Where does India Stand?
India got a 91st position out of 139 countries in the world’s ranking for Digitalization in Economy. The question arise here- Are we really accepting Digitalization? The data simply shows how much India is lagging behind and how much effort does it still need.
However, Demonetization has put more impact towards the dream of digital India. People have themselves came forward and accepted it.
But still, approx 65% of Indian users are using cash as their primary transaction as they are not relying on cashless transactions.
Things changed after demonetization, but not really at the pace one would expect. This slow rate of change is also reflective of India’s exertion to adopt digital banking services.
Why should we have to Accept it?
Indian Government is putting much effort into Digitalization in our country, and it is our responsibility to accept it. It is not just helping you in becoming a part of the digital world and making your life easier, but it is helping the country to grow Digitally Independent.
India has the largest number of youths, and many of them are using the digital platforms as well but using only Facebook, watching Youtube videos or being on Instagram, and other social media platforms do not represent that you are a part of Digitalization. Using online platforms in the account of the country is real Digitalization such as online payments, online booking, Online Business or startups, doing Digital Marketing etc.
This will make our country Digitally Independent, and it is only possible when we become that one.
