India’s Digital Heroine sees launch of 3,000 capacity it wants for 24 hours

India’s Digital Heroine, an ambitious yet under-funded initiative to strengthen the digital skills of younger people in India, has been declared a “Vision Phase Tested By Tata Cyber said” (DHT) for a period of 4,000 days by the Indian government . The initiative serves a two-pronged purpose of boosting data storage and protection skills in this segment. Families are cashing in on the opportunity to catch up on the digital cinema, suggesting a significant cost savings by families under the scheme.

“Digital Heroine is the first of its kind and it is funded by the government of India,” Rajo Bhushan, ex-executive chairman, Tata Cyber told ET, as the organization gears up to expand its programme. “It allows people to be trained to develop software skills like computer-assisted drawing that will enable parents to handle digital functions and reducing the use of electronics and endangering their lives.”

The initiative will be rolling out over the coming months in various cities in India. The HRD, which is MVP, will abide by the Government of India’s Local Self-help Code of Conduct (LSC) and will provide 3,000 capacity for immediate use, and 4,000 capacity for 24-hours, in the state and the regions best suited to the HRD.

The area that will be targeted at is Kannada and Gilgitis, where the HRD is currently working. “We feel that young people have been hearing their voice and are finding new rhythm in their lives. As to technology, this has been brought in,” the HRD chief executive officer, Dr. VenKle, said.

The organization acquired 20 CCTV and 150 Chat Apps and has made them available at various key locations, he added. Giving a hint as to its intentions, he said, “The HRD sees it as the first step towards building a digital HRD.”

The heroic initiative was launched by the HRD in 2017. It is expected to serve only to children between the age of 7 and 10.

The HRD will also be bringing at least three other HRDs, distributed in different states. “We are banking on making people aware of the various HRDs which will have access to the digital HRD. It will be great to see the ability of young people in India to learn digital skills for successful work,” said the HRD CEO, Dr. VenKle.
