“India Stack was envisioned by PM Narendra Modi and this annual conference is aimed at expanding adoption of India Stack in various states and countries around the world, that want to build Digital Public Platforms,” said Minister of State for IT, Rajeev Chandrasekhar.
The first India Stack Developers Conference focuses on lending India-made technologies and platforms like UPI and Aadhaar, that are open source, to the countries that want to adopt it. The government is not looking to monetise through this initiative, mentioned the MoS while briefing the media.
The Minister also shared that India’s Stack will be integrated locally for whichever country that would like to use it.
The data will be stored within the domain of that country which is going to opt for India Stack, Mr. Chandrasekhar informed The Hindu.
The Minister said that India will be an enabler in this area and that in the future, there could be an India Stack certified integrator or developer.
