Haryana sets IT labs to offer basic and advanced computer training
Haryana state in Northern India will set up IT labs to provide basic computer training as well as application software orientation to citizens and medium level entrepreneurs. In an effort to support the “Digital India” initiative, these labs will cover both basic and advanced level digital literacy topics for different district stakeholders.
While basic digital knowledge will be useful to target the digital gap, the upgrade program will support citizens to find better job placement opportunities. For this, at least four specialized labs will be created in the fields of Fiber Optics, Robotics and Internet of Things.
The IT labs will be set up to complement the current achievements of the National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM) program, which is intended to provide IT literacy to one citizen of each household in India. There are already 13,000 citizens registered for this program in Haryana.
