The Vice President of India, Shri M Venkaiah Naidu called for creating an ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive and urged every Indian to adopt Atm-Nirbhar Bharat campaign to transform “Local” India into “Glocal” India.

Speaking at the virtual launch of Elyments mobile App through video conferencing from Upa-Rashtrapati Nivas, the Vice President said the Atm-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan was aimed at giving a new boost and a quantum jump to the economic potential of the country by strengthening infrastructure, using modern technologies, enriching human resource, and creating robust supply chains.

Describing Atm-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan as a mission to galvanise the forces of growth across the country in various sectors of the economy, he said it was a launch pad for fostering entrepreneurship, nurturing innovation and creation of an ecosystem for rural-urban symbiotic development.

The Vice President said the call for Atm-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan was not a call for protectionism or isolationism, but for adopting a pragmatic development strategy that would enable the country to recognize and capitalize on its inherent strengths.

The Vice President said that it was quite appropriate that the Prime Minister has announced the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge’ yesterday in the backdrop of India becoming one of the IT superpowers because of the talented scientists and technology experts.

He said it would encourage Indian IT specialists to prepare apps for various uses to enhance our quality of life. As the Prime Minister envisages, it would result in world class ‘Made in India’ apps and create an ‘Atmanirbhar App Ecosystem’, Shri Naidu added. 

Appreciating the efforts of more than one thousand IT professionals in creating the indigenous app Elyments, he said the ‘New India’ needs vibrant young thinkers who are willing to experiment and explore. “We should innovate not just imitate. Innovation is the watchword for 21st Century. We have all the ingredients for success. We have pioneers who have built global brands in various sectors”, Shri Naidu asserted. 

Expressing his happiness that the app would be available in eight Indian languages, he expressed the hope that it would be made available in all major Indian languages.

The Vice President said such initiatives by Indian tech industry and professionals were truly praiseworthy as they not only demonstrated India’s prowess in technology but also was a step towards Atm-Nirbhar Bharat. “I hope this App would prove to be a good desi alternative to the many foreign Apps being used by the people”. 

Shri Naidu stressed the need to make India a leading power in every field, be it science & technology, economy, defence or human development.
