Technological obsolescence in government services cannot be an excuse for limiting Digital India’s footprint. In this context, the regulatory framework also has to keep pace with the latest global developments. It is debatable whether, as of now, all government agencies and regulators are ensuring that internet-enabled services straddling governance, healthcare, commerce, education, and finance are indeed compatible with today’s phenomenal technological advancements, system design and evolving market practices. Developing a sustainable enabling environment for technological entrepreneurship is key to ensuring that Digital India remains on track, and is not derailed by lethargic thinking processes. All government departments should aim to have robust infrastructure, reliable broadband connectivity, and a stable power supply. That is the least we can do to ensure that Digital India does not remain just a dream.
