Surfshark, a Netherlands-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) has released its 5th annual Digital Quality of Life Index survey. India has received an overall rank of 52 which is a jump of 7 ranks from the previous edition. 

The major factor for this jump is attributed to the improvement in internet quality. India ranks 16 in terms of internet quality. However in terms of development of e-infrastructure the country is ranked 91. Even in terms of e-security the country was ranked 66. The report however noted that in terms of affordability India has seen a marked improvement marking the cost as 1-2 hours of work per month. 

“India is unprepared to fight against cybercrime, and the country has very low data protection laws and has low internet penetration of somewhere around 60 per cent,” the report noted. 

“In many nations, ‘digital quality of life’ has merged into the broader concept of overall ‘quality of life’. There’s no other way to look at it now that so many daily activities, including work, education, and leisure, are done online. That’s why it’s crucial to pinpoint the areas in which a nation’s digital quality of life thrives and where attention is needed, which is the precise purpose of the DQL Index,” Surf Shark spokesperson Gabriele Racaityte-Karasauske said.
