Connecting Lingual Dots

Daleet-SinghToday, there are close to 190 million people who are accessing Internet across the country. We are the third-largest population behind US and China. There is a huge shift that took place in the profile of people who are accessing technology. Earlier, it was the urban population that was quite comfortable with the use of technology and now the shift is towards rural India, which is important for building an inclusive growth. And, the moment we talk about the inclusive growth, when we want to move to tier III or hinterland of the country, people who are not quite savvy with the technology or English language, they are comfortable doing vernacular language by accessing their daily needs and services through vernacular language. As a country, there has been huge investment that is committed by the state and the Central Governments in terms of 100 smart cities to be taken up. And, there is a broadband to connect about two-and-a-half-lakh villages across the country. As an organisation, MeritTrac has been focusing upon people’s part. 15 years back, when we started off with the examination services, the real shift which started happening towards online examination started somewhere around seven to eight years back. In our country, there have been successful incidents of public service commission, staff selection commission. Some of the public sector bodies that have adopted computer-based examinations have successfully executed these examinations. It also reduces risk because the transparency is there for the candidate, organisation, and every stakeholder involved.
