India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recently stated that Blockchain, along with other state-of-the-art technologies (AI, big data, IoT and machine learning) will serve as a catalyst for the country’s growth, Times of India reports.

India, according to Modi, is on track to become a global tech hub.
