The growth of the Internet in India was phenomenal in the last few years. India has emerged as the most favorite country for many global online players, including the eCommerce giant Amazon, eBay and PayPal, who have kicked off their operations in India. Though, unlike US, India is not known for people with regular e-reading habits, the trend is changing now, especially after the massive adoption of Facebook. Mainstream Media print media houses have started focusing on Internet actively and are indulged in producing more content for their online publication than offline.

NDTV started exploring the potential of e-content nearly 10 – 15 years back, said Mr. Chandra. Being the third largest country by the number of Internet users, second largest country by the number of Facebook users and second largest country by the number of mobile subscriptions, the future of digital content industry in India is promising.
