IT boom in Indian-Kashmir

Now that people are not shooting each other

 

For years India and Pakistan have been arguing over who owned Kashmir and the region has regularly been turned into an on and off war zone. However now that things appear to be calming down and as a result there is suddenly a booming IT industry starting up.

True its call centres have dormitory facilities but that is mostly so that Indian workers dont have to risk getting shot on their way home from work. But the appearance of IT software and service companies is being seen as evidence of a mini-boom in Kashmir, which has been a byword for economic stagnation and high unemployment.

It appears that the technology companies are coming thanks to Kashmiris who fled the carnage to return to the region once known for its natural beauty and invest in the future of their homeland.
