But alongside the optimism and hype surrounding the information age, it was noted that a vast majority of the people remained untouched by this revolution. A `digital divide' came to be recognised between the rich and the powerful, who are part of the information age and the poor and powerless, who are not.
This book examines at length the history, nature and aspects related to the `digital divide' in India. It has examined in detail the social, economic and political aspects affecting it.
Digital divide is an issue that is being closely observed by policy makers, regulators and scholars. This book will be valuable to them, and to students of management and information technology.
