The global financial crisis had worked to the advantage of India due to its slow and steady development and in the near future for every 10 persons who take up jobs globally, six would be Indians, IT major Tata Consultancy Services Limited today said.

The Indian economy had shown signs of improvement and along with it, there were indications that "a lot of technological innovation" was going to happen in the country, TCS CEO and Managing Director N Chandrasekaran said, while delivering the eighth Nani Palkivala Endowment Lecture at SASTRA university here.

India had a "wonderful" software infrastructure and in the field of Integrated Digital Information, the country would become number one in the world, he said.

The top 10 countries that had successfully faced the global economic crisis in the past two years were either fully developed countries or the developing nations, he said.
