Post #144 C 1 9 HAS ACCELERATED INDIA DIGITAL ASSET | CRYPTO CURRENCY | BLOCKCHAIN
C 1 9 propelled the use of contactless digital technology across India.
The digital-first reset has set the foundations for improving governance.
The country was already on a digital-first trajectory with one of the highest volumes of digital transactions in the world when the pandemic struck, and further propelled the use of contactless digital technology.
The digital reset of the Indian economy has seeped into almost every aspect of life. Almost every Indian now has the digitally authenticated Aadhar identification number. The connection of Aadhar with bank accounts (under a financial inclusion scheme called Jan Dhan), and mobile phones (India has more than a billion mobile phone subscriptions), or what has been called JAM, is the bedrock of much of this reset.
This joint public-private push is making India a digital-first country, resetting the basic life experience and aspirations of more than a billion people.
