He mentioned the importance of the Digital India campaign as a part of Make In India initiative. He mentioned about the need of interlinking and coordination of all concerned departments.

...Sony Music (India) February 2012. Vivek Paul, Director of Digital Media Initiatives at Sony sat with Shridhar Subramaniam, President, India and Middle East, Sony Music Entertainment, in his Santa Cruz, Mumbai office and mulled over the remarkable changes that the music industry in India had witnessed over the past few years. With the rapid growth in Internet penetration and usage, technology was driving music production, access and consumption. Sales from digital platforms had surpassed sales from traditional physical formats, such as CDs and tapes. With the distribution of digital music in India largely skewed towards the telecom business, music was increasingly being accessed via mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. Artists were reaching out to consumers directly through many innovative platforms, and live performances were gaining more traction. Independent (“indie”) artist business models were rising in popularity and creating further fragmentation in the market. Overall, the role of the recording company seemed to be diminishing. While some of the leading companies in the music industry were testing the waters in the digital space, new players, including technology companies, were quickly entering the market with various new platforms and services. Distribution, in the form of music streaming services and e-commerce sites, was changing the way music was being bought and consumed.
