This announcement was released by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg where he emphasized the need of internet in the lives of people. In his personal update, he shared a photo of himself in village chandauli in october 2014 and describe the whole website motive.
Mark Said :

We just launched Internet.org in India -- giving people in six Indian states access to free basic internet services for health, education, jobs and communication.
Over the last year we've rolled out Internet.org free basic services to countries with more than 150 million people total across Africa and Latin America. More than 6 million people are already connected to the internet who previously weren’t, and we’ve started hearing incredible stories about how the internet is changing lives and communities.
But to continue connecting the world, we have to connect India. More than a billion people in India don’t have access to the internet. That means they can’t enjoy the same opportunities many of us take for granted, and the entire world is robbed of their ideas and creativity.
We still have a long way to go to connect India. But I'm optimistic that by getting free basic services into people's hands, more change can follow pretty rapidly.
One day, we will connect everyone, and the power of the internet will serve every community across India and the world. That day is coming.
