Abstract: The role of the internet and its importance across the world, particularly in developing countries,
has grown sharply in the past two decades, with many communities, businesses, industries,
organizations, and even governments coming to rely on its potential for wide outreach and
capacity to advanced networking, alongside the enabling of other processes and technologies for
creating and managing services, analysing and collecting data, creating new methods of citizen
empowerment, and empowering digital democracy through multiple forms. The importance of
digital literacy, thus, has grown alongside this; yet education in information and communication
technologies (ICTs) has not yet effectively seeped into different other classes and stratas of
society -- it remains yet elusive to millions of people in lower classes, religions, castes, and
furthermore the spread of ICTs is limited and slower in many underprivileged regions of South
Asia and the world. This paper thus attempts to map the regional and socio-economic effects of
digital literacy in South Asia, mapping multiple forms of the definition of the term, and
considering cases and the evolution of ICT literacy in countries, taking an economic perspective
towards reviewing its benefits.
