The "Digital Literacy and Online Safety Programme" aims to train 60,000 women in universities across major cities of India regarding safe use of internet, social media and email that will enable them to differentiate between the credible and questionable information available online. The programme, in its initial phase, is o to cover the states of Punjab, Manipur, Haryana, Meghalaya, Delhi-NCR, Sikkim, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. The program was launched on 18th June, 2018 at Punjab University, Chandigarh in the presence of Hon'ble Governor of Haryana.
