According to the latest round of research conducted by IMRB International with I-Cube 2013 (June 2013), the number of Computer Literates in rural India by June 2013 has risen nearly two-fold to 125 Million. As of June 2013, there are 59.6 Million users in Rural India who have accessed internet at least once in their lives. Although we are witnessing a steady growth, the penetration of 6.7% among the total rural population is still very low considering the huge rural population of 889 Million.
