What is Digital Connect?
Recognizing and maneuvering a variety of digital avenues, as well as assessing their viability as a communication medium, constitute digital literacy.
As a technology driven society, India is making strides. Nevertheless, the prevailing state of digital literacy in India evidently demonstrates that, it is not only necessary to enhance interconnection through the expansion of telecom industry, but it is also necessary to cultivate skillsets among the populace in order to fulfill the goal of “leaving no one behind” in the digital era. The government is helping individuals with inadequate technical literacy learn the skills they need to interact in an era of the digital age through programmes like the National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM).
