Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran said that digital technology could create millions of jobs. On Friday, he spoke via video conference at a graduation meeting of Indian School of Business (ISB) students and made the above statement. He said this would be possible through the use of digital technology to address issues such as health and education, which have become a major challenge in the country due to the Covid-19.
With the help of digital technology, large-scale jobs can be created even for those who have moderate skills from those who don’t have any skills at all. He said large-scale employment opportunities would also be created in the fields of solar power, micro-grids and waste management.
