Amid all our focus and efforts in staying safe, what we perhaps missed celebrating is an important landmark -- 1 July 2020. It was the fifth anniversary of the Government of India’s commencement of the ‘Digital India’ campaign. What we did, however, is far more significant, colossal and emphatic. The government made Digital India the key apparatus in keeping its citizens, empowered, secure, healthy and taking the country’s economy forward. The country’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of India, estimates that by 2025, payments through digital platforms will jump to 1.5 billion transactions, or ₹15 trillion a day. The daily transaction averaged about 125 million before March 2020, much of it powered by the government’s famed United Payment Interface, or UPI. To track citizens’ health and monitor the spread of the pandemic, the government launched the Aarogya Setu, having a download hit of more than 127 million times, a testimony of how Digital is transforming India rapidly.
