Urging young engineers to help move India to the status of an innovation hub, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he will invite ideas from the public for developing a mobile application for the Prime Minister's Office towards making it mobile-friendly.

"The faster you all make mobile apps, the faster you will capture the market. We need a revolution in mobile governance. We will launch a competition through mygov.In to seek ideas for a PMO mobile app," he said at an event here to mark 25 years of the IT industry body Nasscom.

"Why didn't Google originate in India? We have no dearth of talent. The government will provide the necessary infrastructure if the sector continues to innovate," he added.

Saying that the IT industry had changed the West's perception of India, Modi emphasised that the quest for a 'Digital India' needed to include all citizens.

He also pointed out that cyber security was an emerging issue where new IT graduates could contribute to finding solutions.

"Everyone's worried about cyber security. Can India's youngsters help the world sleep peacefully at night? It's the need of the times, can the industry evolve a taskforce to tackle this problem," asked the prime minister.

"Cloud godowns" and "cloud lockers" would soon be an emerging trend and the domestic industry could capitalise on it provided it could ensure cyber security, he added.

"Whole banks and even government departments will move from physical files to cloud storage," Modi said.

He also highlighted the use of technology on the coal block allocations and direct transfer of cooking gas subsidy in terms of promoting transparency.
