Amitabh Kant, CEO of Niti Aayog, stated that the country’s policies must be pro-innovation, light touch, and progressive, as well as benchmarked against the best in the world.

Speaking at a Microsoft India event, Kant stated that India produces three unicorns every month.

“My view is that your policy regime should be pro-innovation, light touch and progressive. You should benchmark against the world’s best and even better than the world’s best,” he noted.

According to Kant, as India grows, there will be challenges on the cybersecurity front and the country needs to equip itself to tackle this.

The Niti Aayog CEO stressed that India needs to really work a lot on cybersecurity.

Referring to a large number of pending cases in Indian courts, he said the number of cases cannot be reduced without using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
