"Data and AI are driving transformation at scale across industries and offer a tremendous opportunity to transform public infrastructure and solve some of the most critical issues facing the country today," said Anant Maheshwari, President, Microsoft India. The nomination window will be open from March 4-April 16, followed by screening and final presentations.
