Block-chain technology to be adopted for e-Governance services, MeitY releases national strategy

The potential of block-chain technology may be explored in the proposed public digital platforms in various sectors such as agriculture, health, and energy to meet enhanced security requirements

A national strategy on adopting block-chain technology for government systems, especially e-governance services has been released by the ministry for electronics and information technology (MeitY). Published on Friday, the 52-page document seeks to “create trusted digital platforms through shared block chain infrastructure” and promote “research and development, innovation, technology and application development” around the technology.

Block-chain, the underlying technology for crypto-currencies, is being used to create applications for third-generation of the Internet (web3).

Offering recommendations for creating digital platforms, the National Strategy on Block-chain provides insights on the government’s strategies.

Including transfer of land and property, managing digital certificates, pharmaceutical supply chain, e-notary services, e-voting, smart grid management and electronic health record management, the ministry has identified 44 key areas where block chains can be applied. The document has also taken into consideration block-chain based platforms operated by governments in China, Brazil, the UAE and Europe, and highlights various government-led initiatives on block-chain that are under way.

“The potential of block-chain technology may be explored in the proposed public digital platforms in various sectors such as agriculture, health, and energy to meet enhanced security requirements”, it added.

To be utilized in areas such as health, agriculture, education, and finance, the ministry has also recommended the formation of a National Block-chain Framework. According to the document, “geographically distributed national-level shared infrastructure” is needed to “enable citizen services at large scale and enable cross-domain application development”.

Comprising a basic framework for implementation and integration with existing infrastructure and services, reference implementations of real-life projects and sandbox environments for developing and testing applications, the platform’s research components will be developed with intermediate milestones. “The national strategy on block chain provides a holistic framework for building a block chain infrastructure for the nation. We, as an industry, are looking forward to collaborate with the government”, said Ashish Singhal, founder and chief executive officer, Coinswitch Kuber, a crypto exchange.
