In line with the central government’s Digital India initiative, the Government will on Monday launch its ambitious scheme providing limited free and Internet data to the youth in the state.


Here is everything you need to know about the scheme:


1. Yuva Sanchar Yojana will be unveiled across the state on Monday.


2. The scheme will  provide 100 minutes talk time and 3 GB Internet data free with a SIM card (every month) for youths aged between 16-30 years


3. The government has tied up with  Vodafone for the scheme which is expected to benefit nearly 1.25 lakh youth.

The Digital India initiative is a flagship programme of the Modi Government that seeks to transform the country into a digitally-empowered society and knowledge economy. Launched in July last year, the programme aims to provide a much-needed thrust to areas like broadband highways, universal access to mobile connectivity, public Internet access programme and e-Governance.
