Aruna Sundararajan, secretary, department of telecommunication, on Wednesday spelt out of the four elements that will enable India to fulfil the 2020 vision of becoming a powerful digital economy.
At the inaugural event of three day India Mobile Congress organised by COAI, Sundarajan spoke of connecting the unconnected. "Although connectivity has increased, still substantive part of population need aspirational services (high speed connectivity). There is a need for serving the unserved."
Second is that every Indian should have access to best products and services. Mobile is an effective mechanism to provide access to latest technology and products, she said.
There is need to deliver quality health, education and financial services to 800 million to 900 million Indians who are still remaining.

Fourth is India's emergence as a global telecom leader. “We need to push for IPR in Artificial Intelligence, robotics, Machine to machine (M2M) etc. There is need to figure out can and how will India acquire a global leadership position in telecom,” she said.
