Jan Dhan, Aadhar, Mobile have helped bring transparency: PM Modi

PM Modi announces Umang app: What is it, how it works and everything you should know

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday suggested nations to adopt stricter rules on preventing cyberspace from becoming a platform for 'dark forces of terrorism and radicalisation", while addressing the crowd in the cyberspace conference. "We are using mobile power or M-power to empower our citizens", Modi said.

Though he framed his remarks in a global context, they have a bearing on the legal challenges to the government's ambitious plans to make digitalisation key to a variety of programs. "Alertness towards cyber-security concerns should become a way of life", he said.

"Cyberspace has transformed the world in the last few decades". He said that funds accruing to the District Mineral Foundations (DMFs) should be utilized to strategically focus upon and eliminate major development issues or deficits that these districts now face.

On the benefits of the technological progress, Modi said that the internet has provided "ease of living" to the citizens and that empowerment through digital access is an objective which the government is focused on.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Global Conference on Cyber Space, Modi called for training of "capable professional cyber warriors who would remain alert against cyber-attacks". "It has paved way for efficient delivery and governance". He further said that financial inclusion through Jan Dhan Yojna, unique identification through Aadhaar and mobile phones have helped reduce corruption and bring in transparency in the country.

"Internet is inclusive by nature, not exclusive". Our startups today are looking to provide solutions to everyday problems and improving lives.

"Cyber for All: A Secure and Inclusive Cyberspace for Sustainable Development" is a two-day event which is being organised for the first time in India. I am confident that the global investor community will recognize the vast potential waiting to be tapped from India's startup pool.

Incepted in 2011 in London, the second GCCS was held in 2012 in Budapest with focus on the relationship between internet rights and internet security, which was attended by 700 delegates from almost 60 countries. "Through better targeting of subsidies, the JAM trinity has prevented leakages to the tune of almost ten billion dollars so far digital technology is contributing to more farm incomes".

The conference was being organised to promote the importance of inclusiveness and human rights in global cyber policy. Including about 35 run-up events, more than 10000 delegates from more than 123 countries are expected to participate in person.
