Nilekani to sign up for top govt panel as advisor to prevent digital monopolies


The government has set up a nine-member advisory council, including Nandan Nilekani from Infosys and National Health Authority CEO R S Sharma, on steps required to design and accelerate adoption of open network for digital business (ONDC).

The Branch for Promotion of Industry and Internal Commerce (DPIIT) in an order said it has initiated a project on ONDC and the task has been assigned to Quality Council of India.

“ONDC aims at promoting open networks developed on open sourced methodology, the usage of open specifications and open network protocols independent of any particular platform,” it said.

It is expected to digitise all of the value chain, standardise operations, promote inclusion of suppliers, derive efficiencies in logistics and give a boost to value for consumers.

“It has been determined to constitute an advisory council to advise the government on measures needed to design and accelerate adoption of ONDC,” DPIIT said.

The other members of the council are QCI Chairman Adil Zainulbhai, Avaana Capital Founder Anjali Bansal, Digital India Foundation Co-Founder Arvind Gupta, National Payments Corporation India CEO Dilip Asbe, National Security Depository MD Suresh Sethi, CAIT Secretary General P Khandelwal, and Retailers Organization of India CEO Kumar Rajagopalan.
