Visit Hall No. 5 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi’s Digital India Pavilion to see the future of digital possibilities come to pass. A prominent feature of the 42nd IITF 2023, which runs from November 14–27, 2023, is the exhibition including five innovative projects: DigiLocker, UPI, e-Sanjeevani, Bhashini, and Mann Ki Baat.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) established the DI Pavilion, which is attracting a lot of attention and providing a unique chance for individuals to interact with cutting-edge technology. There are interesting activities for all ages, interactive exhibits, and a chance to hear from professionals about DI projects. From inquisitive students to astute office workers, vibrant female entrepreneurs to passionate elderly citizens, the pavilion presents cutting-edge innovations for New India that aspires to be technologically astute.
Visitors to the UPI (United Payments Interface) display may profit from not using cash! Discover a cutting-edge ATM with UPI support that lets users withdraw cash using UPI Mode. To withdraw cash, users of a few banks’ UPI applications may scan a QR code that appears on the machine’s screen. All ATMs will soon provide this most recent payment option, which is based on the ICCW (Interoperable Careless Cash Withdrawal) mechanism. This technique eliminates card cloning and skimming, among other frauds and tampering, as no real card is needed.
DigiLocker is a leader in the paperless age, providing individuals with easy access to a wide range of important digital papers, such as driving licenses, birth certificates, wills, and other important records. DigiLocker is a ground-breaking digital document management technology that represents the union of security and accessibility—all now available to 200 million people! This cutting-edge platform lowers bureaucratic barriers while streamlining administrative procedures and increasing efficiency. The DigiLocker display, which takes center stage at the Digital India pavilion, has an enormous phone that highlights the DigiLocker App and demonstrates how it is enabling residents to access a wide range of documents at any time and from any location.
Bhashini seeks to expand the amount of information available in Indian languages and provide all Indians simple access to the internet and digital services in their mother tongue. The Bhashini displays emphasize diversity. The Bhashini App allows users to translate stuff into their own language. Three main components of the app—TEXT, VOICE, and CONVERSE—enable users to communicate with one another. While the CONVERSE and SPEAK functions each cover 13 languages, the TEXT feature provides translation into 22 Indian languages, enhancing linguistic accessibility and comprehension.
In addition, guests may enjoy “Voice Based Payments” and the Bhashini Live S2S (Speech to Speech) software, which translates live speech into 11 Indian languages and 14 other languages in real time, facilitating cross-language interactions.
As part of Project BHASHINI, “Bhasha Daan” is an effort to crowdsource linguistic contributions for many Indian languages. It asks people to contribute to the creation of an accessible data repository so they may enhance their native tongue digitally. The goal is to generate sizable datasets for Indian languages, which may be used to train AI models and then employed by many stakeholders to provide goods or services that would improve society as a whole.
Additionally, “Yojna Sathi” uses AI, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), and Large Language Models (LLMs) to customize communications with residents and consumers. Its main goal is to promote digital and financial literacy principles while increasing public knowledge of government programs, eligibility requirements, and application procedures. The bot’s primary attributes include support for many languages, customization, a feedback system, expedited reservation services, and much more!
With over 180 million patients now serviced, the ground-breaking eSanjeevani (National Telemedicine Service) platform is revolutionizing healthcare accessible even in distant and rural places. This native platform, which has two versions, is built on cloud and micro services architecture. eSanjeevani AB-HWC uses a Hub & Spoke model, enabling Community Health Officers in Health and Wellness Centers (HWCs) to assist rural patients in connecting with physicians and specialists in secondary and tertiary health facilities through assisted teleconsultations. In addition, eSanjeevaniOPD functions as a telemedicine platform that connects patients and providers, enabling them to effortlessly get healthcare services from the comfort of their homes using computers or cellphones. The ability for visitors to virtually contact a physician or expert at eSanjeevani telemedicine clinics spread around the nation is the exhibit’s main feature.
MyGov, the biggest platform for citizen interaction globally, is in line with the ideals of real Jan Bhagidari. Citizens have a fantastic chance to actively engage in the well-known radio program “Mann Ki Baat” at the Digital India pavilion. Every month on the last Sunday at 11 AM on All India Radio, guests may speak with Prime Minister Narendra Modi directly by recording messages LIVE that they would want to hear him address in future Mann Ki Baat broadcasts. The show is hosted by Modi. Guests may leave a message in Hindi or English by visiting the Mann Ki Baat booth, calling the 1800-11-7800 toll-free number, and leaving a message. The purpose of this project is to increase public involvement and provide people a forum to share their opinions, ideas, and notable local accomplishments.
By using the digital slingshot, visitors may provide comments or messages in a unique fashion, increasing the entertainment value. And furthermore? Visitors may take a picture at the Digital India Selfie Point that immediately transports them to a different location!
