  • Because digital India means creating everything in an online way. And uneducated people don’t have a knowledge of digitalization
  • And also it is useless for poor people who can’t buy expensive mobile phones or any laptop to make their lives digital.
  • It is also reducing employment. To make them digital government should spread awareness of how to access everything to uneducated or poor people
  • They should give free education for digitalization to poor children, the government should give enough employment to the needy people so they can make their lives digital if our prime minister really wants to make India digital.
  • And also those who are having education about the digital world can help uneducated people
