NEW DELHI: Communications and Information Technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said that the centre will take the help of private companies to deeply entrench Prime Minister Narendra Modi?s ?Digital India? programme in the system so that it starts yielding results.

Inaugurating the 23rd Convergence India 2015 expo organized by Exhibitions India, Prasad said, ?India is in the midst of a digital revolution, and the government has unveiled new policies and regulations to accelerate adoption of ICT in key economic and strategic sectors to increase the competitiveness and productivity of the nation.?

He noted that events like Convergence India provide an impetus to the ICT industry and will propel the nation forward.

The three-day Convergence India Expo 2015, with the theme ?Connecting India,? is showcasing emerging technologies from telecom, broadcast and the digital media, which will impact urban as well as rural India in a rapidly emerging digital, multi-screen converged world.

The guest of honour, Minister of State for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Y.S Chowdary added, ?Today, the time has come to think about the development of rural India. There is a great need of digitizing each and every sector. Our department recently created an app, which guides fishermen, when to fish and when not to fish etc. The beauty of democracy is a rolling model; we need to create a blue print and then work towards the execution.?

The other guests of honour present at the opening ceremony were Bharti Enterprise MD Manoj Kohli and Viom Networks Ltd chief mentor Umang Das.

The expo will witness high-powered conferences with 120 CXO's featuring visionaries from various sectors deliberating on topics such as ?Digital India?, "Internet for All?, ?Cloud solutions for businesses?, ?TV white space and its utility for mobile services?, and ?M2M Adoption?, etc.

Exhibitions India group chairman Prem Behl said, ?ICT is an important sector, which will play a vital role in contributing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi?s dream of a Digital India, Smart Cities, Make in India, Made in India, zero defect, zero effect, skill India, competitive India, ease of doing business in India etc., and showcase Indian talent to the world.?
