Scaling on the optical fibre network, the nation is all set to march on the digital path this week when Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches a Rs one lakh crore programme aimed at wiping out the digital divide.
The programme, envisaged by Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), with coordination with ministry of communications & IT, ministry of rural development, ministry of human resource development, ministry of health and others, will benefit all states and Union territories. The existing ongoing e-Governance initiatives would be revamped for the alignment with the principles of Digital India. The vision of the programme is to transform the country into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. It would ensure that government services are available to citizens electronically.
