New Delhi: Software services industry body Nasscom on Sunday said its members are keen on partnering the government for engaging in IT-led projects under six key areas including education, energy, food and governance.
"We would like to partner the government on six transformational IT-led projects in six areas, what we call EFGHI - i.e. education and energy, food, governance, healthcare and infrastructure," TCS chief executive and managing director N Chandrasekaran said at a Nasscom event.
The projects should be selected based on their fit with the government's priorities for the nation and the industry's expertise and experience, he added.
The former Nasscom chairman said the project should be completed in a tangible timeline of 12-18 months.
This will be a very important step for the IT sector's journey towards building a smart nation, he added.
