Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted that India is leading the world in the digital revolution as the government’s commitment to the use of digital technology in welfare programmes and services delivery is changing the lives of the people of the country.
Modi cited digital platforms like Aadhaar, UPI, Cowin and Digilocker as examples of services that have contributed to the ease of living as citizens get services online without going to government offices or approaching middlemen.
Modi launched multiple digital portals at the ongoing Digital India Week 2022, including single sign-in portal Meri Pehchaan, Digital India Bhashini, Digital India Genesis and Chips to Startup (C2S), during an event held in Gandhinagar.
The PM said, “All programmes launched in Gandhinagar are going to strengthen Ease of Doing Business and Ease of Living. They’ll give a fillip to India’s startup ecosystem. India can proudly claim that its not just part of the Industry 4.0 revolution but is actually leading it.”
He also said that the government’s Digital India programme has given relief to the poor from corruption and it is working towards the elimination of middlemen in all fields, adding the introduction of digital technology in welfare services and schemes has brought in transparency in the system.
