The most recent change to the educational system is the integration of digital technology, particularly in light of the COVID-19 epidemic. The Indian Ministry of Education (MOE) has taken the initiative to lead initiatives to increase students' digital technology skills and potential. The major goal of this study was to determine the characteristics of principals' digital leadership that predict the level of teachers' digital teaching, as well as the level of teachers' digital teaching practises. This study involved about 400 secondary school teachers in the Dimapur District of Nagaland. The results of this study demonstrate that teachers' digital teaching practises and principals' digital leadership are both at a high level. The two do have a moderately positive link, though. Only digital citizenship was proven to be a reliable indicator of teachers' digital instruction by multiple regression. The results demonstrate that, despite the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the capacity to create and coordinate digital leadership programmes is significant and can aid in enhancing students' academic achievement.
