In the past year government affirmed its commitment to the rapidly growing software industry, establishing goals of training 50,000 IT workers by 2005 and expanding software development technology parks and zones.

Offshore Software Development in the IT world is the term most often used to describe the business of outsourcing software programming and engineering services to contractors or wholly-owned facilities located in foreign countries with lower labor costs.
If we look out the human resource of India so currently it’s possessed tremendous human resources with almost 85% of the population younger than 35. This youthful energy is apparent in the eagerness of high-school and university students to learn computer science and enter the technology arena.
Moreover, the workforce has been underemployed and very easy to train, offering inexpensive, highly skilled labor pools in the field of IT. A joint report issued by Oracle and IBM stated that India could be trained twice as quickly as their counterparts in most other Asian countries.

If we look conduct of language it is another concern, as many major offshore software development locates are primarily English speaking. However, many Indians do speak English fluently and there are even companies in India where English is the primary language as Bangalore and Goa. Other drawbacks that affect the Indian software and web design industry itself are high bandwidth costs and a lack of marketing capability in the U.S. and other target markets.
