Assocham: Stark ‘Digital Divide’ among states

New Delhi: On the basis of telephone connections for every 100 individuals, business chamber Assocham said that there exists a wide ‘Digital Divide’ between states.

Delhi has the highest score of 238 percent while Bihar and Assam lag behind at around 55 percent.

India may have achieved a significant success in reaching the number of telephone subscribers to over one billion, but the tele-density data points to a stark Digital Divide with large populations in Bihar, Assam, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh still being deprived to communicate with the rest of the country, the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Assocham) said in a statement.(IANS)
