Union Minister for Information and Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Thursday said India’s success is a case study in using technology to transform citizens’ lives and underscored that digital India framework boosted the confidence of a whole new generation of young Indians, a press release said. Addressing World Bank Digital Economy Conclave 2023 on Thursday, the minister said “In 2015, through the launch of Digital India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi set unconventional expectations through three broad goals – technology should improve the lives of citizens, impact governance and democracy and further expand and create an architecture for an innovation economy. Over the past nine years, India has taken a lead in creating technologies as opposed to being a mute spectator and consumer of technology.”
He emphasised the milestones achieved through Digital India in the past nine years, which catalysed the country’s rapid progress towards a five trillion US dollar economy by 2026. “India’s success is case study in using technology to transform citizens’ live,” said MoS Rajeev Chandrasekhar. The statement further added that Rajeev Chandrasekhar also highlighted how digitisation of government services has facilitated the formalisation of informal sectors that now use digital payments and micro-credit. “These services which are part of the India stack are now being offered to countries who are keen on digitising Governance,” the IT minister said, said the release.
