NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure bets on open-source platforms to diversify services

For education, NSDL e-Governance uses an open source platform called Sunbird that provides modular building blocks for learning and human development and is open sourced under an MIT license.

Sethi, who is also a member of the Open Network for Digital Commerce Advisory Council formed in July, pointed out that NSDL e-Governance’s pilot of running an open-source enabled cab-hailing network in Kochi was successful, and “Has now gone live as a full-scale project. We provided the infrastructure services of the gateway and registry”.

With ONDC, noted Sethi, NSDL e-Governance is attempting to play a similar role in digitizing the kirana or the e-commerce segment by providing the gateway services over there as an infrastructure player and also become an ecosystem enabler to get market participants to join these open networks.
