Hyderabad: CGI, in partnership with Nasscom Foundation, inaugurated its second National Digital Literacy Mission Centre in India. The centre located in Rasoolpura, Hyderabad, is designed to support the Government of India’s National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM).

The centre will benefit 1,000 people through training on the use of digital devices like computers and mobile phones. Once trained, the beneficiaries will be able to connect with other people through email and social media, purchase from e-commerce sites, pay bills online, and access online government services with ease.

It follows CGI’s first Digital Literacy Centre launched in the K R Puram area of Bangalore on August 11 and it plans to launch two more centres this month, one in Chennai and another one in Bangalore.

George Mattackal, president, CGI’s Asia Pacific Global Delivery Centres of Excellence said, “Opening our second Digital Literacy Centre is a product of this commitment and a fulfilment of our strategic goal of being responsible corporate citizens.”

The Center for Action on Disabled Rights and Empowerment (CADRE) is the implementation partner for this programme and is responsible for operations and community engagement. Nasscom Foundation is the overall owner of the programme and will provide monitoring and impact assessments.
