Earlier in the day Nadella met PM Narendra Modi and communications and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
“It’s always fantastic for me personally to be in India and the conversation I had with the minister was wide ranging,” Nadella said after meeting communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
“I have an aspiration that in this mobile and cloud world, we can empower every individual citizen of India and every business organisation and institution in India to be able to try with new technology. So, I am looking forward to be a part of both the Digital India and Make in India,” he added.
The Hyderabad-born Nadella said: “We are making huge investments in our data centres in particular, which we think can empower organisations in this country to be world class with the access to great technology.”
“I have requested him to consider electronic manufacturing in India. I have also requested that Microsoft has a great profile in the field of social services, (and) digital literacy can be promoted. We had a very purposeful exchange. I am very happy and I warmly welcome him,” Prasad told reporters after the meeting.
