Pradhan Mantri Gramin Digital Saksharta Abhiyan (PMGDISHA)

The Scheme has been initiated with the vision to empower at least one person per household with crucial digital literacy skills by 2020. This is expected to touch the lives of more than 250 million individuals over the next few years. PMGDISHA is an effort to complement government's vision to transform one from each household as digitally literate. The project aims at helping adults with low technological literacy develop the skills they need to interact in an increasingly digital world.

The Pradhan Mantri Gramin Digital Saksharta Abhiyan is a dynamic and integrated platform of digital literacy awareness, education and capacity programmes that will help rural communities fully participate in the global digital economy. Our focus is on making technology central to enabling change.

The PMGDISHA Exam for "Direct Candidates" has been implemented for all those general candidates who wish to obtain PMGDISHA Certificates. The candidates need not undergo any specialized training or contact any training partner for this exam.To register as direct candidate the applicant must perform the electronic KYC and agrees to the terms and condition for becoming a beneficiary in PMGDISHA scheme. Candidate data will be shared with the examination agencies for the purpose of certification only. If a candidate wants to deregister himself/herself, in such a case CSC will not share the e-KYC data further for issuance of the certificate. Such data may be stored for audit purpose only as per the programme guidelines.
