Jaipur: Mahindra World City Jaipur Ltd. (MWC Jaipur) inaugurated a Digital Literacy Centre in nearby Laliya-Ka-Bas village, as part of its CSR efforts to support inclusive development via widespread digital literacy.
Laliya-Ka-Bas is home to about 600 inhabitants and is the third village identified by MWC Jaipur for implementation of its community digital literacy program.
The Government of India launched the Digital India campaign in 2015 with a vision to transform India into a digitally empowered knowledge economy.
Complementing the Government’s goal to ensure each house is digitally literate, MWC Jaipur aims to empower the inhabitants of Laliya-Ka-Bas with basic computer and internet skills training.
The objective is to introduce the villagers to the power of the digital economy, for use in utilities payments, banking transactions or in connecting to employment opportunities available online, among others.
The centre is equipped with the latest infrastructure and training facilities.
Sanjay Srivastava, Business Head, Mahindra World City, Jaipur & Director, ORIGINS, Ahmedabad said, “Through the Digital Literacy Centre, we aim to enable positive and long-lasting community transformation towards a digitally connected future.”
