NEW DELHI: India will soon set up its first digital capability centre showcase advanced technologies and provide a test bed for emerging innovations as the government looks to transform the country's manufacturing sector.

The Niti Aayog has roped in McKinsey & Company, which supports five such centres globally — in Aachen, Chicago, Singapore, Venice and Beijing — to develop it here. A senior official, aware of the deliberations, told ET that the government will act as a facilitator to bring together industry, academia, and research on one platform to help set up a digital capability centre (DCC), which has to be driven by the private sector.

The Aayog has lined up extensive stakeholder consultations over the next few months to firm up the plan. Rajat Gupta, senior partner McKinsey & Company, confirmed to ETthat deliberations are on with NITI Aayog and industry to understand the needs of the Indian industry. “However, India is a huge country with diverse set of industries that also includes large number of MSMEs. The challenge, therefore, will be to design a centre which is fit for purpose,” said Gupta.

DCC is a unique digital manufacturing learning centre offering company leaders and their workforces hands-on experience and workshops in next generation technology to help them advance their operations, design and productivity and can be used at all levels of the value chain.
