Call for Papers:
The Digital revolution is here and the fact that it touches every aspect of our life. Be it personal financial transactions, personal financial management, healthcare, education, corporate financing and investments, public procurement, collection of taxes by government and public financial management. The digital economy is an offshoot of Internet and has brought significant benefits to economies and societies. Developing economies are learning from the developed ones and the impact of innovations in policy making is being felt by all. The initiative to make India digitally connected were sown in the early 90s and 2000s with the introduction of a number of diverse but disjointed e-governance programs. However, these resulted in limited impact on citizens. India was ranked 118th globally (out of 182 countries) in the egovernment rankings, by UN in 2014. Since 2014, with an unprecedented mandate and a clear vision, the current government is pushing ahead the Digital India initiative, which has the potential to transform the lives of citizens across the length and breadth of the country. This time, digital India differs from previous efforts as it provides a combined vision and a comprehensive execution plan, bringing together various departments as well as existing and new programs that are monitored and influenced centrally by the government. The key to the vision of a Digital India is, technology. Social Media, Mobility, Analytics and Cloud are the foundations that will enable the Digital India visions of providing “governance and services on demand” and “digitally empowering citizens” and support the social inclusion schemes being launched by the government. Along with the public sector, the private sector will play a significant role in fulfilling the vision of Digital India by providing the last mile access, location specific Wi-Fi access (e.g., schools, universities, public Wi-Fi) and development of applications that provide cloud-based services on demand to citizens, like branchless banking, 3 remote health, remote education, skill development and e-justice. The Digital India initiative will, over the next few years, extend the reach of government services and essential schemes to the remotest parts of the country, providing citizen’s on-demand, cloud based services and creating millions of jobs. The conference aims to discuss the evolution of Digital Economy in India and the world, its key issues, the progress to date, implementation gaps and challenges faced.
