By TIOL News Service

NEW DELHI, JAN 25, 2023: THE first India Stack Developer Conference that will dwell on ways and means to ensure wider adoption of India's digital goods all over the world will be held, here today.

It will be attended by over 100 digital leaders from the Industry, Government, start-ups and unicorns and the academia. Delegates from G20 countries and G20 Secretariat have also been invited for the Conference.

Briefing reporters about the Conference, the Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Rajeev Chandrasekhar said that it will provide a platform for the Industry and developer community to explore ways to develop a robust start-ups and innovation ecosystem within the country and also take India stack products to other countries.

He said India Stack is a multi-layer cluster of digital solutions - Aadhaar, UPI, Digi Locker, Co-Win, GeM, GSTN that have played a significant role in the digital transformation in India. "Post Covid, India has emerged as a preeminent nation in use of technology for development and governance-at a population scale. Our focus is now on to broaden the dissemination of our digital goods within the country and widen their adoption outside."

In reply to a query, the Minister said, "We believe in the principle of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (the world is one). Those countries that are keen on following India's lead can adopt India Stack according to their needs."

The Minister said India Stack will be one of the focus areas at the World Government Summit 2023 which is being held at Abu Dhabi next month.
