The covid-19 pandemic, followed by an yearlong lockdown made rural children adapt to online solutions and move to e-learning but only 10% regional and local schools were able to go online hampering the education in rural India. This crisis created a gap of knowledge and education between the students leading as a result of poor infrastructure and development. Under the influence of the digital Bharat campaign, these educational platforms are making way for the future of India led by rural students.
