BOOKFive years back a baby, the mBillionth Mobile Award, was born to its mother called the Manthan Award. In half a decade, the mBillionth Award has not only grown geometrically, but because of its relation with mobile and telecom, its contextual impact has seen a multiplier impact. Since 2010, the mBillionth Award, as an annual initiative, has been able to aggregate more than 12,000 app, mobile and telecom applications across diverse streams of business, health, agriculture, governance, women and child, journalism, citizen media, culture and heritage, travel and tourism, entertainment, gaming, commerce and financial inclusion. While the record says that initially, most of the applications that we got as nominations were based on simple mobile applications like SMS, IVR, Helpline, Voice, mix of radio/audio and mobile, broadly categorised under VAS (value added services), gradually the entries started pouring in in the form of apps.

Few excerpts from the book are as follows:

“The huge Indian mass base needs to be served holistically with mobile support services. I strongly feel private players can play a meaningful role to reach out to the population.”
Osama Manzar (Chairman mBillionth Award)
“Although India is poised for rapid economic growth, the country still falls behind in key development indicators such as basic health and education facilities. It is vital to put in place a favorable policy framework and infrastructure for these services to grow and reach all the corners of the country.” Mouli Raman (Managing Director, OnMobile Global Ltd.)

Few excerpts from the book are as follows:

“It is a collective pride and satisfaction that mBillionth could provide a dynamic forum and ecosystem for the mobile and telecom stakeholders in South Asia to experience, share and exchange ideas, innovations and partnerships, all towards meeting governance, development and citizen services needs for more than 1.5 billion population in the region.”

“In the modern context, it is imperative that a large number of people who do not have access to facilities are brought into the mainstream. Especially in rural areas, where with rising incomes and aspirations, there is an increased demand for health care, education, entertainment and credit, the supply of which is abysmally low.”
