From consumers to manufacturers, the Indian government has exceptionally struggled to empower the country digitally in terms of technology by increasing internet connectivity and cutting the data price for all the segments of society. India alone has far more smartphones than the total population of technology giants like the US. 

The digital India programme wants the digitalization of the entire country and because of that the development will be at a faster pace and in a few years we will be considered the inhabitants of a developed country. This mission cannot be accomplished without the proper guidance and assistance of the government. Therefore, our honourable prime minister has given approval for ‘Digital India’. This programme will have countless benefits and will influence every field of the country.

Under this ‘Digital India’ program government is trying to deliver internet and broadband services to the remotest areas of the country. The production of smartphones along with internet access is a key factor for the growth of India’s e-commerce sector.

Besides online shopping sites and online retail, other fast-growing areas of the e-commerce sector include online deals, online travel and classified listings. Nowadays, the online path is being used for seeking information and making travel arrangements to a great extent. The ‘Digital India’ initiative taken by the government of India has also given a boost to the Indian e-commerce industry. Online shopping has become an addiction with so many online shopping sites coming every other day.   

FACTORS OF DIGITAL REVOLUTION

The digital revolution in India that has occurred in the last 5-10 years is due to the following factors:

Ø  Rise in Income: From 2015 to 2019-20, India’s income per capita has increased from approximately 1 lakh to 1.5 lakh which is about 50% in the last 5 years. This rise in spendable income has led many users to spend their money on smartphones, data and internet related services.  

 

Ø  Demographics: Our country’s youth is much more ambitious, materialistic and ready to spend as compared to the former generations. We are so much more tech-savvy and have fulfilled the huge demand for data usage.

 

Ø  Policies by the Government: The government has strongly supported the public by offering digital-friendly policies such as reducing the license fees, enhancing the spectrum limit, relaxing FDI norms, etc. The government has also emphasized digital banking via reduction in online transaction fees, implementation of UPI and more. Demonetisation in 2016 has also increased the usage of cashless payments and electronic transfers.

 

Ø  Reduction in Hardware Price: There was a time when only rich people can afford smartphones but today they have become affordable and even very important for most people. As the smartphone industries have started manufacturing cheaper products, the demands for smartphones have increased.

 

 

Ø  Cheap Data Price: This has been the other important reason for accelerating the digital revolution in India. The 4G services launched by Airtel, BSNL and Vodafone in 2013-2014 was the beginning. This was truly revolutionized by the Reliance Industries’ Jio in 2015. Jio has offered high-speed data free for months and provided millions of Indians a glimpse of what digital India can look like.
