Prime Minister Narendra Modi today devised an unusual equation to describe the future of the country.
"IT + IT = IT", which means "Information technology + Indian Talent = India Tomorrow" was proposed.
India needs to embrace technology in a more collective manner than in a piecemeal fashion.
It also must be embraced by all sections of society for it to have real benefit,
Embracing technology can't happen if only a few people are keen on it. The scale must be larger.
The PM addressed what he called the "mindset issue".
Mindsets have to change, that will be the beginning. However much we automate things or introduce technology, if mindsets don't change nothing will happen.
E-governance is easy, effective, and economical. It's also environment friendly. Paperless offices will benefit the environment.
Recently the Supreme Court's ICMIS, a digital service was inaugurated which will enable people to file complaints online.
Emphasizing that the need of the hour is to focus on application of science and technology, the PM indicated the digital route the SC is taking is a step in the right direction.
