The Year 2000 bug
"This Budget is software friendly. The government has reinforced its confidence in the software industry and we are confident of achieving our software export target of Rs 17,500 crore in 1999-2000. I welcome the government's decision to allow all expenditure incurred by the corporate sector in making their systems Y2K compliant to be allowed as revenue expenditure."
-- Dewang Mehta,
president, National Association of Software and Service Companies, and member of the National Y2K Action Force.
