Many years ago, India was presented with PINCODE system or Postal Index Code System, which was the beginning of Digital India. Six digits was all it took to bring a letter to the right place. It did overcome many hurdles and complexities. Several years later just two digits, 0 and 1 solved the hassle of physical media to travel around to give information’s. It helped to pass information through the air, satellites in space, submarine cables, lines and signals that enabled magical transportation of information carrying words, sounds, pictures, music, maps, warnings, location services and even money.

•Digital technology is getting successful every second, every day.
•People in poorest of the villages have dual sim mobile phones now with easy access to Internet.
•Smart phone sales have increased drastically, almost every Indian jumped from 2G/3G to 4G.
•Children gets to learn and adapt so many skills and variety of concepts from smart phones.
•From booking cabs to hotels to ordering food, everything is done online.
•Adhaar provides identity that can be used by resident from anywhere and anytime to establish his/her identity to avail services.
•Digi locker enables resident to receive, store, upload and share documents electronically.
•Dozens of digital India services are helping rural residents to receive entitlements at their doorsteps.

However, Digital illiteracy is prevalent in many towns and villages in India. Cities have adopted digitalization but limited to certain extend. All Indians should be educated with the benefits of using cards or online payment methods. Jan Dhan Scheme launched by the government succeeded in bringing millions into the banking system .It saves people’s valuable time.

Therefore, the best thing we could do is to use the services that are currently being provided and spread them around all common person to create more awareness.
