The 38th lecture of the “Lecture Series” organized by India’s top anti-corruption department Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) was delivered by R S Sharma, Chairman, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in New Delhi today. The topic of the lecture was “India’s Digital Leapfrog”.
Sharma spoke on the development of the digital Aadhaar platform and its reach and significance. He explained the difference between development of applications and the development of foundational digital platforms which use open standards, are open source, and are fully inclusive in nature.
It is said that the development of these platforms enabled the Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi’s vision of Jan Dhan accounts with Aadhaar as a foundational identity platform to transform governance and deliver citizen services in India.
He said that India’s digital development would be powered by the “India Stack”, which he explained in detail, speaking of every layer of this stack and its significance.
The layers include the Identity Layer, the Authentication Layer, the Payments Layer ( including the Unified Payments Interface – UPI as a concept), the Paperless Layer (such as Digital Locker, Digital Signatures) and finally the Consent Layer which protected the data of the citizen.
Discussion of each layer was explained in great detail using many examples during the lecture. He stated that the vision of PM Modi was that many of India’s problems can be solved by use of technology. The lecture was followed by a question and answer session.
