The Governance of Digital Public Infrastructure: India Paper

This consultation paper examines the governance of Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI), focusing on initiatives across the globe. While DPI plays a crucial role in the digital era of Government and public service delivery, there is a lack of comprehensive assessment and documentation of its governance best practice. The paper fills this gap by documenting the evolution of India’s DPIs initiatives including Aadhaar, Unified Payments Interface (UPI), Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC), Account Aggregator (AA), ABDM (Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission), and National Digital Education Architecture (NDEAR), drawing insights from their evolution to form a DPI governance framework.
