The initiative is creating a group of village level entrepreneurs.

 

Modi said, addressing the Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs), who run these centres, via video conferencing. Digital India was launched with an aim to connect India’s villages and youth. Over the last four years it has brought a slew of services to the doorsteps of the common man, he said.

 

“Every aspect of digital empowerment has been worked on, from rolling out fibre optics in villages, to digital literacy,” Modi said. Also, digital literacy is rising and pension-related issues for elderly are now getting resolved through technology. Modi asked the beneficiaries to press traders and shopkeepers to install ‘Bhim’ app to facilitate paying for goods and services digitally.
