It said that by establishing two-way communication (two-way communication) in the local language from the people living in the villages, digital availability of all government services will be ensured. Mobile-centric technology aims to increase the efficiency of villagers and make them more responsible citizens. For this, websites operated in local languages will also be made.
Sources in the ministry say that the government is trying to bring government departments and the public closer to each other through technology. Right now the government is laying emphasis on building digital infrastructure in the villages. Digital profile of every household will be created in 2021-22.
During this time, a profile will be prepared after surveying the internet, mobile, desktop and digital literacy so that services can be delivered electronically from door to door in the villages, while digital literacy can also be increased.
Sources say that this is the reason that the government is already working towards connecting villages with high speed internet. So that all the plans to make villages technically empowered can come up in the coming years.
With the creation of digital infrastructure in villages, government services will be able to reach the public digitally without paper. The vision document prepared by the Ministry of Rural Development says that through this scheme, information, education and communication (IEC) will be promoted up to 70 percent of the country’s population.
