The Ra­jasthan govern­ment has lunched the eSakhi pro­gramme, a statewide drive that aims to pro­vide digital lit­er­acy to over 1.5 lakh women. Other than mak­ing women dig­i­tally lit­er­ate, the pro­gramme will help them ben­e­fit from pub­lic wel­fare schemes and avail e- gov­er­nance ser­vices through their mo­bile phones.

The ini­tia­tive is an ex­ten­sion of the Bhamashah Yo­jana fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion pro­gramme. Sup­ported by more than 35,000 women vol­un­teers, eSakhi is be­ing im­ple­mented by the Ra­jasthan Knowl­edge Cor­po­ra­tion, through its over 7,000 cen­tres op­er­at­ing across the state. To ap­ply for ad­mis­sion, more than 35,000 women have down­loaded the eSakhi app.
