With Narendra Modi-led NDA expected to form the government, India's political landscape is set for a big change. The change in government is likely to have a strong socio-economic impact. NDA's PM candidate Narendra Modi has been a huge advocate for increased usage of technology in governance. In fact, Modi's election campaigns across the country were massively powered by social networks, SMS campaigns and the most significant - 3D hologram projection. With Modi in power, we can expect more push to technology in India.
The technology segment, especially the local smartphone/tablet makers, can expect more encouragement from the new government to manufacture devices locally and bring the costs further down. However, it'll be interesting how the foreign players such as Samsung and Sony– currently dominating the gadgets segment – adapt to the changed scenario.
Aakash Tablet to be a reality?
We already know Narendra Modi has taken dig at Kapil Sibal multiple times for being unable to deliver India's ambitious ultra low-cost tablet – Aakash. Will the new government will make that happen?
