Ravi Shankar ParsadRavi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister for Communication & Information Technology, articulated the Government’s initiative ‘Digital India’ to transform India into a digitally empowered society.

He said that the government was working towards connecting all the 2.5 lakh gram panchayats through Bharat Net optic fibre network and nearly 1.25 lakh post offices will be digitised, while speaking at the ‘Future Unleashed’ Technology Conference organised by Microsoft.

Outlining the efforts undertaken by the government, Prasad said, the ‘Digital Saksharata Abhiyan’ was geared towards making at least one person in every household digitally literate. He reiterated Prime Minister’s digital equation that IT (Information Technology) + IT (Indian Talent) = IT (India’s Tomorrow).

The Minister laid stress on innovation in developing low cost technologies that would help in taking the Digital India to the doorstep of the poorest of the poor. He said Microsoft’s theme for celebrating 25 years in India goes very well with the philosophy of the government.
