 Electronics and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that his ministry would soon announce a slew of policies related to information technology. 

Addressing three-day India Mobile Congress 2017, Prasad said: "With passage of time, we need new polices. We decided we will finalise new polices for electronics, internet of things, software product, e-commerce and cloud computing. We will do these with proper public consultation and whatever is required to propel India to realise digital, high growth." 
 
"In the past we had set up one centre for excellence (COE) in Bangalore. We have decided we will set up three new COEs in Gandhinagar, Gurgaon and Vishakhapatnam. I have directed that these centre must be set up in new emerging areas: block chain, data science, augmented reality and machine learning," he said.
