PM Modi commends IT sector for 2% growth amid pandemic

New Delhi, Feb 17 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended NASSCOM Technology and Leadership Forum 2021. The event took place via video conferencing on February 17. While addressing the event, PM Modi said, “At a time when every sector was affected due to coronavirus pandemic, you achieved a 2% growth. It is commendable if India’s IT industry adds 4 billion dollars to its revenue at a time when suspicions of de-growth were being cast.” “There were reasons that IT industry couldn't get benefits from large domestic market of India. Due to this, digital divide kept widening in India. In a manner of speaking it was ‘Diya tale andhera’. Policies of our government reflect how we changed this approach in past few years,” he added.
