The internet is buzzing about PM Narendra Modi’s ambitious initiative, ‘Digital India’. The programme has a lot on its agenda. And Modi’s 5-day visit to the US, aims at capturing the much needed international attention to India’s budding digital scenario. From the latest social media trends and news, we can say that he is doing a spectacular job at it. But then, as an Indian, how can we contribute to Digital India’s success?
Lakhs of Indians are showing their support, by changing their Facebook DP, with a superimposed Indian flag. The trend was kicked off by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg and Modi, prior to their Q&A session at the Facebook town hall. Zuckerberg is already actively onboard the initiative trying to push internet.org as a gateway to the internet, for the rural Indian population. And now with all the other tech leaders like Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella, Tim Cook and John Chambers, joining hands with our PM Narendra Modi, we can be hopeful that change will happen. For the better or for the worst? That’s for time to tell.
The Digital India initiative of the Govt. of India hinges on the idea of creating a digital network that can bridge both rural and urban sectors of India. And moreover, it aims at building infrastructures that encourage active digitization of Govt. documents and services.
The Indian government has already set up websites where you can help out. DigitizeIndia.gov.in is such a website where you can be a Digital Contributor. Here you can contribute by entering data (digitizing physical documents) and earn a handsome remuneration for it.
Here’s how you can register and get started with digitizing India.
We recommend you click on ‘See Live’, install Whatfix’s Flows Editor extension and view the flows below in a live interactive mode.
Once you are done with the registration, you can start contributing. This flow will show you how you can contribute, earn rewards and redeem them as remunerations.
We all know that, in this new era of technology, each one of us has a part to play. And through this initiative, we are given an opportunity to delve into these realms and make a difference. So don’t just neglect it as yet another happening, instead embrace it and make it ‘your’ happening. With a bit of help from every Indian, we can make Digital India a huge success! 🙂
