In an effort to enhance skills of the youngsters, Ministry of Electronics and Information technology (MeitY) on Wednesday has launched ‘Digital India Internship Scheme’ portal in which a token of Rs.10,000 will also be offered to interns as remuneration per month.

The MeitY’s internship scheme will offer 25 slots in each session – summer and winter, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Electronics and IT and Law & Justice, told reporters here adding that the portal will facilitate students to apply online for internship and its aim is to provide an opportunity to secure first hand and practical work experience under the guidance of a mentor.

“The internship scheme will enable the young students to learn closely about working of transformative initiative of Digital India. It will also give exposure to the students about technology policy and decision making of government of India,” Prasad said.

The two-month internship (extendable to three months) will start from next month and a certificate will be given to the students on completion of the internship and submission of report.

Students with minimum 60 per cent marks in the last degree or certificate examination and students who are pursuing B.E./ B.tech (second/ third year) or integrated degree course/ dual degree (B.E/ B. Tech, M.E./ M. Tech) can apply for the programme.
