Impetus on emerging technologies will turn India into a digital society: BVR Mohan Reddy, Cyient


India Budget 2018

BVR Mohan Reddy

I am delighted to see government’s increased impetus on emerging technologies to help India turn into a digital society. The investments in research, training and skilling in AI, robotics, digital manufacturing and IoT will pay rich dividends by creating new jobs and re-skilling the existing workforce.

I applaud the initiatives to improve education and skilling of 50 lakh youth by 2020 and to provide research facilities to 1000 brightest engineers of the country at the premier institutes every year.

The massive health scheme aims to cover 50 crore beneficiaries. Though ambitious, this programme can be transformational and can certainly pave the way for ‘ease of living’, provided the budgetary allocations and implementation are well-chalked out.
