Nearly three-quarters of Bengaluru residents have never utilized digital technologies for educational purposes, as highlighted by a study conducted by Ithihaasa Research and Digital.

The report also notes a limited engagement with government platforms among the populace, contrasted with widespread use of private platforms for entertainment. Moreover, the utilization of digital technology for professional endeavours is constrained, with only half of the respondents holding full-time employment.

The findings of the survey, titled ‘Digital Society in India – A Study of an Urban City (Bengaluru) 2024,’ shed light on the significant gap between the accessibility of digital technologies and their actual application for educational purposes. According to the research, 79 percent of respondents have never utilized video content for educational purposes.

The survey aimed to explore experiences with digital technologies across socio-economic strata, examining activities conducted through digital platforms, the adoption of government versus private digital solutions, sources of information about digital technologies, and other related factors.
