India Inequality Report 2022

According to ‘India Inequality Report 2022: Digital Divide’ released by the NGO Oxfam India – growing inequalities based on caste, religion, gender, class, and geographic location are being worryingly replicated in the digital space in India as well.

Key Highlights of the report:

  • Women constitute only one-third of internet users in India
  • Maharashtra has the highest internet penetration, while Bihar has the lowest.

Digital divide is a term that refers to the gap between demographics and regions that have access to modern information and communications technology (ICT), and those that do not or have restricted access.
