Technology Analysis of Social Justice in India
Science and Technology have always been an important part of Indian culture since the 1900s. Since then the Government has established modern technology and continues to do so. With support from the Government and investments, development in agriculture, healthcare, space research, and nuclear power through research has improved. Science and Technology is a key element of economic growth in India, brining economic growth with social justice. In India, technology is used to help poor reap benefits by redistributing income. Jan Dhan banking accounts are given to everyone in the country, which allows benefits to be transferred directly into the beneficiary account. Although technology has improved in India, there is a gender gap in the access of technology. There is a 27% gap between men and women, meaning 27% less women have access to internet. Studies has also shown that only 28% of women in India own a mobile device.
