The paper describes how Information Technology (with reference to Indian Context) can be harnessed for re- skilling and re-training of the existing work force to make them more productive and use the technology and creativity for better product design with reduced design life cycle. There are 10 new technologies i.e. Digital Subscriber line (DSL), Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), Extensive Markup Language (XML) , Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Transmission Control Protocol /Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) , Fire Wall , Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing and Open Source Operating System (Linux) that will be pushing Internet and Web enabled application. Taking the case of India, to become a software super power India has to develop professionals of international calibre for software development, content creation and services management. The new IT policy enabled India to generate the necessary technical manpower for the development of software using the multi-sector resources. The Government made necessary facilitation for the private sector participation in creating the human resources, and to ensure quality of the human resources, there are appropriate quality assurance schemes positioned to inspect and monitor these institutions (private and public) and introduce standard assessment and evaluation systems for assuring quality education in the IT sector. These policies have worked well in terms of producing large amount of manpower to fulfil the requirements of the software industry. India has used the e-talented manpower availability as the economic advantage for positioning itself as software super power in the global scenario. All the multi-national companies have opted to open the software development centres, design centres and service centres in India to take cost advantage of skilled human manpower for their economic advantage. This has improved India's economic position in terms of monetary in-flow and export of goods and services.
