Digital India Week comments

Mr. Keshav Bansal, Director - Intex Technologies.

Digital India is a huge step towards building a truly empowered Nation. The initiative aimed at providing accessibility to essential services will lead to a holistic growth of the country, from literacy to employability to GDP growth. At Intex, the 2nd largest Indian mobile phone brand, we are not just excited but will help support this initiative by introducing technology and products that will be instrumental in bridging the digital divide. Today, we at Intex are even more committed towards supplying to this new demand of digital connectivity. We are proud to be part of this historical moment.

The vision of a digital India is grand. If successful, it could transform citizen access to multimedia information, content and services. It also gives the government access to a great deal of information. However, laying cables doesn't ensure they will be used.​ 
The startup ecosystem is waiting for such initiatives. Absence of startup friendly policies has made many successful startups shift their bases outside India. This initiative can be the start of a big change. I am very optimistic about it.”

 

Mr.  Amit Nath, Country Manager, India & SAARC – F-Secure.

"The digital India initiative is a huge transformation project which will take the country’s economic growth to the next level along with bringing significant employment opportunities. Along with taking this special initiative, it is essential to take the cyber laws and security aspects into consideration. It is certain that cybercrime will be on a rise and we will need to consider whether India is ready & inline to this digital future. Furthermore, the security aspect of the infrastructure is required to be crafted carefully and the positive side is that all these necessary technologies and services exist today. We just have to be certain that they are in place, very much strong and that masses are familiar & savvy with these services being offered to them."
