Digital Skilling And Literacy Coupled With Academic Curriculum Revision Needed For A ‘Digitally Intelligent’ India


Lovneesh Chanana (LC): The importance of emerging technologies and the creation of a ‘Digitally Intelligent India’ are increasingly gaining acceptance. An important aspect is the expectation of huge benefits that can drive the country’s socio-economic growth. It is vital to approach the implementation systematically with a focus on infrastructure, research and development, regulatory framework, skilling and reskilling, work organisations, redesign, standards and interoperability. We have made reasonable progress on creating the foundations of the regulatory ecosystem for the adoption of emerging technologies.

tech2: What new policies do you expect the government to come up with in these evolving areas?

LC: As a country that’s on a growth curve, we believe the focus should be more on*how* than *what*. The distinction between policies for the cyber world and the physical world is expected to gradually diminish. The policy-making process needs to become integrated across ministries. For example, the policies on cybersecurity, public safety, aviation and disaster management should get integrated to offer seamless service. Similarly, the policies on education, skilling, reskilling and employment may also need to get integrated. That’s from a policy perspective. From an operational perspective, the policies on ensuring a unified government interface may assume importance and also need to evolve soon.
