A government official who attended Gate’s little over half hour long meeting with the IT minister told Business Insider that Gates was very keen to participate in e-agriculture and e-payment platforms talking specifically about initiatives like patient digital health records and e-mandi. Gate was especially excited about developing apps for the two platforms, showing a lot more interest in e-payment platforms in India. He discussed developing apps around e-payment and talked about how more payment banks need to come up in India. Praising the government for being able to get a billion people on Adhaar, Gates also discussed how the government should look at connecting the soil health to the unique identity which can help developers to build apps that will help make a farmer’s life much easier. He ended by emphasizing his interest in investing in e-payment and e-agriculture start-ups.
