Use of IT by Private Firms

                       The services of information technology are being widely utilised by major private sector of the district which are already mentioned in other pages. Moreover, the other firms which can be put into the catagory of fully private  are also using the IT resources which are detailed below.

                        The computer facilities are being used by some printing presses for offset and screen printing (composing and designing). A local daily is also using its DTP facility for its daily publications. Some medical stores of the district are using Personal Computers to maintain the inventory of their stocks. The softwares are developed by the local software vendors on the demand and requirement basis. In banking and financial sector, some of the bank branches are partially computerised. The necessary software are provided either by the bank administration (their HQs) or developed by local professionals. A stock broker shop is also equipped with RO -VSAT (Receive Only VSAT) and providing online stock information directly from Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Also, the computer softwares developed locally are used to ease the routine works  of other activities of the Stock Broker. A large number of shops scattered all over the city and elsewhere, are providing DTP facilities (composing, designing and printing) of bio-data, letters, pamphlets, visiting cards, mannuals, booklets and thesis or project works) for the needy people.
