From 4pm, 1st July 2015 a new era started in India. It’s became a red letter day when Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the great venture of Digital India – connecting India in one cord. Top CEO’s across the globe ensured to invest 4.5 lakh crore (US$68 billion). Face book, Google, Microsoft, Oracle all are eager to take the initiative to a better India – Digital India. If we think only of ourselves, forget about other people, and then our minds occupy a very small area… Inside that small area, even tiny problem appears very big. But the moment you develop a sense of concern for others, you realize that, just like ourselves, they also want happiness; they also want satisfaction. When you have this sense of concern, your mind automatically widens. This is the vision behind the Digital India. Not to improve only a circle but to improve India as a whole.
Digital India designed to bridge the gap between the digital haves and digital have not, between the poor and the affluent, rural and urban, literate and illiterate, employed and unemployed, and between the empowered and the disempowered. This perception is focalizing on three key areas: creation of digital infrastructure, delivery of governance and services on demand, and digital empowerment of citizens.
So what is the deal about?
1. Modi will present the government's roadmap for digitizing India - Launch of BharatNet in 11 states.
2. Unveiling various government schemes like Digital Locker, e-education and e-health during the event.
3. Making the digital infrastructure as readily available to the citizens of India.
4. Digitally, empowering the citizens and ensuring that the government services are available to citizens electronically - deliver public services through technology through e-Kranti.
5. Next Generation Network (NGN).
6. Expansion of mobile connectivity.
7. Digitization of health records.
