Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani and Union Cabinet Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad are among Indians who have enrolled for e-Residency programme initiated by Estonia, said Riho Kruuv, Ambassador of Estonia to India here on Wednesday. Launched in 2014, Estonia's e-Residency programme saw an enrollment of over 2,174 Indians out of which 1,062 individuals applied in 2018.

The embassy said that around 286 new Estonian companies were created by Indians in the process majorly from startups and other freelancers working on sectors such as web designing, software programming, content writing and others. "Reliance Industries has set up a research centre for Jio in Estonia which aims at understanding the digital society of Estonia and the benefit it can offer to India and Indians," Kruuv stated.

The Ambassador also noted that Estonia is the world's first country to introduce an e-Residency programme that offers individual access to a government-issued digital ID, adding that it enables the opening of a global European Union (EU) company fully online while working from India.
