How to deal with the sudden switch from smart phone to smart computer
New Delhi: The Indian government is considering a new policy to allow all smart devices to use smart technology to make use of its vast knowledge of the country’s infrastructure and its people, but some people are worried the policy will be used as a weapon to control the technology.
The proposal, which is in the works, has been met with opposition from some quarters, especially the telecom lobby.
The central government has already banned the sale of new smart devices in the country, with a ban on devices from the iPhone, Apple, Google and Samsung already in place.
The government also plans to set up a committee to review the policy, which will consider the pros and cons of allowing smart devices on all existing smart infrastructure, including roads, railways, power grids, telecoms networks, roads, water supply and communication systems.
This may include a move to set rules on when and where smart devices can be used, as the current rules have not yet been revised to suit the new reality.
The decision to set a date for the review will be taken by the Cabinet Committee on Security.
“Smart infrastructure will become a tool for controlling the development of digital technology and will also be used for the consolidation of power and control of the economy,” said the proposed policy.
The Cabinet Committee, which includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the chief minister of the state, will discuss the matter in person with the finance minister, said the statement issued by the government.
The new policy, if implemented, will see the country adopt a new approach to smart infrastructure development, it said.
However, the new approach may also be a political ploy to make the technology more accessible to certain segments of the population.
It also may see the government restrict the use of smart technology by certain segments, especially in urban areas.
While the government has also banned the import of smartphones from China, the government is looking at setting up a similar ban on smartphones from countries such as South Korea and Taiwan, as well as countries such the US and France.
This will further hamper the adoption of smart technologies in the Indian market, according to a report by the Institute for the Study of Society and Governance, a think tank, which warned that the move could have a negative impact on the technology’s adoption.
The report noted that the policy “could also lead to the imposition of an ‘all hands on deck’ (AGOD) mentality, where all citizens and industries will be given priority in the implementation of the technology and its related products.
This could be detrimental to India’s competitive position and result in the loss of innovation, economic growth and quality of life in the long term.”
The government is also working on a policy to address the problem of the growing number of smart devices, which are being sold in the market, but this has yet to be announced, the statement said.
The move is also likely to come into effect in 2018, the official said.
