IT and ITeS export remittances, which include telecommunications, computer, and information services, achieved an all-time high of $2.619 billion in FY22, a 47.43 percent increase from $2.108 billion in FY21.

The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications anticipated that the $5 billion objective for IT exports will be met by June 2023.

However, it had also warned the government that if agreed-upon incentives are not implemented, regulations are inconsistent, and tax and banking concerns are not resolved, the telecom sector’s exports and remittances may suffer, jeopardizing its digital goal.
