  • This is very surprising how every IT minister shamelessly start claiming the growth when they provide zero support to freelancers and IT companies other then burden us with more paperwork. Even they don’t know if we chose not to tell them we are providing IT support services.

  • What actions will be implemented to start seeing results in one month, three months and six months from today. Can we have visibility of this?
