Following the digital India dream of Government of India, BSNL has offered free E-Mail Address service in 8 Indian Languages to its broadband users by launching a DataMail service. Now BSNL broadband users will be able to open an email ID in DataMail service in their own language.
Providing the linguistic email address is one of its kind initiative in the world to achieve our Prime Ministers Vision of Digital India. It’s now possible in every part of India to have an email address in their own language and communicate in preferred language.
Few months back, Government of India had launched Dot Bharat domain in Indian languages to increase the reach of internet users by providing domain names in their own language so as to cover over 70% of the country’s population living in the rural and remote areas. BSNL is also known for its network in the rural and remote India especially in 2G and 3G data. Launching free linguistic Email address service for its millions of customers is another strong step on fulfilling the dream of digital India taken by the Govt. of India Enterprise, BSNL.
Our fully ‘Made in India’ software product enabling DataMail service is a revolution in the world as many countries are waiting to inject the linguistic email address to empower the non-English speakers of the world. We are happy to contribute to the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Digital India dream by partnering with BSNL, country’s strongest network telecom company having rural and remote connect.
As per Indian Telecom Services Performance Indicators Report (April-June, 2016) released by TRAI, total internet subscribers in India is about 350.48 million which is just about 30 percent of the country’s population. So, about 70 percent of population is not having access to the internet and most of these belong to rural India.
On the other side, Indian languages account for less than 0.1 per cent content on world wide web. Also, over 89 per cent population is non-English speaking and unable to read and communicate via email as the language utilized to communicate is English.
The most spoken languages in India in 2016, according to our analysis based on secondary data, are approximately Hindi [544.39 million], Bengali [107.60 million], Telugu [95.40 million], Marathi [92.74 million], Tamil [78.41 million], Urdu [66.47 million], Gujarati [59.44 million], Kannada [48.96 million], Punjabi [37.55 million], Assamese [16.98 million].
