Right to Information in regional languages

Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi seems to be a storehouse of ideas to develop the nation in the best possible way. Going digital is one way to put the country on a global map for all innovations but Modi just doesn’t stop there. After Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme was made available in all 23 official languages besides English & Hindi; he has now directed ministries to create websites in regional languages. He wants the websites to be multilingual as people across the country access information in their own language on digital platforms.

Apart from the ministry of electronics and information, universities like IIT Madras and Jadavpur University have been roped in to bail out with translations.

Thats what we call Think Global, Act Local.
