Access.in, says that many books are still not accessible in many parts of India due to outdated content and lack of digital literacy skills among youth.
The organization, which has also written a guide for digital literacy for young people, says a lot of books are published for the young and under-privileged, and therefore, they are not accessible to them.
“Books published in India are the most important for the youth in terms of literacy.
Most of the books published in digital format are written by a privileged few.
It is their responsibility to provide the digital literacy curriculum to the youth,” Access.in president and CEO Rajeev Rana told Al Jazeera.
Rana said that the government has a “very ambitious” goal to develop literacy among the youth by 2020, which means a massive number of books must be written to reach the target.
The digital literacy initiative aims to reach around 80 million people in the country by 2020.
