It creates the need of adopting new data policies in India to give individuals control over the usage of their data by corporations or governments. It is easily predictable that just a few years from now, big data is going to be driving the growth and the usefulness and the value across industries, whether it be healthcare or retail or enterprise technology, or even emerging companies, they’re all going to be built on big data analytics.

An example of this is recent demonetization in India has brought about an attitudinal shift in the minds of the Indian people with more individuals now migrating towards digital payments. This is one of the scope for big data analytics demand in the country.

The recent news is that unique digital identity for every citizen is mandatory in which each & every parameter has to be linked up with AADHAR number including your mobile number, finance services, healthcare etc is expected to create a gigantic pool of data which would require Big Data analytics to convert the raw data into meaningful information.
