Hyderabad, July 2, 2015: After Make in India and Clean India (Swachh Bharat), the Government of India has launched its 3rd major campaign, called Digital India with the objectives of enabling digital empowerment of citizens, facilitating digital infrastructure as a utility to every citizen and providing governance & services on demand.
Digital India got underway on Wednesday through a week-long programme.
Under the leadership of Minister KT Rama Rao, the ITE&C Department also simultaneously planned for a very ambitious Digital Telangana programme. In fact some of our goals under Digital Telangana far exceed Digital India's goals.
Digital Telangana stands on two pivots; each of them representing the supply and the demand side. On the supply side, the main aim is to ensure that digital facilities become available to each and every person in the state.
This is being made possible through:
a. Laying OFC to each household using the water grid trenches
b. Providing 4G services in the entire state
c. Wifi in major cities and towns
d. e-Panchayat scheme under which a One Stop Shop kiosk will be available in each Panchayat.
