NDLM is a digital literacy programme which is one of the components of Digital India programme which is the dream programme of the government. This programme focuses on providing digital literacy to a person from each and every family of the country. Making one person in every family digitally literate is one of the integral components of the Prime Minister's vision of “Digital India”.
(NDLM) Scheme has been formulated to impart IT training to 52.5 lakh persons, including Anganwadi and ASHA workers and authorized ration dealers in all the States/UTs across the country so that the non‐ IT literate citizens are trained to become IT literate so as to enable them to actively and effectively participate in the democratic and developmental process and also enhance their livelihood. Altogether 52.5 lakh persons, including Anganwadi and ASHA workers and authorized ration dealers will be trained under the programme in two phases. In the first phase, 10 lakh beneficiaries will be trained under the scheme. Nine lakh beneficiaries will be eligible for training fee support from the government. The rest 1, 00,000 beneficiaries will be trained by the industry and civil society partners. Under NDLM we have provided digital literacy to more than 18,000 beneficiaries in all parts of Tamil Nadu.
