About our SID activities
We invite everyone to take the Digital Nagrik (Digital Citizen) pledge!
We are all active citizens of the digital world today. We use the internet for entertainment, sending money, keeping in touch with our loved ones or just to order our favourite food or groceries. But we also know that there are scammers and bullies out there too. More often than not, users are apprehensive about the digital space. In the virtual universe, the word “Suraksha” or “Safety” means a lot to the netizens. As we spend a lot of time on the internet today, it is important for us to learn how to behave and stay safe online. The “Digital Nagrik" Pledge is a reminder that the responsibility of making the digital world a space that is safe for all, lies with each and everyone of us. It is upto us to act us digital defenders of a safe and secure cyberspace. Lets pledge to become responsible digital citizens. Take the Digital Nagrik pledge today on www.iamdigitalnagrik.com.
*Nagrik means Citizen in Hindi
