Hi David!

Interesting reading your take on our press release -- Indian Internet Users Up by 54% -- and thanks for all the easy links given to our web-site. We'll ensure that the gaps which have easy explanations will be filled-in next time we send out a statistical press release. In fact, I appreciate the pointers.

Some quick clarifications:

  • There are 38.5 million Internet Users in India (up to Nov 2005), expected to grow to 45 million by end of the financial year Mar 2005-06.
  • The male-female ratio we used, to be precise, had the decimals rounded off to a double digit number. That caused the error – the correct number is 87% & 13%.

Regards,
Preeti
