This book is an effort to compile the successful deployment of ICT and digital media enabled projects, its impact and learning that in many ways have impacted the society at large based upon the cases from India and South Asia. This book also advocates the necessity of “digital content and services” over just “technology deployment” in the name of infrastructure but not going beyond that.
