The Prime Minister has rightly said that data and demographic dividend present a huge opportunity for India. Digital India has now completed six years and the use of online services has been speeded up by the pandemic, which necessitated social distancing. Our demographic dividend is ideally suited to maximize the continuity of digital services in critical socioeconomic areas like healthcare and education. Broad and inexpensive access to digital money and phone-based transactions could open the door to financial services for millions of Indians without traditional bank accounts. This will enable our economy to grow increasingly connected, facilitating trade and market integration. That is precisely what nation-building is all about.
