The Government has presented growth oriented and investor friendly budget. Allocation of 7060 cr. for 100 smart cities will give impetus to technology related spending. Government’s Digital India initiative to focus on broadband connectivity at village level with improved access to services through IT enabled platforms would go a long way in bridging the digital divide. Another welcome step is the setting up of National Rural Internet and Technology Mission for services in villages and schools, training in IT skills and E-Kranti for government service delivery and governance scheme. It is also encouraging to see the budget’s focus on employability and entrepreneur skills through setting up of Skill India program.
