Mumbai, Jun 14 (UNI) Maharashtra Governor S C Jamir has lamented that computing in Indian languages has failed to take off.
Addressing the 172th annual general meeting of the Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) here last night, Mr Jamir said billions of dollars worth Software development happens in India, but computing in local language has simply failed to make any progress.
He said India earns billions of dollars through IT business, but computer penetration is just about seven per cent and that too largely in urban areas. He observed that corporate houses and institutions like the Chamber of Commerce, with boundless access to finances resources and technology should come forward and take the lead in providing the necessary impetus to the growth and diversification of our educational infrastructure.
Underscoring Mumbai's contribution in the development of India's Maritime Industry, he said it should continue to steer the ship for reaching new and hitherto un-reached shores of progress.
