The suggestion for same was made by none other than prime minister Narender Modi.

PM Moodi even held a meeting last month, where he asked email service providers to enable users to ‘sign up for addresses in local languages’, starting with Hindi.



 

According to Rajiv Bansal, joint secretary, Ministry of Electronics and IT, the initiative would be taken up with ‘The Bharat Net project’ which plans to connect 250,000 Gram Panchayats through high-speed Internet.

The idea is to connect people, and give them facility that they are able to utilise when it reaches them.

Bansal explained that ‘an email address is required to access the most basic Internet services’ but not many people across India can actually type in or read English.
