India's telecom equipment exports likely to be Rs 22k in FY13
New Delhi: The country is estimated to have exported telecom equipment worth Rs 22,000 crore in 2012-13, the Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council (TEPC) said on Thursday.
"India has exported telecom equipment to the tune of Rs 16,350 crore till December 2012 and it is proposed that during 2012-13, the exports would be worth Rs 22,000 crore," TEPC Secretary R K Pathak said during an event here.
He added that of the overall telecom exports, around 50 per cent comprise handsets.
The government has set up TEPC for promoting export of equipment and services.
In order to give exposure to small and medium companies in the electronics sector, TEPC will be taking some such firms to Singapore for CommunicAsia 2013 that is to be held from June 18-21, 2013.
"The event provides a meaningful platform for discussing critical issues relevant to the ICT sector. Its platform is also ideal for Indian companies looking to venture beyond the home grown market to the Asian region and the world," Pathak said.
