Internet accounts for 3.2% of Indian GDP: Google

Head of Google India, Rajan Anandan has claimed in a session in New Delhi that 3.2% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in India is raised through internet. The India Chief of the internet giant was speaking at a session at the 11th India Today Conclave, last Friday in New Delhi.

The topic of this session was 'Who will win the web'. The two most successful webs in India, Google and Facebook were represented in this discussion.

It was a session to come to a consensus that who will emerge victorious in the web wars in India. Facebook India head, Kirthiga Reddy was present there to compete with Google on the topic.

However, Anandan kept the internet users in the sovereignty status and pushed that it was useless to argue which company would emerge the winner in the internet war. Undoubtedly, India is an emerging country in web use, where number of users is growing in a fast rate.

According to Anandan, mobile internet, video content, social networking and e-commerce, these four big online facilities are used by maximum number of Indian web users.

The Indian Google head said “I expect mobile internet users to cross the 1 billion mark in four years, out of which 200 million will be from India.”
