Paving the Way to a ‘Digitally Advanced’ India

Digital India aims at building a digital infrastructure for the country so that the government can deliver all of its services to people through online medium. Though India is globally acknowledged for its IT competency, a larger part of the country is not yet aware of the internet and digital world. Hence, this ambitious plan focuses on improving the state of digital literacy in India, reducing paperwork and getting things done in a better way.

Digital signature, digital locker, e-education and e-healthcare are some important resultants of the campaign. It is slated to be completed by 2019.

In the meet held at Silicon Valley, the digital giants gave a ringing response to Digital India. They also agreed to endorse it. Microsoft plans to partner with the Indian government to provide low-cost broadband services to 50,000 villages of India. Its CEO Satya Nadella also said that he will announce cloud computing from various data centers of India. The CEO of chip making giant company Qualcomm, Paul E Jacobs, appreciated Modi’s effort to make India more digitally sound. He said that his company will invest $150 million to support Indian tech-startups and the companies in Internet-of-Everything (IoE) ecosystem. To support the Digital India campaign, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg changed his profile picture to a shade of tricolor and so did Narendra Modi.

Digital India is a major initiative towards making India digitally advanced. This is also going to affect the real estate sector in a better way. Homebuyers are now going online to search for their homes, portals have been made for brokers and developers, online solutions are available to cater to all needs of the homebuyers. This concept is going to be a milestone in the history of digitally advanced India.
