Sub Policy 4: Digital Inclusion

Digital technology has opened new domains of exclusion and privilege for some, leaving some part of the population isolated from the digital realm. The process of Digital inclusion is defined here as the effort to enable all sections of the population to access use and benefit from the digital technologies. The primary area of digital inclusion is access but access alone will not suffice. The ability to adopt and apply the digital technologies by every citizen is needed to reach the ultimate goal of creating digitally inclusive communities.
