Former Prime Minister Bharat Ratna, Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi, realized the power and importance of information technology and introduced computers in India in the 1990s, enriching the youth capabilities of the nation. Concerning the capability building of youth, the Government of Rajasthan has developed a leapfrog strategy in various fields, including digital technology, vocational education, entrepreneurship, and startup-up ecosystem in the state. The government of Rajasthan is very much determined to enhance the employment opportunities for all the undergraduates/ graduates/ postgraduates of the state, and has developed the Rajiv Gandhi Center of Advanced Technology (R-CAT) in the state budget for the financial year 2021-2022.
