Snippet from the article

  • The total number of workers in all possible forms of IT-related jobs in India comes to less than a million workers – one-quarter of one percent of the Indian labor force.
  • India is as yet a minor player in world trade, contributing less than one percent of world exports.
  • No safety net exists for the poor against the major disruptions and hardships of restructuring
  • Slow processes of democracy in India
