Bridging Digitally Divided India:
Indian Working Population @ Glance (Census 2001):
1. Indian Population over 102 Cr+, with over 72% is in Rural/Urban India.
2. Total Working Population is over 39%, thus 40 Cr+.
3. Rural/Urban Working Population is over 30%, thus 30 Cr+.

Telecom @ Glance (June 09):
1. Total Subscriber over 42 Cr+ with Rural/Urban base of 26%, thus over 11 Cr+.
1. Leverage Telecom Channel (Text + Voice) to power working Rural/Urban Bharat.
Mobile Adoption is the highest of all ICT platforms as compared to Internet adoption amongst people from all walks of life. Enabling telecom and its mobile subscribers with information access can bridge the digital divide in our society and it is the only choice and channel for empowering "Bharat" (Rural India and Urban Poor). The rural/urban/semi-urban mass also mandates vernacular content. The adoption of TV and Radio channels by rural/urban mass concludes that the high adoption happened largely due to local and regional content delivery. The need for vernacular, technology driven approach to improve lives of our fellow countrymen is evident and is adopted by VelaiSMS.
Our brand name approach is where we depending on the most popular spoken language in the adopted region in which the text/voice can be published, we adopt the local brand name in local vernacular language. So, in Tamil Nadu, we call it VelaiSMS (Velai is Jobs in Tamil) and similarly in Hindi speaking region we call it VelaiSMS. The parent company, which has built the product and owns the brand(s), is called Durai Charitable Trust.
By enabling and empowering the 40 Cr+ working population with 'JOB INFORMATION' alone we can transform livelihood of people, his family, community, society and nation.
