“Providing the linguistic email address is one of its kind initiative in the world to achieve our Prime Ministers Vision of Digital India. It's now possible in every part of India to have an email address in their own language and communicate in preferred language”, said Anupam Shrivastav, Managing Director, BSNL.

Few months back, Government of India had launched .भारत  (Dot Bharat) domain in Indian languages to increase the reach of internet users by providing domain names in their own language so as to cover over 70% of the country’s population living in the rural and remote areas. BSNL is also known for its network in the rural and remote India especially in 2G and 3G data. Launching free linguistic Email address service for its millions of customers is another strong step on fulfilling the dream of digital India taken by the Govt. of India Enterprise, BSNL.

As per Indian Telecom Services Performance Indicators Report (April-June, 2016) released by TRAI, total internet subscribers in India is about 350.48 million which is just about 30 percent of the country’s population.

On the other side, Indian languages account for less than 0.1 per cent content on world wide web. Also, over 89 per cent population is non-English speaking and unable to read and communicate via email as the language utilised to communicate is English.
