The NITI Ayog has suggested this idea in 'Strategy For New India AT 75.' But the suggestion of Ayog is important in view of digital literacy of the country being around at 10 per cent at the moment. A huge population of the country does not have computer, laptop and smart phone. So the government needs special attention on digital literacy in the country.
