Digital India is a campaign which was started by the Government of India to make the Country digitally empowered. It was launched by our Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi on 1st July 2015 with the view of making the country digitally empowered in the field of technology.
The Basic Objective of this project was to:-
- Connect the high speed internet service with the people living in rural areas.
- To improve the digital literacy rate in rural areas.
In rural areas there are many people who don’t have access to the internet and many people even don’t know what internet is. Therefore our PM thought of this idea that everybody whether rural or urban, rich or poor, high class people or low class people everybody should know that internet is and how to use it.
Digital India had played a major role during Demonetisation when the old 500 and 1000 rupees banknotes was considered as unacceptable notes. There Paytm came into existence and became very popular among people. All the payments were done online or by transfer or via paytm and many shopkeepers had installed Paytm QR Code or Paytm Mobile Number.
There are many places even today where there is no access to High speed Internet. Though the condition of India has improved because of Digital India but I hope by the end of 2017 there exists 100% Internet Literacy.
Let’s hope that India holds First Position in Internet connectivity.
