Rural growth, structural transformation from agriculture and inclusive agriculture to high-efficiency manufacturing & other financial areas can be quickened, as innovative change changes people's lives and empowers the developing nations to advance on scales and at speeds previously unthinkable.
Be that as it may, the instance of India is remarkable on the grounds that, unlike its neighbours in the East and Southeast Asia, quick financial development has not been sufficiently comprehensive to diminish the number of Indians living in hardship.

Geographical use of new innovations is as yet constrained in rural zones; numerous farmers are still in the dark about these advances. Deficient network in these regions alongside an absence of essential knowledge of computers and thwarted literacy development all contribute towards the major problems. Considerable investment is required in education, infrastructure, transportation, broadband and power, especially in villages and among the poorest populaces with a specific end goal to really reap the benefits of the 4IR.
