Sify.com: The Union Budget is the biggest annual business event in India. On February 28, Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram (left)will be presenting the Budget 2006 in Parliament. It will be live cast on TV channels, and all websites and wireservices would be picking up the important points live. SifyMax, the broadband portal from Sify, would be webcasting the budget presentation live. SifyMax has tied up with the government-owned National Informatic Centre for this, which is a first.
Surya Mantha, Sr. Vice President, Interactive Services, Sify Limited, said, ” We are extremely happy to bring the Union Budget 2006-2007 live to a global audience through a webcast on SifyMax.in in association with the NIC. We will also be the only consumer portal to provide budget news and analysis in five Indian languages; Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. We have taken the lead in developing multi-lingual versions of our popular portal as we believe that content in Indian languages is crucial to getting many more Indians to access and use the Internet.” The budget presentation will start at 11 am (IST), on Feb 28.
I should say that SifyMax has been aggressive in tying with event partners these days. For instance, the Lakme Fashion Week 2006 which it will webcast. Now Union Budget 2006. Way to go!
Update: Indiantelevision.com reports that MSN India is also webcasting the Union Budget live. The live webcast is available on www.msn.co.in from 11 am IST onwards. MSN India is presenting this live webcast in association with LIC. MSN is also providing users the option to catch up with the recorded version, which will be available for the next couple of weeks.
