Enabling the ONDC Revolution through Open-Source Accelerators

ONDC is a digital public infrastructure initiative backed by the Govt of India and is conceived to revolutionise the digital commerce landscape in India across sectors like e-commerce, mobility, transportation, financial services etc. It aims to eliminate the need for central intermediaries & other barriers thereby expanding the reach of e-commerce to all types of sellers across the country. ONDC is built on the BECKN protocol and operates on the key principles of unbundling & interoperability. In this talk, we intend to touch upon those key principles & what it takes to build on ONDC.

We will share our experience with building an open-source reference mobility application on ONDC. We will explore how this reference app can be used as an accelerator to develop apps for ONDC mobility, thus helping the buyers and the seller apps to get connected easily. The second accelerator we will explore is an ONDC adaptor which will help accelerate e-commerce sellers on platforms like Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, etc. to get onboarded to the ONDC network easily. 

Key takeaways for the audience: 
1. Making the audience familiar with ONDC

2. The promise of ONDC
1. Challenges with platforms
2. Opportunities with ONDC in ecom & Mobility
