Only 19% Indian are aware of the usage of Internet, says Study

A mere percentage of 19, in the age group of 15-65 only use the Internet in India, on Tuesday says a research report in Delhi.

Only 35% of Indians belong to the same age group are aware of the Internet usage, reads the Study named, “After Access: ICT access and use in India and the Global South.” The study report was published by Lirneasia, regulations, and policy thought to be in collaboration with India’s Cellular Operators Association.

The report further reads, “The lack of Internet awareness is a considerable problem in India, with just 35 percent of the 15-64 (years) population aware of what the Internet is. The level of use is thus even lower at 19 percent.”

Helani Galpaya, Lirneasia’s Chief Executive Officer on the findings of the study report says, “India has only connected around 20 percent of the adult people who you would expect to be online. So that’s pathetic… and the contradiction is, this (India) is one of the most affordable markets in the world.”

The report further projected that out of the total population in India, Internet users among the age group of 15-65 years are near 27%, who spend most of the time on social media only.
