NEW DELHI, INDIA: India’s remotest state Meghalaya, bordering Bangladesh too want technology business pie.

The state government is all set to woo India’s burgeoning ICT sector with necessary stimulus and supplementary policies to fuel industry’s growth in Meghalaya.

Speaking at the ICT event in New Delhi, Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma said that answer to most of the challenges lies in technological solution. “Issues such as in healthcare, education and banking can be addressed with government-industry engagement,” he said.

Sangma also feels that affordability of devices is crucial for better penetration. “Innovation and industry should be pro-actively supported by Union and state governments and there should be synergy in policy decisions,” he stressed.

The disparity and inequality in technology adoption, Sangma said, needs to be addressed. “With supplementary policies of state government, ICT industry can establish its footprints in Meghalaya,” he added. The government, he said, offer tax rebates for setting up facilities in state.
