Imagine being asked to submit your birth certificate to your employer by the end of the day. Most people would typically have to rummage through piles of files at home to locate it, making it a harrowing task.
The government has now come up with a Digital Locker that allows you to store such important files, and lets you authenticate them online with your Aadhaar number. It also wants to allow publishers to upload their books online so that teachers, students or guardians can choose from a combination of these books and create online satchels or e-bastas (bastais Hindi for satchel), or even download them onto an e-reader like Kindle or as portable document format (pdf) files.
