We want to become a leader in the digital revolution in the world. Today data management and data analysis is the next big thing. Digital payments and new start-ups are a new area of growth in the country and with GST coming very soon there will be more support for start-ups. 1.7 Crore people have downloaded the Bhim app and India’s digital economy will become 1 trillion economy in the coming years. Today, no change can happen without the involvement of people and hence we want more and more participation from the citizens of the country.”
