He said if at least 500 villages could be made ‘less cash’ per year as part of realising the dream of ‘digital villages’, it will create a “chain reaction” spreading to thousands of villages. The prime minister also emphasised the need for focussing on growth of livestock sector and said skill training should be provided to womenfolk, who play a crucial role in this area.

Underlining the importance of empowering the farmers in the villages, Modi said it was essential for the balanced development of the country.

Talking about the concept of digital villages, he said the government is connecting all Panchayats through optical fibre. “Putting infrastructure alone is not sufficient. There is a need to make the villagers capable to use the technology,” he said emphasising the role NGOs in empowering villagers.
