Empowering the Youth: Successful Implementation of the DigiShakti Scheme at Asian School of Business, Noida

On February 17, 2024, the Asian School of Business (ASB) in Noida played a pivotal role in the realization of the “DigiShakti Scheme,” initiated by the Uttar Pradesh Government under the dynamic leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. This groundbreaking initiative aims to propel the vision of Digital India by distributing smartphones to the youth, particularly the technical graduate students passed out in 2023. ASB’s active participation in this distribution drive marks a significant stride towards empowering the younger generation with technological tools essential for success in the contemporary world.

The primary objective of the DigiShakti Scheme is to bridge the digital divide exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, recognizing the critical role technology plays in education. The distribution event at ASB was meticulously organized under the guidance of Dean Academics. Dr. Maroof Ahmad Mir, ensuring a seamless process as each BBA and BCA graduate received a cutting-edge Samsung smartphone equipped with features to facilitate online learning, research, and communication. Beyond the immediate need for virtual education, the scheme aims to cultivate long-term digital literacy, providing equal opportunities for growth and development to students across Uttar Pradesh.

ASB’s contribution to this noble mission reflects its commitment to preparing students for the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital era. By actively participating in the distribution of smartphones, ASB aligns itself with the broader goals of the DigiShakti Scheme and, by extension, the Digital India vision. This initiative not only fosters digital literacy but also positions the youth to play an active role in the socio-economic development of the state and the nation.

In conclusion, the successful implementation of the DigiShakti Scheme at ASB is a testament to the institution’s dedication to its students’ holistic development. By embracing technology, ASB ensures that its graduates are well-equipped to thrive in an increasingly digital world, contributing to the collective progress of society.
