With the kind of technology, talent and innovation which are currently available in the country, India will leapfrog the learning stages the developed countries have to go through towards realising their digital goals, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said.
Addressing the gathering on the second day of the ‘India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2017’ here, Goyal said: “We have to expand the level of technology for growth. The telecom industry and Railways are helping India expanding it to benefit the masses”.
“Connectivity is the key to growth and development as we bring mobility to the people across the country to bring a comfortable experience,” Goyal added. ALSO READ: Right to privacy: Linking mobile numbers to Aadhaar will continue, says COAI
