NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that a solution that succeeds in India can be easily applied anywhere in the world as he praised the country’s digital public infrastructure.
Addressing the G20 Digital Economy Ministers Meet in Bengaluru virtually, PM Modi said that India’s digital public Infrastructure offers “scaleable, secure & inclusive solution for global challenges.”
The Prime Minister highlighted several initiatives undertaken by the Centre highlighting India’s “unprecedented” digital transformation over the last 9 years.
“It all started with the launch of our Digital India initiative in 2015. It is powered by our unshakeable belief in innovation, driven by our committment to speedy implementation and motivated by our spirit of inclusion,” he said.
Giving a few examples of such initiatives, PM Modi said the government is building Bhashini, an AI powered language translation platform which will support digital inclusion in India’s diverse languages.
The Prime Minister also said that his government has created an online global public digital goods depository – India Stacks – to ensure no one is left behind.
Speaking about India’s digital transformation, PM Modi said that today India has over 850 million internet users enjoying some of the cheapest data costs in the world.
“We have leveraged technology to transform governance to make it more efficient, inclusive, faster & transparent,” he said.
He said that over 45% of global real-time payments happen in India and over 10 billion transactions happen on UPI each month.
PM Modi said that India has used the power of JAM trinity – Jan Dhan bank accounts, Aadhaar and Mobile – revolutionise financial inclusion in India.
“India is an incredibly diverse country with dozens of languages. Home to every religion in world & innumerable cultural practices. From ancient traditions to latest technology, India has something for everyone,” he said.
PM Modi said that with such diversity, India is an ideal testing lab for solutions.
