Freelancing is a popular career alternative to employment. Some are earning more than lakhs of rupees per month by working online from anywhere in the country. The government is providing 25,000 laptops to increase the participation of women in freelancing, which has become an alternative profession.
Experts have emphasized monitoring to ensure proper use of these laptops bought at a cost of 162 crores. They said that broadband internet connection should be provided in the village to get the benefits.
Laptops are being distributed in the middle of the training. Samsul Arefin, secretary of information and communication technology department, said that this assistance is being given to make the trained women self-reliant.
Experts said that if the pace of work of freelancers increases, unemployment will also decrease along with foreign exchange income. However, they think it is important to monitor to ensure the correct use of the laptop.
Experts suggest increasing broadband connectivity in rural areas to speed up online work.
