The Digital India campaign was launched in 2015 by our Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi. The goal of this campaign was to provide internet connectivity to rural areas, launch applications that facilitate online payments as well as move businesses and other institutions online so that they can better connect with the world. The campaign aimed to create a stable digital infrastructure in the country and help people easily access government services digitally.

Today, almost every household in India has a smartphone. People are using the internet to study, build their businesses, learn new things, send and receive money, buy various things as well as access government facilities such as healthcare.

We are currently living in a digital world which is becoming more and more technologically advanced as days go by. There was a time when we had to go to markets to buy groceries, visit banks to deposit or withdraw money, go to railway stations to book tickets and attending school always meant going to a physical place.

Now, one can buy everything from groceries to luxury products by global brands with just one click. One can book cabs, buses, trains and flights online as well as plan their vacation and stay.

Gone are the days when we had to go to markets to buy groceries, visit banks to deposit or withdraw money, go to railway stations to book tickets and attend school always meant going to a physical place. Today, one can buy everything from locally-sourced groceries to luxury products produced by global brands with just one click. One can book cabs, buses, trains and flights online as well as plan their vacation and stay. Even our education system has evolved and become digital. Now, students can attend lectures and even take examinations online.  

Until a few years ago, while the rest of the world was already reaping the benefits of digitalisation, India was still far behind. Most of our villages had no internet connectivity and even many people living in urban areas were digitally illiterate.

On 1st July 2015, our prime minister, Mr Narendra Modi, launched a campaign called "Digital India" with the goal of providing internet connectivity to rural areas, launching applications that facilitate online payments as well as moving businesses and other institutions online so that they can better connect with the world. The campaign aimed to create a stable digital infrastructure in the country, help people easily access government services digitally as well as increase digital literacy. 

Under the Digital India campaign, many UPI applications were launched that facilitated online payments and thus, helped the economy. This helped boost India's GDP. Because of digitalisation, paperwork in every sector of work has been reduced which is a great benefit. The digitalisation of India has also boosted the small business market in the country as more and more people are going online with their businesses. This has helped connect buyers and sellers from all parts of the country. 

Although the digital India campaign has been greatly successful, it did face a few challenges when it was first launched. A huge population of the country was digitally illiterate, the digital infrastructure wasn't very stable, and even the speed of the internet being provided was pretty low. There was also a lack of coordination amongst various departments participating in the programme.

However, the campaign managed to overcome all the challenges and India emerged as the second-fastest digital adopter among the major digital economies in the world. Today, India has come a long way in terms of digitalisation and the "Digital India" campaign has played a major role in it.
