Quote on Digital India Campaign by Mr. Manoj Kumar, CEO &MD, Ricoh India Ltd

The government is taking a big step forward to transform the country into a digitally empowered knowledge economy. Digital India will help in delivering citizen services electronically and improve the way citizens and authorities transact with each other. With India planning to invest billions in the digital India campaign, a number of opportunities are likely to unfold where Ricoh is aiming to work as a partner. We are active in the space of digitization and in mission mode projects. Recently, Ricoh India has bagged a Rs 200 crore project from the Department of Education, Government of Delhi for the implementation and maintenance of ICT solutions across 1,100 schools in the state. Late last year, the company won a Rs 1,370 crore contract from Department of Posts for the supply of hardware solutions under the latter’s modernization initiatives. Besides, the company was also responsible for some large e-governance projects like e-District in Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu Health project, Karnataka Panchayati Raj project and Chattisgarh’s cloud-based tablet solution. Issues like strengthening net connectivity and bandwidth enhancement across the country and improving e-literacy, particularly in the interiors of the country are challenges which need to be overcome speedily in order to drive better mileage out of the Digital India Program.
