Today is Digital Society Day of India

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.
