About India Stack
India is planning to export its digital products. Today the digital infrastructure market has huge potential. Several APIs of the Indian Government such as BHIM, Co-WIN, and Aadhar has been a huge success. Recently, the GOI launched the U-WIN platform based on the success of the Co-WIN. BHIM is being used in Bhutan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Cambodia, and Japan. Nepal was the first to implement UPI.
The government of India is currently looking for certified Stack Developers. The plan is to hire them just as the big giants like Microsoft and Google hire certified analysts. The Stack developers will be integrated into the system and will help GoI in taking them to other countries.
