Transforming into a digital economy


The Government leads India towards technological capability and transformation by joining MyGov, Government e-Market, DigiLocker, Bharat Net, Startup India, Skill India, and Smart Cities as part of the Digital India program to transform the country into a digital economy. All these steps towards the digital economy have been taken vigorously to help trigger a new wave of economic growth, attract more investment, and generate new jobs in many sectors. However, we also face a major cybersecurity challenge with them. Recently, the Government of India, using Section 69 (A) of the Information Technology Act, 2000, banned 59 apps manufactured and operated by our neighbor China, including TicketLock, ShareIt, Cam Scanner, etc. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has cited data security and privacy concerns as the biggest basis for this ban. Due to the ban on Chinese equipment by India, the credibility of Chinese companies in the global market has been affected and affected. The present era has come as an opportunity for India. Therefore, while holding the pulse of time, India will have to work towards a long term strategy and move towards digitization, only then will we be able to beat China and end our dependence on it forever.
In the year 2015, the Government of India launched a huge campaign called "Digital India" across the country to make government services accessible and accessible to the common man in different parts of the country. The main objective of this was to improve the accessibility of technology and technology to the people of the country. Since then our government has worked on improving internet connectivity and ensured that the internet is easily accessible to remote and rural parts of the country. One of the initiatives in this was to connect rural parts of the country with high-speed internet. The project is run by an organization of the Government of India called Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL). We have set out on the digital path that new threats of the digital world have come to the fore, new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning have also brought new challenges for cybersecurity. Internet technologies have become a fraudulent business for hackers, India's less literate people do not have a cyber-security mindset. But now we need to do something special in this changing era, the government will have to encourage young entrepreneurs in the development of Indian equipment in place of banned Chinese equipment so that they can build a new India by taking new ideas. If seen, for quick construction of any technical project, single-window clearance, availability of funds, and facility of no objection certificate is very important. Our government should work fast in this direction. Currently, the ban on Chinese equipment is a good opportunity for Indian entrepreneurs to fill the void created in the market. If we make new efforts today, on the strength of technically skilled Indian professionals, Hindustan can become the main center of digital innovation in the world.
