Addressing an international information, communication and technology (ICT) summit of the Commonwealth countries here, Maran said: "The software and ITES exports from India are expected to cross $100 billion by the year 2012."

President APJ Abdul Kalam, who inaugurated the event, said: "The telecom revolution in India has opened multiple windows of opportunities and the benefits of this revolution are in the process of percolating to the vast majority of our villages."

The president told the attending ICT ministers, dignitaries and high commissioners from around the Commonwealth that the benefits of the growth of the ICT industry can be brought through the implementation of a bandwidth, which is "a demolisher of imbalances".
