Abstract

The Digital India initiative is spreading its wings in every area possible. The Government of India has launched the Digital India programme with the vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Digital India is an umbrella programme that covers multiple Government Ministries and Departments. It weaves together a large number of ideas and thoughts into a single, comprehensive vision so that each of them can be implemented as part of a larger goal. Digital India is to be implemented by the entire Government with overall coordination being done by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY). Digital India aims to provide the much needed thrust to the nine pillars of growth areas, namely Broadband Highways, Universal Access to Mobile Connectivity, Public Internet Access Programme, e-Governance: Reforming Government through Technology, e-Kranti - Electronic Delivery of Services, Information for All, Electronics Manufacturing, IT for Jobs and Early Harvest programme. Each of these areas is a complex programme in itself and cuts across multiple Ministries and Departments. This paper addresses the government `s Digital India Initiative for imparting education to its students. Digital Literacy is the ability of individuals and communities to understand and use digital technologies for meaningful actions within life situations. Through eBasta, the government plans to empower both society and increase knowledge through digital mode, eBasta project that provides a framework to digitize the school books. The entire initiative would be managed and run by Center for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), the government backed organization which is responsible for research and development under DeitY.
