Digital Content Gives Opportunity for India's Regional Languages
Times of India reports engaged in various initiatives under the government's 'Digital India' campaign, global tech giant Google is focusing on key areas like bringing more Indic language content online and helping 20 million small and medium enterprises set up Internet presence by 2017. Though India is now the second-largest Internet market in the world, there is still a great deal of work to be done, Google VP and managing director, South East Asia and India, Rajan Anandan told PTI.
"That is why we are excited to be a partner to the Prime Minister's vision for Digital India, with its focus on empowerment, development, growth and governance," he added. PM Narendra Modi had launched the government's ambitious 'Digital India' programme at the Digital India week. The event was attended by who's who of India Inc and top executives of foreign companies, who committed to invest Rs 4.5 lakh crore for the ambitious campaign that aims to provide telephony and fast Internet for all.
Hopefully India's regional languages will get a boost with growth in e-commerce and the Digital India programme.
