Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, stated that the Government of India will establish a Digital India Innovation Fund to support deeptech startups.
The minister made these remarks during his address to over 1,000 college students at the Catholic Bishop House Campus in Thamarassery, Kerala, as part of the New India for Young India: Techade of Opportunities program.
The minister mentioned that PM Narendra Modi’s vision of New India is one, where there are ample opportunities for every Indian to participate in the development process and Hard work and skills are the only determinants of success.
Responding to a question on the issues like job opportunities in the country and migration from Kerala, Rajeev Chandrasekhar said, “Migration is a consequence of lack of hope. But India at the moment is going through an inflection point. The coming decade is going to be India’s techade. There are tremendous opportunities for young Indians. You won’t get these kinds of opportunities, anywhere outside India. We should always have confidence that this is our land and the action is in India.”
