Over the past 15 years, India has undergone a digital revolution, becoming a major market for tech giants like Meta. This transformation has benefited millions, giving them access to online financial services and an improved digital infrastructure. The new configurations of digital society translate to real-life changes for many companies, women, NGOs, and others.
