He was speaking at week-long Azadi ka Digital Mahotsav.

He said that there is a need to reach every nook and corner of the country to provide government services and explained the concept of single sign.

“A single sign-on which helps anyone in India to be able to enter the virtual space and be able to avail all kinds of services,” Sawhney said.

He said that services are available through multiple windows but need to move to a situation where any service anywhere and on any window is made available.

Meity additional secretary Rajendra Kumar said that there is need to focus on developing platforms and a lot of work has been done with domain ministries and is continuing.

“We also need to focus on cyber security where India has made a very significant progress in the last 3 years. Currently we are ranked 10th in the world in cybersecurity. That’s an area we need to constantly be on watch for emerging threats and counter them,” Kumar said.
