Additionally, the development and auctioning of the 5G spectrum, incentivizing the AI, EV and digital transformation space will contribute significantly to the Digital India mission.
The government’s stance on the Block chain technologies and the implementation of digital rupee using block chain and other technologies will give a big boost to the tech eco-system of India. We perceive this move to be a big positive push for the government’s “Digital India” programme.
