WEF  Global Information Technology Report

India is down four places this year, at 54th

Three PCs and only seven Internet users for every 100 inhabitantsLike China, India ranks low (114th) in individual usage because of spotty ICT penetration. Notably, and despite a two fold increase, there are fewer than three PCs and only seven Internet users for every 100 inhabitants, corresponding to 94th and 99th, respectively.

India’s business readiness (27th) is impressive, thanks to high quality management schools (12th), significant corporate spending on R&D (29th) and a broad base of suppliers. This results in high ICT usage by businesses (30th), with a strong capacity not only to adopt new technologies (26th) but also to innovate (35th).
