GROWTH OF IT PROJECTS ON IR
 IR’s capital budget for IT is Rs. 273 crore in
 2006-07

 It is projected to increase to about Rs. 900
 crore to Rs. 1200 crore by 2010 – 2011

 To make this scale of operation possible,
 requirement of space and other facilities for
 CRIS and FOIS organization needs to be
 significantly increased
