Dewang Mehta, the ebullient President of Nasscom and son of India, had a blueprint for the IT industry and knew how it could be used effectively to change the lives of India’s teeming millions. He wanted the benefits of IT to peter down to the grass root levels and his favorite slogan, “Roti, Kapada, Makan, Bijli and Bandwidth” epitomized the needs of the emerging, 21st century Indian. Mehta had recognized the potential of the software and services segment as a major foreign exchange earner and presented the country’s software industry to the world.
The Dewang Mehta Foundation (DMFT) was created to to fulfill Mr. Mehta’s dreams of an IT literate India. DMFT will support activities that help narrow the digital divide and take the benefits of IT down to the masses of the country.
