Digital technology Druv project of Tata Trusts and Digital India in Rajasthan felicitates outstanding field functionaries
The Tata Trusts and Digital India partnered Druv project of converting a TV into smart screen through a customised centre-box by Tata Trusts and Digital India was undertaken through CULP-NGO in selected villages of Jamwa Ramgarh block of rural Jaipur.

The free Druv centre-box, called the 'knowledge box' or 'Gyan ka Pitara' was installed in each eligible rural house in the beginning of this year and beneficiaries were helped to make proper use of the digital content being beamed on them.

According to project holders, Druv project is an unusual attempt to realise digital empowerment, social inclusion, digital inclusion and financial inclusion. Moreover, the project has already crossed the mark of 5000 beneficiary households in rural Jaipur.

Keeping the foregoing in view, a one-day event called "Druv Se Pragati" to felicitate the field functionaries of the project called Druv Champions and Druv Mitras, was organized on June 21 at Government Senior Secondary School, Ramgarh.

The event is meant to bring together renowned social researchers, bureaucrats, development practitioners, entrepreneurs and community members to witness the Project Druv that is striving for a paradigm shift in delivering useful curated multimedia contents on TV in domains such as e-governance, education, agriculture, and health.

"Despite below-par ranking in a number of socio-economic and environmental aspects, Rajasthan witnesses an array of developmental activities funded by domestic and international donor agencies. Amidst myriad development interventions in Rajasthan, Project Druv is an unusual attempt to realise the digital empowerment of the rural community," said the project holders.
