Good morning everyone, today I am going to give a speech on digital India. On July 1, 2015, in the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Delhi, a hugely ambitious project named Digital India was officially unveiled. Several prominent businessmen attended the event, including Cyrus Mistry, the then chairman of the Tata Group, Mukesh Ambani, the chairman and managing director of Reliance India Limited, and Azim Premji, the chairman of Wipro. They all discussed their strategies for bringing the digital revolution to India’s urban and rural populations.
This program’s implementation is anticipated to cost roughly Rs. 1 lakh crore. However, by investing 2.5 lakh crore in the digital India program, Mr. Ambani, Chairman, and CEO of the Reliance Group have made a big effort. Together with the IT businesses, a variety of events were arranged to support more than 600 Indian regions. The government of India took a significant step in this direction with the launch of the “Digital India” initiative.
The initiative is designed to be advantageous to both service providers and customers. Under this program, 2.4 lakh schools and institutes will have free WiFi available so that kids may easily work online. As part of this program, it is hoped that 1.7 lakh people will be employed.
In conclusion, The development of the social and economic standing of the country’s majority population is the goal of a digitally connected India. Such a feat would be possible if non-agricultural economic activities are developed. An essential digital infrastructure could contribute to global growth. Because it eliminates the need to spend time on paperwork, it will be a very profitable strategy. Thank you.
