July 07, 2017


           Digital India a term mush obscure a few decades earlier has seen a sudden surge. In this article we shall be discussing the few schemes under this major heading, we will be dividing the schemes into sections and analyse all these with due diligence. We will be propounding the reports, the success ratios and the failure ratios of NDA-I' s schemes. Aadhimarg Group is indeed delightful in publishing this article, for this will be a special one to not only the few of us but the many other readers, for this article is being published on the 200th day anniversary of Aadhimarg. We thank you all for your constant support and endeavour. Read On!

Digital India Campaign:

           Digital India campaign , nearly 50+ schemes have been launched since the inception of this programme since the year of 2014. With the motto, "Power to Empower" this campaign has proven that it is not a governmental initiative but instead a pan-India appeal which induces the commoners to join the campaign and together promote this collective sense of nationality.

This campaign was welcomed by the digital heavyweights like Mr.Nadella and Mr.Sundar Pichai, the CEOs of Microsoft and Google respectively. The campaign has brought drastic changes in the sphere of digital connectivity. Modi and team had earlier propagated this idea with dearer vision and productivity. But the real question is, is this a move deserving an applause ? Well you will soon be able to find the answer for yourselves. 

    1. Digital Booking:

                 The Digital India Campaign has done simple reforms primarily from the root post. The ex-ante stand were the earlier governments did not provide access for any bookings through mobile apps and online transactions have been vice versed by the present NDA-rule. the entire process of removing dilapidated systems through modernisation and innovation increases productivity and cheaper costs . The simple reform which the P.M focussed through this campaign was the process of online reservation systems. These systems primarily include the following ideas:
  • Booking of LPG cylinders through mobile-applications
  • Acquiring status of property registration 
  • Email notifications for ITR submission and other schemes of the government
  • Status update and payment of Traffic regulation fees online.
  • Launching of the IRCTC app for improvised booking experiences
  • News updates from the government
  • Filing of tax returns online 
In further triance , online propaganda of crop health to seed procurement, soil health, use of fertilisers and pesticides — farmers all around the nation have been equipped with the ability to get information from experts . The group, ‘Young Innovative Farmers’, set up by Gurdaspur Agriculture Development Officer Dr Amrik Singh on August 15 last year has mentioned that the opening up of National Agricultural Market (NAM) has helped increase the farmers' revenue by nearly 60%.

These initiatives have received laurels from world leaders. This scheme according to government sources and other analysts at aadhimarg and outside have costed the Indian economy more than 500 crores for the first quarter. The government will indeed take a lot more time to reap the actual benefits of this scheme , but the benefits are fruitful .

     2. National Informatics Centre (NIC) :

               The second initiative where the government announced the setting up of a National Informatics Centre in Odisha and eight new software technology parks with an investment of 78 crores each and also approved the setting up of more than 60 other such software tech parks in and around the country. These centres will help in resolving the much needed cyber protection for our country . The word "Digital India" can attain sustainability only if we are encrypted and are in possession of protectionism towards the ideology of cyber crime in the IT world. This menace  of cyber crime can be altered with good Informatics Centres .

The data shows that India was attacked by Pakistan a record 370 times in the cyber arena in the year of 2015. Moreover 11592 cyber crime cases were filed throughout the nation and more than 2 lakh computers have been attacked by ransomware around the nation. Indeed this scheme will help in preventing a national downfall or simply the destruction of the sovereignty in the cyber arena. 

        3.UIDAI Scheme:

                       The government has made it compulsory to link all PAN cards with their respective aadhar IDs for the primary reason to create a nationwide collaboration process of promoting Digital innovation . The Indian economy is currently undergoing a decisive style of appeal, where the government is interested in creating pan India subjectivities like the Goods and Service Tax, the aadhar scheme, the demonetisation and much more. Aadhar Scheme has more than 1.14 billion user base or approximately covers 91% of the entire population. This scheme was considered the most ambitious programme for a pan-national coverage.

The scheme has focussed on improving the overall transparency in the Indian sub-continent. The UIDAI scheme is the world's largest pan-appeal scheme in the world. This scheme has contributed significantly towards the "Digital India" campaign

          4.  The Payment of Wages Bill, 2017:

The Payment of Wages (Amendment) Bill, 2017 was introduced in Lok Sabha on February 3, 2017 by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Mr. Bandaru Dattatreya. The Bill amends the Payment of Wages Act, 1936. Under the 1936 Act, all wages must be paid either in coin or currency notes, or both. However, the employer may pay his employee’s wages either by cheque or by crediting it into the employee's bank account, after obtaining his/her written authorisation.

 But with the passing of the new bill, all wages paid to government officials and employees from the date of the bill's enactment must be transferred only through electronic means.


                 After our scripture at Aadhimarg Group's special edition of today's blog, I have covered the epitome of the ubiquitous ideologue "The Digital India Campaign". This campaign by far has been one of the most successful schemes available. These schemes will indeed hit the roots and take an obscuring value of time, but then, these schemes will help in improvising the Digitalisation process of our country. Aadhimarg Group is delighted to accede that Modi truly is the father of the Indian Digital Era. He is definitely the Vajpayee of Digital Highways and you (the reader) do posses the ability to judge the success of this scheme now . We at Aadhimarg are eagerly awaiting for a response so that we can serve you all .  Jai Hind .
