Karnataka IT Rathna awards
Infosys and Intel bagged the Karnataka IT Rathna awards at the 25th edition of the Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS) 2022 held in Bengaluru, revealed a report. The awards which were given away at the meet have been instituted by the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) and are given to companies that have clocked more than Rs 10,000 crore in exports.
Minister for IT-BT, Science & Technology Dr. C N Aswath Narayan also honored companies such as TCS, Bosch, Mindtree, and 21 others with the award ‘IT Pride of Karnataka’ for clocking Rs 2,000 crore to Rs 10,000 crore in exports.
“Karnataka is clocking exports worth Rs 1 lakh crore annually and expressed hope that it would rise to Rs 1.5 lakh crore in the next three years and also achieve $1 trillion in the digital economy space,” said Dr. C N Aswath Narayan.
However, the Minister expressed anxiousness over the 40% shortage of finances in the current account despite a high turnover in exports from the state. He advised the IT captains to raise exports and reduce imports to maintain a good balance of trade. He also assured the industry that the government will continue to extend its support.
Aravind Kumar and Shailendra Tyagi of STPI, IT Vision group chairman Kris Gopalakrishnan, Additional chief secretary of IT-BT department E V Ramana Reddy, and director Meena Nagaraj were also present at the vent.
