Post-budget 2018 Reaction Mr. Gagan Rai, Managing Director & CEO, NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Limited

This is a budget for the masses due to several reasons. Firstly, 10 crore families will receive health insurance cover. Secondly, thrust on education by teachers’ training on a mass scale. Thirdly, agriculture has been encouraged and focus would be given to double farmer income by 2022. We also welcome the measures that the Government of India plans to undertake to hasten India’s movement to a digital economy.

There will be significant use of Aadhaar numbers even for the businesses, as all business entities will be allotted an Aadhaar like unique ID number.  

The Government has also announced various benefits for students and the education sector in India. This will give focus to digital boards. Allocation of 1 lakh crore rupees in promoting learning based outcomes and research sector will give a further boost to education sector.

Overall, it is a well-thought and far-sighted budget. The masses will greatly benefit from a new ecosystem in infrastructure leveraged on the thrust of using technology as the spine for new India. News Service
