The Shivaji University in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, recently conducted a one-day workshop with an aim to spread awareness about Digital India among the youth.
The workshop was a joint effort by the university, National Service Scheme and Central government’s e-administration Department and Electronic and Information Technology Department.
“The Central government is working hard on digitisation in schools and colleges. They are working out on it well so far,” said Akilur Rahman from the National e-administration Department.
“Technology has proved to be beneficial in health, defence, education, and environment departments. Technological progress in each department is quite visible. Across the world, there are countries that have adopted digitisation and it has worked out well for them. The Indian government is walking on the same line which proves to be beneficial for us,” he added.
“Youths can spread the word about Digital India and can educate others in this initiative too. Such workshops are quite useful for spreading awareness about technology that nobody can ignore these days,” said VN Shinde, acting registrar, Shivaji University.
