With a score of 1.25, India remains unchanged in 21st place amongst the resource and efficiency-driven economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011. In 2010, India finished 21st with a score of 1.82. The fundamentals of India’s performance have changed very little, and the fall in the score (although not the ranking) is due to the inclusion of new indicators and new weights that affected the relative performance of all countries. However, India’s high global profile in ICT is reflected in an unusually high score for the level of ICT services exports per capita, but the underlying gaps in broadband penetration and other forms of basic ICT (despite continued expansion in mobile penetration and relatively high levels of use among existing mobile subscribers) are clearly visible in the 2011 Connectivity Scorecard results as they were in previous editions of the Scorecard.
