India is at the cusp of becoming one of the leading global economies in the world. The $5 trillion target set by the government for the Indian economy in the medium term is the vision for the massive transformation, which entails structural changes across the board. This is well reflected in a host of initiatives undertaken in the recent past meant to trigger a paradigm shift in the delivery models of services to citizens and creating an inclusive growth environment. Digitisation, as manifested by flagship programmes like ‘Digital India’, ‘Make in India’ and ‘Skill India’, is the cornerstone of this massive social sector revamp drive.
These initiatives embody the spirit of the new age India, which is keen to embrace technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Analytics, Robotics, etc. to give a cutting edge to its social delivery system. In terms of economic benefits, they are meant to pave the way for a leapfrog trajectory for segments like manufacturing where Industry 4.0 regime no longer seems to be a distant reality. The grand vision of Digital India, pursued through multiple yet converging technological programmes, has become an encompassing imperative for all major players resulting in robust public-private partnerships.
