Rebooting India

Rebooting India Review ã 107 Iety According to Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah the only way to do this is by using technology to radically reimagine government itself Rebooting India identifies a dozen initiatives where a series of citizen friendly high tech public institutions can deliver low cost solutions to India’s grand challe. For the size of the book it covers a lot If you have been out of India for a while living outside missed the growth in country and the changes that are expected to get us on track to being a big successful thriving economy i would recommend the book I also enjoyed the idea of bureaucrats and successful private leaders coming together to correct the causes the book recommends a 10 person A team to solve each problem in the country with support from the one and only PM Digitization can also help eradicate a lot of problems and the book argues in its favor of course written by Nandan and Viral There in lies some of the problems i had with the book i could never figure out who has written it as it jumps between authors somewhat non fluidly for me i do need to relate strongly even in a non fiction and recognize all you guys might not be but this is the story of how Aadhar the identity of a billion plus people came out Anyway i did feel tired reading it a bit too often loved the content so kept going i will say that my husband flipped the page and said its old as it was refreshed in 2016 i found it relevant Go for it if you feel like an NRI that has missed a lot back home

Rebooting India Review ã 107 Nges Based on the learnings from building Aadhaar the proposed initiatives would save the government a minimum of Rs 100000 crore annually about 1 per cent of India’s GDP These visionary cutting edge ideas the authors hope will enable each one of India’s 12 billion citizens to realize their aspiratio. Many experts have argued that technological advancement can pave the way for a developed India We are sitting on a demographic dividend expected to become the world s youngest country by 2020 with 64 per cent of its population roughly 800 million people of working age But our country cannot become a global powerhouse unless we resolve the contradictions and bridge the gaps that distort our society Fancy this What if a million banking correspondents euipped with smart phones and biometric readers could deliver banking services to 12 billion Indians What if every citizen could use mobile banking and use cashless payments Moving beyond the financial sector can we use technology to solve some of India s most pressing problems to improve standards in healthcare and education to cut wastage in government spending and increase revenue to make tax collection citizen friendly to streamline our courts and to eliminate corruption These are the uestions that form the core of the just released non fiction title by Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah Rebooting India Realizing a Billion AspirationsIt is also interesting to note that in every chapter of the book the authors have put forward some big ideas that can radically redesign existing systems and in the process according to the authors save the government an estimated Rs 1 trillion annually Conservative back of the envelope calculations find those savings to be euivalent to 1 per cent of our GDP enough for two Golden uadrilateral road systems across the country every year or to send 200 Mangalyan missions to Mars annually One year s savings are also sufficient to provide minimal health insurance for every family in the country for three years they argue But can these ideas really workThe authors Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah are reputed experts at hand and these suggestions therefore hold much ground Nilekani is co founder and former CEO of Infosys Technologies and was founding chairman of the Uniue Identification Authority of India Aadhaar He was twice listed as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time In 2014 he was awarded The Economist s Innovation Award in the category Economic and Social Innovation Viral Shah on the other hand worked at the intersection of policy and technology at the Uniue Identification Authority of India where he led the design of the government s payments and subsidy platforms using Aadhaar He is a co inventor of the Julia programming language and co founder of FourthLion Technologies He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of California Santa Barbara Technology as is evident has been the forte of the two and their big ideas that can radically redesign existing systems are all based on technology The only way to achieve what the authors propose in their own words is by using technology to radically reimagine government itself Based on their learnings from building Aadhaar the world s largest social identity programme the authors in this book published by Penguin Books India identify a dozen initiatives where a series of citizen friendly high tech public institutions can deliver low cost solutions to India s grand challengesThe offering has been penned in simple language and is therefore captivating some of the brilliant ideas proposed in the book often compel the reader to pause and imagine what if it were as the authors propose Broadly speaking the book is about the ways in which technology can be employed to transform our government and create a series of new citizen friendly public institutions The first part of the book focuses on the idea of Aadhaar as a platform upon which to build a new class of services These include an electronic payments network a redesigned social security system and the electronic Know Your Customer e KYC service Nilekani and Shah then go on to examine the idea of technology as a tool for institution building From railway stations to the pending cases in the courts to the manner in which our elections are conducted the authors look at diverse subjects and after perhaps a tremendous amount of research imagine how technology can be put to use to make these processes simpler and citizen friendlyThe authors argue that India cannot become a global powerhouse unless we resolve the contradictions and bridge the gaps that are distorting our society We need technology fuelled structural reforms in our government business and our society at large First published in Beyond Books The Statesmanhttpwwwinkstreetin201511fundi

With Aadhaar Card gaining ubiuity and its fair amount of acceptance as well as criticism there can be no better time to read Rebooting India Realizing a Billion Aspirations I particularly enjoyed reading how Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah explain to us their grand idea of instituting a special start up team to address 10 grand challenges Moreover the experience episodes on the stumbling blocks their team needed to encounter on the way to realizing the billion aspirations of India has been very crisply explained so much so that the reader will travel with them throughout the process As much as the book focuses on the USP of Aadhaar and its benefits I feel it should also have given some room for its flip side and discuss the cons that have been raised against it till date Though there are passages in this book which brief about the resistance propped up both constructive and destructive they do not discuss in enough detail for me The least the authors could have considered is they could have given one case study example like the LPG subsidy instance to state how Aadhaar is susceptible to certain drawbacks with regards to certain privacy concerns It might be unfair to portray the card as an impenetrable system and as a panacea for the malaise plaguing India in terms of voting system subsidies net infrastructure development education expenditure etc to name a fewUniuely narrated Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah share the experiences of their team in bringing Aadhaar to fruition right from the time the seeds were sown for this project The writing style is very down to earth and wastes no word The point is made clear at every reuired chapter with a clear objective in mind Strangely the authors become third persons at times in the passage which I can describe as uirky amusement Special praise goes for introducing almost every chapter of the book with a very pertinent and meticulously thought of anecdote On the same note the mind mapping done at regular intervals to condense the crucial information is an excellent form of visual aid More reasons to buy a paper back version of this book and store in your book shelfIn one line this book is a must read for all Indians to understand the vision of Nandan Nilekani for future India using the route of Aadhaar while simultaneously gaining inspiration from the experience of Nandan Nilekan Viral Shah and the entire unit that toiled for Aadhaar with specifics
