"With the initiative of the Prime Minister, India is going forward in all areas, and the usage of technology has been taken to all levels. But if cyber security is not ensured, this strength can become a huge challenge for us," he added.

"It is the vision of the PM that every Indian should empower themselves through technology and internet. Due to Digital India program, empowerment and positive changes have taken place in our lives," the home minister said.
