|Karnataka, the Silicon State of India, is home to the largest number of IT Companies in India. Since this sector contributes in a major way to the economic activities in the State, the Government felt the need to announce a policy exclusively for this sector.
Karnataka was the first state to announce IT Policy in the year 1997. This Policy has acted as a catalyst for the growth of IT Industry in the State. The State Government came out with this policy to re-focus on the IT Policy and define it in a way that is most suited for the present.
In order to support the entire spectrum of IT activities in the State, the State Government has announced the Millennium IT Policy. The Policy enumerates the support offered by the State Government for setting up of IT and IT related industries in the State in addition to providing a focus on the e-governance measures of the State.
