“The digital era is changing the city structure in several ways. The fast-changing digital world is affecting the architecture of the city is more ways than one,” said Radulova.
Hyderabad is going through tremendous changes in terms of its IT infrastructure, added Radulova. “Hyderabad is witnessing great transformation on different levels,” said Radulova adding that India is a very important destination for investment in the IT sector.
“There have been substantial changes in the use of internet in India. However, the spread of computers in this country is not happening uniformly. The rural-urban divide in terms of computer literacy and internet connectivity in India is huge,” said Radulova.
Elaborating on the statistics showcasing the internet and mobile service costs of a wide range of the most and least advanced countries, Radulova said that India has tremendous potential to sustain growth momentum as a forerunner in the IT industry.
“The IT industry in India is already strong but in terms of development of internet use, there is a wide disparity amongst several cities in the country,” said Radulova.
