NEW DELHI: India's electronics production is estimated to have touched a whopping Rs 96,950 crore during the year ended March 31, 2003, an increase of 21 per cent over the previous year, according to the IT Department.

During 2002-03, electronics production across various segments like consumer electronics, industrial electronics, computers, software exports and domestic software, stood at Rs 96,950 crore as against Rs 80,124 crore in 2001-02, as per the figures released by DIT in its latest annual report.
