Government has launched 23 new programs to empower Indians with Internet and Technology. 

While inaugurating the new programs, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asked all states to emulate these visionary programs, and empower the nation

He said, “The basic objective should be to scale, because unless services are taken to the masses, digital inclusion will not succeed as asymmetry of information leads to asymmetry of opportunity..”
