NEW DELHI, INDIA — The National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) has called on the Indian government to champion the integration of robotics within public sectors to boost domestic demand and investment. 

In its feedback on the government’s draft National Strategy on Robotics, NASSCOM stated that increased public sector participation is key to stimulating demand and scaling robotics adoption in India.

NASSCOM highlighted potential use cases such as automating repetitive administrative tasks, processing citizen documents and applications, generating reports, and improving cybersecurity. It also advocated for public sector manufacturing of robotic components to benefit the private sector.

Additionally, NASSCOM called for investments in research and development (R&D) and high-tech labs to boost innovation in robotics. It requested the Ministry of Electronics and IT hold discussions with stakeholders to refine the strategy further before finalizing it.

The draft strategy aims to establish India as a global robotics hub through the proposed National Robotics Mission. It envisions robotics as integral to the government’s IndiaAI initiative for advancing AI adoption.

Aside from their recommendations, NASSCOM VP and Head of Public Policy Ashish Aggarwal acknowledged the draft strategy’s recognition of current challenges and urged the Ministry of Electronics and IT to conduct discussions with key stakeholders to refine the national strategy further.
