Noida, February 17, 2024 – In a landmark event, the Asian School of Business (ASB) in Noida successfully implemented the “DigiShakti Scheme,” a pioneering initiative by the Uttar Pradesh Government under the dynamic leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The initiative, aimed at advancing the vision of Digital India, focused on distributing state-of-the-art smartphones to the youth, particularly the technical graduates of the 2023 batch.

ASB played a pivotal role in this distribution drive, marking a significant stride towards empowering the younger generation with essential technological tools for success in the contemporary world.

Each BBA and BCA graduate pass out in 2023received cutting-edge Samsung smartphones equipped with features tailored to facilitate online learning, research, and communication. This strategic move not only addresses the immediate need for virtual education but also aligns with the broader goal of cultivating long-term digital literacy. It ensures equal opportunities for growth and development to students across Uttar Pradesh.

ASB’s active participation in this noble mission reflects the institution’s dedication to preparing students for the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital era. By providing these technological tools, ASB contributes to the broader goals of the DigiShakti Scheme and, by extension, the Digital India vision.
