distribution of about 1,210,000,000 mobiles, and India's biometric identifier (Aadhaar) all pushing

services provided to them.  

The production of mobile handsets in India has also
grown exponentially, Mr Prasad stated

services will become easier and more affordable.

technology that is both developmental and inclusive.
