India celebrated the Digital India Week on 1st of July with Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing a number of ambitious projects and services to connect the next 100 billion to the internet. The campaign, undoubtedly has the power to change and transform the future by making India a digitally inclusive society with the power to compete in the global “Internet Economy”.
The Digital India Week cannot be limited to a weeklong celebration but has to be celebrated continuously by the entire ecosystem to work together for the realisation of this dream.
For all these years, we have known government offices and documentation to be associated with thick piles of documents floating around on desks. But with our digitally savvy Prime Minister, things are certainly changing. Recently, Himachal Pradesh became the country’s first state to present a ‘paperless’ budget. Earlier, around 200 copies along with volumes of other documents used to be published during the budget session.
Furthering the e-governance initiative with the roll out of the beta version of the ‘digital locker’ we will no longer see piles of files and clipped paper stacks littering desks. The initiative, labeled as one of the most aggressive aspects of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India program will hopefully usher in a new era of electronically empowering workspaces and less paper.
Evernote, with its ever expanding innovative product range is also celebrating the Digital India dream.
