ICT literacy and Education in India

In my essay, I’m forcusing on utility gap such as ICT literacy in India, examining devices access such as PC and Mobile. Also, I’m trying to find the  solutions to alleviate the gap, in terms of effective and efficient educational opportunity among citizen.

Since 1980s, India has recorded the economic development promoting ICT industry as its national development core engine. Nowadays, ICT industry in India is recognized as one of the successful model. Indeed, this industry has been contributed in many economic positive impact inside and outside of the country.

On the other hand, it is also observable to find the utility gap among the citizen.  Mobile phone seems to spread rather than PC. In the global network society, who have the benefit? Are there any left community to catch up this benefit? In the case of India, Internet process is getting much more common administration tool and general infrastructure among the people day by day. Many opportunities are announced and taken the process through ICT application.

Therefore, it could be said ICT device access is nowadays a common tool to be utilized by citizen to gather & dispatch information, catch up opportunities and be on the process. Beyond various languages and life styles in India, this topic can be discussed not only on digital divide, service & product provision by the company. But I focus much on educational opportunity provision as the effective intervention.
