Infosys Technologies co-founder and chairman Nandan Nilekani on Monday said India’s digital infrastructure will play a major role in reviving its economy.

Nilekani was addressing members of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Ficci) at the national executive committee meeting on ‘Digital India and its Impact on Economy and Industry’ held in Bengaluru.

He said the country has witnessed dramatic transformation through Aadhaar-based e-KYC and online payments, and added that India’s digital data architecture will set the tone for business revival. “Once data becomes the basis for decision-making in many sectors, you will see a big change,” Nilekani said.

“World over, data is becoming central to people and government. Data empowerment architecture in India will benefit all segments of the economy,” he added.
