Fundamentally, high speed internet is a tool with endless potential and only the digitally literate will have the skills to harness it effectively. 60-year-old LakshmibaiSubhashPatil from SwargaonBarde in Maharashtra knows it better.
Undergoing PMGDISHA training programme completely transformed the life of Ms Patil. She had to travel a long way to enquire and process the pension amount. But the computer literacy has helped her to learn about cashless transactions and other services.
“Now, I have my Digi Locker, where I keep my documents safe. I have also started communicating using emails. The most important thing is that I have started using BHIM app to check whether pension amount has been credited to the account,” said Ms.Patil.
