Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Indian government is preparing to launch its ‘Digital India’ initiative on a large scale, which will also include selling merchandise, hackathons and games.
Launch of Digital India, an initiative to take technology to the villages and block-levels, will be spread over a week across the country.
No dates have been fixed so far but the Digital India Week (DIW) is likely to kick-start in July. It will involve stakeholders across state governments and ministries. This is likely to be one of the flagship programmes of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
