“We have decided to connect three districts – Faridabad, Rewari and Sonipat – through BharatNet by February so that digital programmes in education, healthcare and many others can be started soon,” Prasad told reporters here after the meeting. He said the Centre will also support Haryana government’s initiative of collecting biometrics of children below one year so that it is successful in digitising for programmes in education/ schools, healthcare, etc.
“I have directed Aadhaar/ UIDAI to think doing similar things for the whole country and make digital architecture for that. If you have Aadhaar for the children, it will be good during admission in schools, mid-day meals and vaccinations. We can learn from the Haryana government and should be done across India,” Prasad said.
