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

Application forms would be filled online and signature taken digitally. Payment will be made through e-pay service of the government.
3. Internet in rural india

Bharat Net, a high-speed network for internet connectivity across the country. If you are in a village, you would be able to, possibly, enjoy cat videos on YouTube with a high-speed internet connection, that is if you are into cat videos.
4. Modern Post offices

Now post offices will become multi-service kiosks. They will actually work like cyber cafes that will help people without internet connectivity to avail services.
5. Wifi everywhere
