Digital India project is aiming to offer a one-stop shop for government services and would use the mobile phone as the backbone of its delivery mechanism. Digital India promises to transform India into a connected knowledge economy offering world-class services at the click of a mouse and will be implemented in a phased manner, said Union Minister for Communications & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad. Prasad launched the Bharat Domain Name in Devanagari Script. The initiative covers Hindi, Bodo, Dogri, Konkani, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali and Sindhi in Devanagari Script. Most of the future expansion of the internet is going to come from Asia, Africa and the developing world. Local languages, content and culture will increasingly become important themes for the future expansion of the internet, the minister said, adding that mobile devices and applications as well as social media will be important determinants of this growth.
