DIGITIZATION- A Solution or a Curse for Common Man?

DIGITIZATION

We have seen a wave of measures being taken by the current government to promote digitization across the length and breadth of the country.

Mobile Wallets, UPI, and Mobile Apps to name a few have been actively promoted across all channels (print/electronic/social). Our elected leaders too have started wooing people into the benefits of going digital.

Amidst this surge in the pressure on the “aam aadmi” to adopt digitization, I feel that there is a gradual feeling of despondency, frustration as well as anger creeping slowly and steadily in the common man. A man who sometimes back had to think only about earning a square meal a day for him and his family, has to know suddenly rattle up User Id’s and Passwords across several “Digital Platforms” !

Obvious questions that come in mind are:

  1. Is the whole country ready to adopt this digital wave?
  2. Are our systems, processes as well as controls (digital security systems) full proof to avoid the deadly menace of hacking & online frauds?
  3. Is 21st century India (and here I mean our farmers too) literate enough to adopt digitization…
