INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM TOWARDS

ACHIEVING DIGITAL TELANGANA

ANNUAL REPORT

Information Technology, Electronics &


Communications Department
Government of Telangana
2017
FROM THE
MINISTERS DESK
I am pleased to continue the tradition of releasing the
Annual Report of the ITE&C Department on the occasion
of State Formation day for the 3rd consecutive year. Like
the previous 2 years, the year 2016-17 was a highly
successful one for the growth of the IT Industry in our
State of Telangana. Data from 2016-17 reveals that we
have shown impressive results in terms of IT exports and
employment, and for the 3rd year in a row, the growth is
significantly more than the national average growth.

While we have positive developments of our State on the


one hand, we also need to monitor some of the
worrisome global trends closely. Trends like protectionist
policies being followed in different parts of the World,
growing automation and a drastic decline in the
employability of conventional skill sets, are both
challenges and opportunities for us. So far, we seem to
have managed the challenges well, and I feel confident
that we have the agility to identify opportunities better
than others and maintain our outstanding growth in the
future.

All the Wings and Institutions under the ITE&C


Department have continued to do well during 2016-17,
and establish high reputation among their stakeholders.
T-Hub, TASK, T-Fiber, Mee Seva, to name a few, have Sri K. Taraka Rama Rao
today become national role models being emulated in Hon'ble Minister for IT, MA&UD, Industries &
many other States. The new institution to find place in the Commerce, Mines & Geology, NRI Affairs
list during 2016-17 is SOFTNET, which has made a very Government of Telangana
encouraging beginning by reaching out its services in
large numbers to various user groups.

We are expecting 2017-18 to be the year in which the last


batch of new initiatives that are at the planning stage to
get launched. Some major initiatives that we can look
forward to this year include T-Hub Phase -II, T-App Folio
(m-Governance Platform of Telangana), Mee Seva 2.0,
T-Works, IMAGE towers, to name a few.

The support of the IT Industry and other stakeholders for


all our initiatives has been very commendable. I convey
my appreciation to all of them, and hope to get their
continued cooperation this year also.
