Let’s pledge to bring maximum number of people from the rural India under the ambit of digital literacy. With this aim, PMGDISHA has intended to register over 10 lakh candidates in a single day.
On September 5, 2019, which is celebrated as Teachers’ Day, we will be celebrating National PMGDISHA Day. In other words, we have marked this as a day for empowerment through digital literacy. The target is to bring more and more people under ‘Digital Saksharta’.
Under the PMGDISHA, CSC are utilised as training centres to train rural citizen. Following the successful completion of the training, every candidate is given a certificate.
On National PMGDISHA Day, persons in rural areas, acrossStates/UTs, digitally literate, reaching to around 40% of rural households. Thus the Scheme aims to bridge the digital divide, specifically targeting the ruralpopulation including the marginalised sections of society like SC/ST, Below Poverty Line (BPL), women, differently-abled persons and minorities. ”
