This is the new rural reality!! Let's explore this further to see how Technology & Digitization is slowly but surely empowering and transforming rural India.
We are well aware that the Indian economy is predominantly rural with over two thirds of its population and workforce residing in rural areas. Rural India contributes a substantial part of the Total Net Value added in many sectors with an overall 46% contribution to our national income. With a population of 833 mn people (which incidentally is larger than rural China) residing in 640,867 villages, it is projected that by 2050 more than half of India's population will still be rural despite rising urbanization. Thus the growth and development of the rural economy is imperative for the inclusive development and overall growth of the country.
