Net user base to touch 17.8 million in 3 years: study

The active Internet user base in India, estimated to be 3.2 million for the year 2000-01, will grow over five times to touch the 17.8 million mark in the next three years. The total Internet usage base in India will go up from 7.1 million for the year 2000-01 to about 40 million by 2003-04 in the same time. These were the findings of “Internet.In.India”, a study conducted by Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB) on the current and future business opportunities on the Net.

The study defines the active user as a person who has accessed Internet in the last three months for at least 2 hours a month on an average and uses the Net for purposes other than just for e-mail.

The year 2001-02 will see the total Internet users at 12.5 million, with the active user at 5.6 million and for the year 2002-2003 the total Internet users will be 22.4 million, with the active users comprising about 10.1 million.

The study points out that the active users have more dispersed distribution with 75 per cent of them coming from the top eight metros and 83 per cent from the top 16 cities.

According to the study, the top 16 cities account for 3.16 million claimed users and 1.37 million active users. According to government estimates there will be one million cyber cafes by the end of 2005.
