Hardware needs a Task Force – Karnataka does it again

July 21, 2003

I see no reason why people feel hardware cannot be done in India. True, China
has built infrastructure with a vengeance and taken manufacturing away from
Singapore, Taiwan, Hong kong and even Thailand & Malaysia. But Moser Baer,
Celetron, VXL Instruments, HiCal Magnetics and D-Link show that hardware can
be done in India. It just needs a little Policy push; that is where
Karnataka’s Hardware Task Force fits in. Hopefully Karnataka can replicate its
software succes in hardware too!
