Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi envisages to make government services available on mobile phones and has asked the Communications and IT Ministry to work on the same. Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad revealed it while delivering the inaugural address at the three-day CyFy conference 2014, the India Conference on Cyber security and Cyber Governance.

As part of the Digital India Plan, government plans to bring health, education, government services and retail services into the hands of the common man by enabling the access through mobile phones. Government plans to spend about INR 21 Billion to lay the foundation for the Digital India.

Government has been actively promoting the Digital India Plan and has called in different stakeholders to make this into a reality. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, recently met Mr. Modi in this regard where he expressed his interest in working to get India Digitally connected. At present, India has about 100 Million plus Facebook users.

While government plans of achieving a free and unrestricted Internet era, it is concerned about the security and stability of such plans. It believes the right policies and regulations can bring structure and security to such plans..
