

    computer is one device in our software industries, without computer we can not move in this field.So computer is very essential for us. We can play game,we can listent to music,we can watch movie,we can connect to people through social networking sites.
    And computer helps us in our study as well as.
    Computer has a greate contribution in our modern lifes.
    Besides the good sides computer has its own bad sides
    For using computer and internate we are becoming lazy,we are not using our brains completely,we are not using our memory properly.
    We have become computer dependent.It increase the unemployment.

  12. poulomi das says:

    software is within our bound,as we are very much familiar to it,bt world is not so…to rule over the whole world we have to be much more confident and brilliant.Because rulling the whole world is not a matter of joke..To rule over the whole industry we have to be much more cleaver and familiar to the politics..

  13. nandan kumar says:

    we see the other part that is the industry,what a industry requires is a great amount of manpower and resources,which are available to India,In case of resource it has neither lacked before, nor now.But people here in India wants to make money in a very faster way. They dont want to dedicate their manpower to our society to our industrial Not even our govenment is trying to do so,even they are trying but corruption has covered it.So,in my view we can be at the highest in industrial ,just we have to dedicate our manpower and make government to co-operate with us.

  14. Chandan Jha says:

    we can be a player in industry area also but we should promote our education system to be more practical based and promote such type of courses to adopt different conditions

  15. Abhijit Roy says:

    it is the biggest reason which is missed the government regulation. it has no privet indiustries. poor infirststructure has discurrage foreign manufacture from invasting in india.people here in india wants to take money very firster way but it is not posible.

  16. Arup Mondal says:

    India is the 2nd largest (arguably the largest) populated country in the world,so the problem of manpower has never been the issue for india.So the question can be raised,”why cant we dominate in both industries and software?”.As per my knowledge Indians have always been good in software technology,the problem has been the bright software engineers has the tendency to go abroad for work rather than staying here,be it the attraction of money or fame.The truth is India has not invested enough for industries so that the eligible people could work and get paid well,the reason behind this is poverty.The solution lies within education,if the uneducated people comes forward to get educated,the day cant be far when India will lead both in industry and software.

  17. Sankar Chowdhury says:

    We can’t be word player industry as we are in softweare because In a student in software Engineer after passout if he get better job opportunity in foreign industry then he go for there.Be in foreign company they give better opportunity to built our carrier.The govt. doe’s not invest much mony for developing software industry.So, the govt. need to take some dissision to make better software industry.

  18. Rudraneel Bhowmik says:

    Someone says that “Nothing grows better in the shade of big tree”.Its a time to convert our thinking cause we are Indian.Population increasing day by day thats why a problem will created with the resource.There is a problem with proper environment in our software sector and the employes haven’t the better skils for the lack of our resourse.

  19. Avinash Kumar says:

    If we see just 10 years back we will be able to know that in fields of software, growth of India is touching heights, India is currently walking with the leaders in field of software, just because our central and state both government has done a lot for educating, has co-operated lot for improving the trend and quality of education that tech students are getting, the reason for this is it’s requirement are not too high and also,people are trying to learn and come up with new ideas and thoughts.But now also many parts are lagging behind in this aspect.
    Now if we see the other part that is the industry,what a industry requires is a great amount of manpower and resources,which are available to India,In case of resource it has neither lacked before, nor now.But people here in India wants to make money in a very faster way. They dont want to dedicate their manpower to our society to our industrial growth.Not even our govenment is trying to do so,even they are trying but corruption has covered it.So,in my view we can be at the highest in industrial ,just we have to dedicate our manpower and make government to co-operate with us.

    One of the biggest reason which the author has missed is the government regulation. Still we do not have many private industries. The growth of software industires is also due to its work culture which is not found in other industries. Employees of government sector tend to work only for the work hours and nothing beyond that they have no compititions among themselves. This work culture of software industry needs to be adopted by other industries as well if they want to succeed.

  21. karna saradar says:

    india is now showing good performance in software development then some other development countries like china, but india is not leading country in software development in world .Behind this a big problem is proverty of india.There has increasing peoples day by day but there i s not increasing resourse, for this we cant providing money in software development indrutries ,so knowledges software engineers are left india and going to the other development countries.
