6 years since Digital India initiative, there are many benefits reaped. From myGov, world's largest digital democracy platform, to Creation of Aadhaar database, world's largest biometric-based digital identity; India has started its digital revolution. With nearly 700 million internet users across the country, digital India has become an integral part of everyone’s lives. But there remains a digital gender divide that can cost India its development. A nation moves forward when its women move ahead. Women are the engine of sustainable economies, benefiting both societies and humankind. My study aims at showing the importance of rural Indian women for the Indian economy. The number of women who have access to internet is much lower than men in the country, and the bias becomes wider in rural India. Without digital literacy, this vulnerable group may find themselves too far behind to ever catch up with "Digital India.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi's goal for Digital India is ground-breaking. It has the potential to create an evolution in India, with rural India poised to receive largest benefits. But both, women and men should be the receiver of this campaign for it to be a true success. At the end of my study, one will be able to deduce the importance of rural women in a workforce.
