In the bustling streets of India’s tech corridors, where innovation meets ambition, there exists a beacon guiding the nation’s voyage into the global market – the Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC). Like the steady hand on the helm of a ship, ESC has been steering India’s electronics and software exports to new horizons since its inception in 1989.

Setting Sail

ESC, an autonomous organization under the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communication & Information Technology, Government of India, emerged as the premier nodal agency to promote trade of Information Technology and Electronics between India and the rest of the world. With a humble beginning and an export performance of US$ 200 million, ESC embarked on its journey with a vision to propel India’s technological prowess onto the global stage.

Charting the Course

Over the years, ESC has assembled a formidable crew, boasting a membership base of over 2200 manufacturers and exporters encompassing the entire spectrum of Electronics and Software Industry. From consumer electronics to computer hardware, from telecommunication products to IT-enabled services, ESC’s fleet is equipped to navigate the diverse seas of technology.

Riding the Waves of Success

Through unwavering dedication and strategic initiatives, ESC has witnessed remarkable growth, steering India’s electronics and software exports to soar over US$ 10.76 billion during 2002-2003. With exports reaching more than 175 countries worldwide, ESC has imprinted the hallmark of India’s quality and competitiveness on the global map.

Exploring New Horizons

Not content with existing routes, ESC has embarked on expeditions to develop new and untapped markets for Indian IT exports. From the tech giants of Japan to the burgeoning economies of Latin America and the Middle East, ESC’s efforts have opened doors to previously uncharted territories, fostering awareness about India’s capabilities and nurturing growth in developing economies like those of Africa.

Navigating the Currents

Beyond charting new territories, ESC serves as a lighthouse, illuminating the path with valuable insights and data. By compiling and maintaining annual export data, ESC provides vital inputs to the industry, enabling them to navigate the currents of global market trends and formulate future export strategies.

Feedback Loop

But ESC’s role doesn’t end with data compilation. It conducts market studies, analyzes market structures, and develops market intelligence to provide actionable insights to its members and the government. By bridging the gap between exporters and policymakers, ESC ensures that the sails of India’s tech exports are always set in the right direction.


As India continues its voyage into the digital age, ESC remains steadfast at the helm, guiding the nation’s tech exports through the ever-changing tides of global markets. With innovation as its compass and determination as its fuel, ESC’s journey is not just a story of success but a testament to India’s boundless potential in the world of technology.
