Though the waves of recession and challenges of demonetisation shake-up the Indian Economy, the Indian IT industries seem sound with open source technologies. Red Hat one of the prime open source companies in $ 2 billion dollar pool has spotted India as an inevitable target. Hopefully, Red Hat is looking forward to a speculative target of $ 5 billion dollar by the end of 2020, with India as a major contributor. If it happens, it will be the right dose of stimulus for the Indian Industries that has been affected by the sluggish economy due to recession and demonetisation of high-value currency notes.

Few major projects of Red Hat in India are Bio-metric Identification Program of India government named Adhaar, Railway Information Systems, LIC Insurance, SBI Insurance, The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and many more.
