By various measures of digital adoption, India is already among the global leaders.

India also has the second-largest mobile subscription base, with nearly 1.2 billion subscribers, and the second-largest internet subscription base, with 560 million subscribers.


Millions of Indians, particularly in big cities, now routinely interact with the world digitally as part of their regular routines. They can, for instance, read the news online, request a rideshare on their smartphone, order lunch delivery via phone app, video chat with a friend (Indians log 50 million video-calling minutes a day on WhatsApp), shop at a virtual retailer, pay a bill from their digital wallet, take a course over the internet, or watch a movie streamed to a tablet before nodding off for the night.

Online shoppers enjoy not only much more convenience but also a more excellent choice.

States in the top third of GDP per capita levels, such as Maharashtra, Haryana, and Tamil Nadu, together with the small, highly urbanized states and union territories of Delhi, Chandigarh, and Goa, have the highest internet penetration, reaching between 28% in Uttarakhand to more than 170% in Delhi. Given widespread adoption, Indian states are linking the digital gap. In several areas, including the installation of infrastructures like base transceiver stations and penetration of internet services, the comparatively lower-income states are growing the fastest. Furthermore, various initiatives have been taken by the Indian government to promote digitalization such as E-governance, E-Kranti—electronic delivery of services, Electronics manufacturing, Broadband highway, Universal mobile connectivity, Public internet access, Information for all, IT for jobs, and Early harvest. These initiatives facilitate digitalization in the Indian market.
