As majority of Indians do not have access to the internet, people do not have equal opportunities to develop skills that can make them employable. In today’s era, where the majority of us gain information, knowledge and most importantly skills of all kind from the internet, it is a sad truth that a huge majority of the people are still deprived of this essential resource.
