Government saved 27 billion dollars by using digital infrastructure, beneficiaries are getting benefits directly
The government is continuously working to strengthen digital public infrastructure. For this, the government is also taking the help of new technologies. The number of bank accounts has increased rapidly in the last few years. Today 80 percent of people in the country have bank accounts, around 20 percent 7 to 8 years ago.
Economic Affairs Secretary Ajay Seth said that India has saved $27 billion in government schemes through Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI). Along with this, it has been successful in achieving financial inclusion in a short time.
In the last decade, the government has provided help to the right beneficiaries through DBT. This has helped a large number of taxpayers save money.
India has made a significant achievement on the front of financial inclusion. Today, 80 percent of people in India have bank accounts, which was 20 percent 7 to 8 years ago. If work were done at an earlier speed, this figure would be achieved in the next 47 years.
Government using new technologies for digital public infrastructure
New technologies are being used by the government to create digital public infrastructure. The help of cloud platform AWS etc. is being taken by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. To strengthen digital public infrastructure, the government has developed apps like Cowin, DigiLocker, and Umang in collaboration with AWS. This has made it easier for the public to access government services.
Recently, at the G20 held in Delhi, the world was informed about the financial inclusion done by the government in India. On the basis of innovation, India has achieved a record in digital transactions which big countries of the world have been unable to achieve.
