The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has urged State Governments and education institutions to offer courses in e-Publishing in order to promote e-Publishing in India. While addressing a conference on Publishing BPO services, Gopal Srinivasan, Chairman, CII-Tamil Nadu State Council, stated that courses, which are covering aspects like langauge grammar, software, art, semantic analysis and lexical analysis could help aspirants enter the e-Publishing industry.
According to report from research firm Valuenotes, the Indian e-Publishing industry will grow at 35 per cent year to year to be worth $1.46 billion by 2010. Currently, the size of the industry is estimated at over over $500 million and employs about 30,000 people, most of who work out of South India. In this result, the Indian companies are planning to offer value chain from the low end data entry and typesetting work to the high-end copy editing, content development and media services.
