Cloud computing and mobile applications have become catalysts in society for easy accessibility of information and rapid economic growth. Connecting with each other and sharing data have become an unavoidable process in our day to day lives. While a part of India is already in the digital mainstream, another part is not even in the near glance of digitization.
Digital India is thus a move advocated by our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure equal accessibility and availability of Information technology to eradicate digital division across the country. The programme comprises of various initiatives targeted to prepare India for becoming a knowledge economy and a better governance system.

Many companies and entrepreneurs are coming out with innovative ideas and practical solutions to tackle the problems of the country realising the government’s vision to empower every citizen with access to digital services, knowledge and information.
