New Delhi: The telecom industry plays a significant role in advancing digital connectivity to achieve rapid economic progress, President Droupadi Murmu said on Monday, February 6.
The president said that the Digital India initiative has been assisting the government in providing various public services with greater efficiency and transparency, while speaking to Officers of the Indian Naval Material Management Service, Assistant Executive Engineers of Central Engineering Services (Roads), and Officer Trainees of the Indian Posts and Telecommunication Accounts and Finance Service. She continued by saying that more needs to be done to connect disconnected populations, particularly in rural and isolated locations.
The Indian Navy has been successfully defending our marine interests, trading routes, and offering support in times of crisis, she said. "As employees of the Indian Naval Material Management Service, they would be in charge of playing a crucial role in ensuring that vital supplies for naval ships, submarines, and planes are always available."
For a country to prosper and grow economically, she said that connection and road infrastructure are essential. "The government has launched various projects in recent years to construct new roadways and upgrade the ones that already exist. This will ensure that items be transported more quickly, improve people's connectivity, and create job opportunities."
The president further stated that it was the duty of Central Engineering Services personnel to guarantee that the infrastructure projects they undertook were sustainable, environmentally friendly, and energy efficient. She challenged them to think creatively and put the greatest technology and engineering solutions into practise to reduce traffic accidents.
