Bringing out a volume as an honor to our Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a dream of us and the well-wishers of technology beloved people especially after the launched of "Digital India Campaign" project in 1 st July, 2015.The book is a collection of 25 essays and articles which are drawn from inter-disciplinary fields and touch upon the multiple contours of "Digital India Campaign" initiated by our Honorable Prime Minister. The issues and concerns raised by the authors of these articles are of immense significance in the specific digital literacy development contexts of India. The academicians and researchers working on and in India and outside the country have shown anxieties and raised the criticalities of Digital India Project in India vis-à-vis development. An attempt has been made to introduce the gist of the paper that incorporated in this book in this section briefly:

    A.K. Hua., Faradiella, M. K., Z. Ashaari., S. M. Praveena  and Nisfariza M. Noor traced how GIS and RS technologies have been continuously developed in terms of the hardware, software, data, methods, and people, becoming an important tools system to sustain human quality life. Experts successfully developed the technologies to integrate between GIS and RS, and these opportunities provide benefits to various fields in applying the system, especially from a water resources perspective. Although there are several limitations in GIS and RS, experts are encouraged to frequently apply the technology to detect weaknesses in systems and find changes that could be made to maintain the quality of GIS and RS in usage in the future.

 

Amit K Kashyap has made an effort to make an appraisal of critical issues to good electronic governance and analysis of Digital India Project in lite of National Cyber Security Policy, 2013 and the possible manners in which such risk can be mitigated in future for good e-governance. The cyber-attacks on the government sites, financial institution and private members account shows that Indian Cyberspace is vulnerable to a large number of attacks on crucial information and it implies that Indian cyber laws are not effective in dealing with the problem.

    Aniruddha V Babar emphasized on "Net Neutrality" as a key parameter for the success of digital India campaign through his paper. He beautifully explained how internet user need to be change the decision when the service provider use the internet transmission system for their business purpose only and finally offers some valuable suggestions in this regards.

    Dr. Chander B.  Nagar and Dr. Banrali Bhowmick (Ghosh) has made an attempt to draw a conceptual framework to understand the discourse on e-governance and its impediments in context of India. After all, the concerns of good governance has conceived an idea that e-governance is necessary to promote transparency and efficiency in administration. It has also been emphasized that, this should not be treated as a mere policy option but certain practices of the use of technology in administration should be introduced at large and shall be maintained if, already in practice.

    According to Dr. D. G Hanumanthappa the role  of  the Information and Communication   technology   (ICT)   in   the   delivery   of   services   to  the   public   and   government   sector   has obtained acceptance.  In fact,  the technology and the methods used  in  E-Governance   project   offers a roadmap for efficient delivery of services at the door step and the development of any country depends on the uses of   E-   Governance to a large extent. It has ushered  in  transparency  in  the governing process; through single window; reduction   in   corruption, convenience and empowerment though   challenges are there in Indian context. Thus he focused on the role of   e- governance for   the   government and citizen  of  India and also has made an attempt to finds  the   sectors that are benefited through e-governance policy and   also focuses a list of E-Governance projects functioning  currently  in   India.

    Sree, K. Bharadwaj stated that the vision being to transform India into a Digital India is not simple and easy to achieve. A lot of issues and problems both technical and legal in nature are to be addressed by the Government which are very important to gain and the confidence and trust of the people in the programme. Thus he dealt with the techno-legal issues in the Digital India Campaign and also tries to bring out the existing legal framework on the same. A special emphasis has been made on the offences and punishments under the Indian Information Technology Act, 2000.

    Dipon Ghosh gave an overview of the project of Digital India focusing on the vision and pillars. The paper then discussed the probable impact of the project on economic development. It is concluded that the project has huge potential to accelerate the pace of economic development if properly implemented. It can bring revolutionary change in governance and delivery of government services. But the project also involves a number of challenges in implementing the project. The challenges are digital illiteracy, huge cost, lack of coordination among departments and overall backwardness of rural India. The paper concluded that the people should be made aware of the project and its benefits and for that wide publicity is important along with the establishment of adequate infrastructure.

    The document   prepared by Dr Francisco J. Güemez Ricalde explains in an approximate way and condensed, the proposal of the assessment model SROI emerged in 2009 by the cabinet of ministers in the United Kingdom and, although its application is limited to social projects on a reduced scale, it is feasible and advisable its deployment unlike other assessment models that are specific to some of the economic, social or environmental that can be evaluated together with the SROI model proposed. In this article with a very Mexican vision of seeing things, i.e. with the experience of the digitization in Mexico, and very committed to the original assessment model, and document translated by CIVIS in 2013, is that here's a first approximation to what might be the assessment of the SROI Digitisation Program in India. To him evaluation of Digitisation Program of India can generate amount of views, comments, both positive and negative without giving enough information in support of the possible outcomes of quantitatively and qualitatively from direct information on the different stakeholders  involved,  information, analyse, categorize and measure the changes to its projection in the future period of life of the program to 2020 that has been given to know the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as well as measure the generation of social value through the calculation of the ratio is without a doubt the best opinion and vision of the scope of the Program.

    Dr. Janaki M C outlined about theDigitalization of Investigation and Detection of Crime’. The paper shows that crime has become a part of the society and to reduce the rate of crime technology can be used to a large extent to detect the criminals. Technology is always a double-edged sword which can be utilized for both constructive and destructive purpose. Technology is now in safe hands to guard the society and keep it safe.  

    Dr. Pankaj K. Paul attempts to analyze the scope of digitalization in higher education based on micro survey in few colleges of Paschim Medinipur district in West Bengal.  The study comprises of one hundred college teachers, eighty students both in urban and rural areas and one hundred local people of Paschim Medinipur district in West Bengal. The analysis were undertaken by the ‘chi-square’ test and the results indicate that digitalization have a significant positive impact in promotion of higher education. A binary logit regression model has been applied to establish the nature and magnitude of association between digitalization and a set of indicators upon which success of it depends. Again, students’t- test has also been used to examine the assumed hypothesis whether any discrepancy among the respondents about attitudinal differences about digitalization in education according to social, economic, educational status, gender, localities etc.

    Pratisha P. Deka highlighted various aspects related to digital literacy on the basis of secondary data. After analyzing wide-ranging issues and prospects it was found that to be technologically versed and getting acquainted with the knowhow of the computer operations has become need of the hour for keeping pace with today`s digital world.

    Rahul Mishra discusses the position of India in e-governance environment and issues and challenges ahead. E-governance can be attained in four steps: Information or Cataloguing, Transaction, Vertical Integration & horizontal integration. India has already achieved the first and the second stage of e-governance. Presently the country is on the verge of attaining the third stage, and moving towards the fourth or the final stage, that is, horizontal integration, which is most challenging.

    Reetwika Mukherjee puts its focus to explore the various data security threats involved in a typical digitalized environment that we need to be careful of, especially for an overpopulated country like India. With the advent of digitalization of the services, all our Personally Identifiable Information (PIIs) like name, address, date of birth, PAN card number, Passport number, Aadhar number, phone number, bank account details, credit card number, credit history, employer details, educational credentials, photo, email ID, personal signature, criminal records (if any) etc. – everything would become easily accessible to anyone using the services and associated resources. In short, it would become openly public to the whole world with or without our knowledge, thus heavily increasing the chance of misuse by anyone. So, along with going digital, we should also plan hard to safeguard our sensitive information from hackers, fraudsters and criminals.

    CMA Dr. S. K. Jha stated that the world has benefited tremendously from technology especially through Internet, Social media and now Mobile. Digitalization is able to play a pivot role in solving the unresolved problems of development that can reach large sections of the Indian population. The digital divide constitutes a major barrier to equitable and sustainable development and bringing it can promote nation's growth. Digital India Programme has been initiated with new hope. Against this background, a modest attempt has been made in this paper to cover the dynamics of this new initiative - Digital India.

    Nipan Haloi through his paper entitled ‘Digital India project: A Critical Analysis’ argued that India should be digitized at the same time the poverty of the poor people also should be eliminated. Then only every people of India will be able to take the benefit of the Digital India Project and the India will be digitized in a true sense.

    Saptarshi Paul positively stressed that digital India (DI) Initiative is going to be a boon for the information starved citizens of India if implemented successfully. Digital India is already on the go and various ministries and Government departments are launching their apps supported by mobiles and smart devices like- Railways (CleanMyCoach.com), Confederation of all India Traders (CIAT), National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), Aadhaar Mobile to Agriculture (Agri-Market) and eDISTRICT (Service-Tracker). These aps launched by various ministries and Government Departments are getting positive response to their apps and websites. The same or more can be expected about apps related to Civil Aviation too. The upper middle class and middle class is already availing the aviation services and with more outreach and awareness among the common mass , surely the dream of making India the largest Civil Aviation market of the world can be made possible.

    Satyajit Das used his pen to analyze the effect of digitalization especially on economy and its relevant dimensions. He found that the process of digitalization helps the people worldwide to preserve, access and share an original document that may only available earlier to those who visits its physical location. Digitalization ensures to build up a society, where everyone can conserve and preserve the knowledge of the past and present for the future.

    Srikanta Nandi present his paper to analyze the opinion of government officials, common people, teachers and students about the enhancement of ‘Digital Literacy’ (DL) in common people including students in Burdwan district of West Bengal. He found that (1) Government officials and common people, there exists significant variation of opinion about the positive impact of development of infrastructure on digital literacy; (2) People of APL categories and the people of BPL categories, there exists significant variation of opinion about the positive impact of socio-economic status on digital literacy; (3)The government officials of age below 35 years and the government officials of age 35 and above 35 years, there exists no significant variation of opinion about the positive impact of government policies on digital literacy and (4) The large users of electronic gadgets and less users of electronic gadgets, there exists no significant variation of opinion about the positive impact of awareness of rural people on digital literacy.

    Dr. Subhrajit Chatterjee remarks that development is a dynamic and composite aspect and in this regard ‘Sociology of development’ presumes that every aspect of development largely depends on sociological conditions of society for its realization. The paper is a discussion about some advantages and challenges of a major technological development project initiated by the Government of India in recent times to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge Economy from the perspective of sociology of development.

    The paper written by Sudipta, D. Roy highlights the importance of digital literacy and the role of libraries and information centers in promoting digital literacy. The various ICT based services provided by the libraries and the initiative taken by the INFLIBNET Centre for promoting digital literacy among the patrons is the main thrust area of this article.

    Sukumar Mandal discusses the development of digital media archiving cluster in a single window interfaces. Development of digital media archiving cluster for integrated library management and retrieval system on the basis of global recommendation including like Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Open Library Environment Project (OLE) and the recommendation of Integrated Library System for Discovery Interface (ILS-DI) and in these regards selected the most comprehensive open source software for designing and developing the digital resources in a single window interface on Linux like Ubuntu operating system both for librarian  and user for the libraries in India and it accessible for all the people.

    Arpita Dey talked about the importance of digital programme in creating the road map of future India and in this context she urged for a paradigm shift is required in the traditional way of education, which merely focuses on theoretical portion of the education. Until and unless, each and every individual is equipped with the perks of skilled development, the dream and desire to make India a digital hub cannot be turned into reality.lt  And once the rural population along with their urban counterpart is potentially skilled, ‘Digital India’ will transform the interface of the country’s socio-economic dynamics and it will bring systems and infrastructure up to speed and leverage the country’s workforce, establishing a firm foundation towards sustainable practices and eventually progress.

    K Muthulakshmi outlined a descriptive study and focuses on the vision of Digital India and the impact of FDI in this context. The paper helps in finding ways for promoting Digital India, indicating e-waste and boosting the growth of the Indian economy as well.

    S Tewari through his article entitled "Digital India Initiative:  An analysis on prospects, hurdles and reality for India" attempts to analyse the Digital India initiative, expectations from it, possible impacts and constraints at the ground level. The paper highlighted that it is important to first address the basic issues and take measures for providing the basic requirements before going digital.

    Ritumani Haloi and Pubali Das Purkayastha have made an attempt entitled "Strategy for Digital Inclusion: Experience from New Generation" especially in the Barak Valley of Assam. The authors demand that given its geographical isolation and the generic lack of development, the structure of rural people in this region is likely to be quite distinct as compared to other progressive areas of the state. Understanding the importance of "Digital India Campaign" and its inclusion in rural e-infrastructure development is therefore crucial for designing a comprehensive program of "Digital India Campaign" that is specifically suited to the needs of the region. The paper highlighted that increasing number of technology user or e-literate person is not a matter of issue but the way we access, understand, and use information in reading, writing and interacting in our social and professional lives is serious concern.

    Thus all the authors tried their level best to cover the dynamics of digital literacy project to realize the dream of our Prime Minister Modi in a comprehensive manner. The project of digital India is in infant stage, so there is enormous unfinished agenda for India and it needs to address it effectively and expeditiously. Apart from academic value, this volume gives food for thought to the technology user and development thinkers and policy makers as it raised and addressed different issues of digital India programme and its development.
