20 girls started the computer application course launched by the army
As many as 20 girls have started a year-long computer application course launched by the military for underprivileged students in Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir, an official said on Tuesday. The project, a package that encompasses various computer skills and basic computer knowledge including Windows operating system, MS Office and Internet, has been considered in line with the government’s Skill India and Digital India campaign, the official said.
He said students who take the one-year “Advanced Diploma in Computer Application” course, aimed at empowering women, will have both practical and theoretical understanding of computers and their technology. All successful students will receive the certification of “Advanced Diploma in Computer Application”, the official said.
Banihal Subdivision Magistrate, Zaheer Abass Bhat, who along with army officers interacted with the trainees, appreciated the efforts of the army and said that the computer education will pave the way to girls so that they become independent. “Completion of this course will open up opportunities for students in the field of higher education as well as jobs,” Bhat said.
