Digital India: Take a look at how it will change your life

On Wednesday evening PM Narendra Modi formally launched Digital India, a programme to improve digital connectivity and to use IT services to deliver various services and information to people in India. The programme is fairly exhaustive. It has a number of elements in it and a number of other smaller proposals and programmes that would roll out gradually.

Here are 6 ways the Digital India can potentially change your life.
1. No need to submit documents
