All the fuss has been about Digital India. But India has fallen back six places to 131, despite improving its IDI score from 2.14 to 2.69 in the ICT Development Index. Nepal, which does not have a funded and actively promoted digital strategy, has advanced four places to 136th place. With a focused effort they may even give a run to India.
And Sri Lanka stays in place at 115th place. Its score has improved from 2.97 to 3.64. This illustrates the challenge. You can improve, but you got to improve more than your peers. Otherwise you stay in place.
The regional rankings are here.
