The 2011-12 Budget has failed to bring cheer to the Indian IT sector as Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee did not make any major announcements to boost the segment. IT companies were batting for reduced tax rates and continuation of sops under the STPI to help the industry, which is seeing a recovery in demand after almost two years of slowdown.
