Today is 17th October, a day of special significance to all those who use internet and computers or mobiles in India.
On this day in 2000, the Information Technology Act 2000 was notified. This gave legal recognition to electronic documents, the method of signing an electronic document as well as a method for presenting an electronic document as evidence in a Court.
All this together ushered in the Digital Society of India.
I will be celebrating the day at NALSAR Hyderabad with the students.
Hope some day the MEITy will realize the importance of the day and declare it as the Digital Society Day of India officially.
