Digital Public Infrastructure and Platforms (DPIP)
This research on the Impact of Digital Public Infrastructure and Platforms (DPIP) is an appraisal of India’s ongoing efforts to build and deploy digital public infrastructure such as Aadhaar, UPI, ABDM, ONDC, DIGIT, etc that enable co-creation of digital services and encourage digital adoption. The first part of this research will be presented as a policy brief on the taxonomy of DPIPs to understand different types of digital public infrastructure and the components of the digital public ecosystem. This will dovetail into an in-depth review of 3-4 specific case studies that will evaluate the benefits and risks of DPIPs from the lens of building scale, enabling inclusion, improving efficiency and facilitating innovation in a secure and trusted digital environment. The end goal is to be able to inform the government’s ongoing efforts, address the gaps, and works towards strengthening the DPIP program.
