Published on 17 February, 2016 at 10:35 am By

In order to make ‘Digital India’ a success in rural hinterland, the Department of Telecom (DoT) will soon make it mandatory for mobile phones to support Hindi and at least one regional language.

“Three months down the line, there will be a regulation that will make every mobile phone sold in India mandatory to have English, Hindi and one regional language,” a senior DoT official told PTI.

Through this move, the government aims to communicate better with citizens and wants users to access government services like e-payment.

The official further said, “The broadband cannot be limited to English-speaking middle and upper class Indians and it needs to go down to rural areas.”



 

The government is also running a programme called ‘Digital Saksharta Abhiyan (DISHA)’ to impart IT training for digital literacy.

Under the programme, a person is made IT literate so that he or she can operate digital devices such as mobile phones, tablets and the like and send and receive emails and search the internet for information.
