JAIPUR: Giving a significant boost to Made in India initiative, Dr Ajay Data, Founder and CEO of Data XGen, partnered with a Russian domain registry company and formed a joint venture (JV) called ПОЧТА.РУС(POST.RUS). The announcement of this JV with Webnames Limited (Russian) and Data XGen Technologies (Indian) company was made at a press conference organized in Moscow yesterday.
DataMail.Bharat was launched recently in India to provide email address services in 8 Indian languages. This technology solution was what Webnames Limited of Russia was looking for since the past 13 years as they were trying to innovate the ‘Russian Email Address’ to replace English with Russian, says the press release. With this joint venture, ПОЧТА.РУС(POST.RUS), over 140 million Russians will be empowered to use the ‘Made in India’ technology for Russian language email addresses on web and smartphones for free.
Commenting on the JV, Dr Ajay Data, Founder and CEO of Data XGen Technologies said, “India has taken a lead to build linguistic email address technology which can be used globally. I am proud to say that India has innovated the linguistic email address which can be now offered to non-English spoken populations of the world. Post this launch of Russian language email address service, we will be soon entering into other countries too so as to enable billions of non-English people to join the worldwide Internet by simply removing the language barrier.”
The launch of free Russian language email address service, ПОЧТА.РУС LLC (POST.RUS), in Moscow was graced by the presence of Internet Ombudsman of the Russian Federation, Dmitri Marinichev; ICANN Vice President for Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Mikhail Yakushev; Director of the Association of Internet of Things, Andrei V Kolesnikov; Director REG.RU, Koroljuk Alexei Nikolayevich; CEO of Data Xgen Technologies, Dr Ajay Data (India), Director Rusnames, Sozonov Alexei Alexandrovich; and Director of Webnames, Sharikov Sergey Nikolaevich.
Dr Data further commented, “While we are empowering the people of Russia with Cyrillic Email Address service, I am thankful to our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for launching a DOT BHARAT service and giving us domains in 8 Indian languages. However, we are far behind the vision for making India digital. We should bring these 8 linguistic domains to each Indian resident who is not comfortable with the English language and would like to communicate and use Internet in his/her own language. Dot Bharat must be promoted in every corner of India and we are willing to support in this mission.”
