When we look at the main challenge faced by the countries, it is to limit human interaction and make transactions more and more digitally. It seems that besides a few initial teething problems, the transition was almost instant in the developed countries.
This is where we have miserably failed due to not just having sufficient infrastructure such as uninterrupted high-speed internet and equipment but also due to the non-digitized and human-intensive nature of the national economy.
Imagine if all these people queuing to get Rs12000 against the social distancing requirements could have mobile wallet or bank account then they could have got that while sitting at their home and all the efforts and money could have been saved.
Even those segments of society, which could have easily adopted the change such as the education sector, have largely failed, leaving the future of next generation in jeopardy. Even our education sector lacks basic facilities and infrastructure such as online remote learning failed due to not having the sufficient access to high speed internet and digital platforms.
