"It was imperative to constantly and consistently improve the ongoing efforts to go digital," he said.

Referring to the e-book, he said it captures the achievements and initiatives of the ministry in the last one year and presents the content in a multi-media and reader-friendly format with pictures and embedded videos.

The new mobile application of DD News will make live TV, news feed and top videos available on smartphones.

Officials said the mobile application has a user-friendly interface and is available even in poor network conditions. Both Android and i-Phone versions of the application are available.

They said e-version of the India/Bharat-2015 was aimed at providing better reading experience to the public.
