Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today flagged off two vans of Digital India Outreach Campaign from his official residence here.

Flagging off the vehicles, Das said such campaigns were important to penetrate Digital India Services in rural and semi urban areas and were an important tool for bridging the Digital Divide.

He recalled Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s words — “India’s talent plus information technology is equal to India tomorrow”.

“Awareness (of Digital India programme) is important. Change will come through hard work,” Das said.

According to a release, two campaign vehicles would cover 24 districts and the vans will stay in each district for 20 to 25 days.

The objective of the campaign is to create awareness about the programme and its major initiatives through various point of presence like ‘Digi Sewa Kendras’, panchayats, schools, colleges, haats etc.

The vans are equipped with audio visual facilities, Net connectivity and others and will inform and educate citizens in rural areas, especially to the youth, about the initiatives of Digital India in an interactive manner, the release said.

People will be informed about services like Digital Postal Services, Digital Services by state governments, National Scholarship Portal, Digital Locker and Aadhaar.

The campaign was nationally flagged off on May 30 from Delhi for the phase-I campaign in 14 states, including Jharkhand.
