Over the last few years; technology has been a great enabler for rural development. Rural economies have been a driving force in the country’s progress, contributing more than 46 percent to the national income.

The government of India’s Digital India programme was instituted to transform India into a connected knowledge economy and to empower the people by building digital access, thereby paving the way for efficient delivery and governance, and serving the citizens better.

While the public sector is implementing policies and programmes to achieve this, private companies like Amazon Web Services (AWS) have emerged as active participants in the digital empowerment of citizens in India’s small towns and villages, through its latest technologies.

Through the various stakeholders, AWS has developed various resources and technologies for high-performance computing, big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning (ML), and the Internet of Things (IoT) to empower the growth for small cities & rural India, AWS has been able to improve the quality of life and livelihoods of people from these regions.

Four key areas are included in the compilation – financial and social inclusion, digital agriculture, education, and skill development, and healthcare. In this you will find, how AWS’ customers and partners are enabling farmers to increase crop yield across several states in India; providing essential remote neonatal care and COVID-19 monitoring; verifying the legitimacy of financial schemes aimed at lower-income groups, and providing last-mile impact in education in the remotest corners of the country, among others.

We are seeing this contribution through the Serving a Digital-first India eBook– a snapshot of how various organizations in India are enabling innovation and digital empowerment across India through AWS technologies.
