Canadian researches will help India to introduce blockchain

The Indian information technology trade organization, the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), will work with BRI researchers supported by the government of Canada to help developers learn more about blockchain platforms in preparation for creating and launching tools within the country.

To that end, the two groups have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) establishing a financial and research partnership. According to media platform INC42, each organization will invest in webinars and other types of seminars, according to which researchers from BRI can share their knowledge using case studies with Indian government departments and other organizations.

NASSCOM chairman Raman Roy said that although he is very pleased to launch a research initiative, he understands that encouraging use of blockchain in the country will be a long-term effort.

Within the framework of the second phase, an institute of blockchain will be created in India, which will be specifically aimed at helping to develop the digital ecosystem in Telengana, according to INC42.

Stepping back, these steps seem to strengthen India's goal of placing electronic medical records, land records and digital certificates on a blockchain, said Amitabh Kant, general director of the National Institution for Transforming India.
