India is on the cusp of an information technology revolution. In order to transform the entire ecosystem of public services through the use of information technology, the Government of India has undertaken the Digital India program with the vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Digital India focuses on providing easy accessibility of services to its citizens anytime from anywhere. Digital India also covers several development aspects such as promoting investments, improving ease of doing business, creating IT jobs, encouraging entrepreneurship, providing financial inclusion, promoting literacy, catalyzing growth across all sectors and encouraging women’s participation in the professional, economic and social arena.
