Abstract

This particular paper discusses one of the biggest challenges for the country that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it. Our country’s prime minister announced a nationwide lockdown in March 2020, the schools and colleges were shut, and everything went online. Consequently, the digital divide in the country got out and reflected clearly. As the deepened digital divide impacted the school and higher education severely, the future of education in India looks very grim. This paper gives an overview of the present status of the digital divide between rural and urban India, its causes and the impact on Indian Education. Some steps taken by the Government have been highlighted and finally, some suggestions and recommendations have been presented to minimize such gaps and prevent their negative impact on our education system.
