This can made possible through digital literacy and digital interventions. Digital literacy, would not only supplement schooling and education but also foster employability, greatly enhancing the quality of livelihood possibilities available to youth from marginalized and impoverished communities.
Digital India aims to digitally empower the citizens of the country. However, this programme isn’t restricted to the urban areas but it also penetrates into the rural hinterlands where connectivity and networks are hard to reach. In order for India to be a digital economy, digital literacy is the starting point. This needs to be ushered by digital connectivity, which can be realized effectively if the corporate sector, social sector institutions and the governmental organizations work towards this goal, collectively.
