Digital India is an initiative of the government of India to integrate the government departments and the people of India. It aims at ensuring that government services are made available to citizens economically by reducing paperwork. The initiative also includes a plan to connect rural areas with high-speed internet works. Digital India has three core components.
- The creation of digital infrastructure
- Delivering services digitally
- Digital Literacy
WHAT IS DIGITAL INDIA?
- Digital India is a program to prepare India for a knowledgeable future.
- The focus is on being transformative-to realize IT+IT=IT
DIGITAL INDIA: A PLETHORA OF OPPORTUNITY FOR IT
- Today we are in the midst of a third industrial revolution powered by digitalisation, the first one being driven by steam engines & electricity.
- Digital transformation is causing a massive upheaval in cross-industries & socities. When it comes to the pace of technology advancement we are firmly in the second half of the Chen board where each subsequent advancement is massively more impactful than all previous advancements.
- A key area of investment under this initiative is to improve the government to citizen interface of various service deliveries. The government is serious about automated delivery of services & we can see it in the JAM paradigm -JOM Dhan Yojana for direct benefit transfer based on Aadhar infrastructure & mobile interface for banking.
- The government has saved Rs13,000 crore in booking gas subsidiaries. past fiscal setting technology to use and now proposes to extend the technology to deliver MNREGS subsidies.
- For technology companies. Digital India opens up a plethora of opportunities such as building the broadband infrastructure, creating identity solutions payment systems, web or mobile-based delivery structures and so on.
- Cybersecurity is another key area of focus
- Smart cities are another big area of opportunity for technology companies as part of digital India.
- Closely tied to the digital program is the ‘Make in Inda’ initiative. For India to transition to a digital future a greater proportion of its consumption must be serviced locally.
ACHIEVING DIGITAL INDIA
- The obvious function of Digital India’s is the repetitive infrastructure, but the government’s conception of infrastructure is somewhat lopsided and too broad in some aspects. while not emphasizing others enough.
- The first step has to be to create a robust extensive fibre optic network and to make more specimens available for wireless connectivity. The latter in particular with the use of smart homes and smaller tablets will make expensive projects such as common service centres almost unnecessary.
- A nationwide digital network will require robust software, especially for security. the continental instances of security breaches in developed countries with supposedly advanced digital infrastructure reinforce the view that security is a paramount concern for new digital infrastructure.
ACHIEVING DIGITAL INDIA
- The government of India has initiated a giant loop forward to transform the country into a digital knowledge economy.
- Digital Inda will help in leveraging India’s globally acclaimed IT competence for the benefit of 120 crore Indians.
- It will help in reducing corruption, getting things done quickly & will help in reducing paperwork.
- Some of the facilities which would be available through this initiative are a Digital locker, Education, e-health, Digital signature and national scholarships portal.
DIGITAL INCLUSION INTEGRATED INTO SOCIAL SERVICE
The imperative comprehensive digital inclusion strategies are not solely tried to economic issues but also government agencies their sum e-govt initiative to improve citizen services & optimized operational efficiency.
- Educational content also needs to be available in major Indian languages
- The final aspect of implementing a vision of Digital India should be digitizing the internal working of government not just at the national and state levels, not just at the national & state levels but down to local governments. This is a huge undertaking. Even basic aspects of operations such as accrual accounting are absent- from sub-national tiers of government.
- The second priority is to make sure that there is enough expertise to maintain this infrastructure.
- Third, basic software implementation & educational content should be made available in multiple Indian languages.
As a result, a growing number of services are being offered to the public online these include
- Food assistance
- Training opportunities
- Recreational facilities and programme
- Financial assistance
