"The policy targets to achieve a goal of creation of 10,00,000 jobs by 2017, and additional 25,00,000 by 2025," the draft said.
According to the draft policy, the government has promised that it will create an "enabling framework for inclusion of Indian software product in government procurement" and promote their usage "in strategic sectors like Defence, Atomic Energy, Space, Railways, Telecommunication, power and healthcare etc".
Among various measures, the government aims to leverage the start-up India initiative under the proposed policy to ensure ease of business and to address concerns that may be specific to the software product industry through an Inter-Ministerial Coordination Group.
The draft policy has provision to create a specialised talent pool of 10,00,000 professionals by 2025 conversant with nuances of software product development that can support the growth of software product industry.
