He also mentioned that while high end technology driven start-ups in service sector  will continue to have  important role in creating  newer business models, widespread spawning of  ICT  based start ups hold the key in providing quality jobs and creating healthy domestic demands, a sine qua non for upscaling the Indian economy. Again these start ups need not be hi –tech entrepreneurs, he said.
