Kothagudem: With the help of the Information Technology department’s Common Service Center’s (CSC) special-purpose vehicle seven villages in Telangana have been transformed into digital villages as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s digital India and Make in India programmes. The digital villages include Narsingapur (Karimnagar district), Akoli (Adilabad), Mallelamadugu and Gopalapuram (Khammam district).
As part of the initiative, people in the age group of 14-60 years and having Adhaar card are given 20-hour training on use of computer, internet and booking tickets online. They are also trained on sending e-mail, operating youtube.com and so on.
A youth Konda Srinivas of Aswapuram mandal evinced interest and ensured that Gopalapuram and Mallelamadugu villages become digital village with the help of his knowledge. He even received excellence award, besides appreciation from Raj Kishore, vice-chairman of the CSC and from IT Minister K Taraka Rama Rao.
As a result of the training, rural women confined to their homes are able to use computers, smartphones and laptops. The center has taken up e-swavalambika programme, which targets to make 5000 women in seven states self-reliant. As part of it, training is provided in financial literacy, digital literacy, legal literacy, communication skills and skill development.
Over 100 women are undergoing e-swavalambika training in making fashion accessories at Aswapuram and making bangles, ear studs, chains and other artificial ornaments using silk thread. They are being trained to sell their wares online also. In Karimnagar and Adilabad districts, the trainees under e-swavalambika are making LED bulbs and paper plates.
According to officer imparting training Bhargavi, the self-employment training helps women to earn money with low investment. The thread and paper used in making these ornaments is easily available in the market. Online marketing of the goods enables the products reach a wider cross-section of the people.
