    Goals / Remit

    NASSCOM is the industry association for the IT-BPM sector in India. A not-for-profit organisation funded by the industry, its objective is to build a growth led and sustainable technology and business services sector in the country.
    Established in 1988, NASSCOM’s membership has grown over the years and currently stands at 1,400. These companies represent 95 percent of industry revenues and have enabled the association to spearhead initiatives and programs to build the sector in the country and globally.

    NASSCOM members are active participants in the new global economy and are admired for their innovative business practices, social initiatives and thrust on emerging opportunities.

    Main EU files targeted

    NASSCOM closely follows developments in the EU’s trade agenda, specifically the EU-India Free Trade Agreement.
    It equally follows policy areas relating to the free movement of skilled professionals (intra-corporate transfers directive) and data (EU Data Security and Privacy norms e.g. General Data Protection Rules / International agreements e.g. Privacy Shield).
