With more than half a billion internet subscribers, India is riding high on the digital front. All facets of the economy are leveraging technology for wider reach, convenience, and effectiveness. The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 has made Digital and Social Distancing the most important part of our daily life.
The government of India is taking all necessary steps to ensure that we are prepared well to face the challenge and threat posed by the growing pandemic of Corona Virus. The outbreak has led to the unprecedented enforcement of lockdown throughout the country. The National Policy on Software Products-2019 has also a vision to drive the rise of India as a Software Product Nation, so as to make India as a global player in development, production, and supply of innovative and efficient Software Products, thus facilitating the growth across the entire spectrum of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector. COVID-19 has enforced us to consider technology, not just as a tool to ease the lifestyle but additionally has given the idea to go for contactless devices, making the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) as one of the biggest technological advancement we have. With the development of technologies like AI and IoT, these techs will enable us to go for contactless by making such new innovation and will boost the R&D as well as will help in stopping the spread of community decreases.
