India has a vision of becoming a trillion dollar economy by 2030. And technology undoubtedly will play a major role in helping India achieve this ambitious milestone. Every year, different e-governance thought leaders from different states have set benchmarks by carving out a new path on the road to better governance using technology.
Thanks to India’s thrust on technology, India’s e-governance leaders have created a series of platforms for innovation. From Aadhaar to UPI to GSTN to COWIN to the more recent ONDC and Gati Shakti, India is constantly raising the bar for e-governance by launching scalable platforms that can have a transformational impact on India’s growth. Consider the scale: In March last year, UPI breached 5 billion transactions in a month; the CoWIN platform has facilitated and monitored administration of more than 1.92 billion vaccination doses; telemedicine platform e-Sanjeevani has benefited more than 390 million beneficiaries. India has shown the world on how usage of digital platforms can bring scale and speed, and transparency in governance.
This is an exciting time for India, as the country has the opportunity to build a solid digital foundation for every sector that will help it improve productivity and efficiencies in a huge way. At Express Computer, we are excited to showcase exemplary success stories from central and state departments, and share best practices from government thought leaders, in this edition that is dedicated to the innovators and leaders in egovernance
