The ambitious plan to set up 1,00,000 CSCs, connecting 6,00,000 villages across India, is slated to be operational by 2007 and aims to bridge the digital divide in the country.
Ministries like agriculture, education, and railways will be collaborating with the National Information Centre (NIC) at different levels of content development to enhance the performance and utility of the community services centres (CSCs) to be set up across the rural India. Since information technology can play a key role in educating farmers on trade, commerce and help them keep a track of movement and flow pattern of commodities, the government will extend both the Agriculture Resources Information System (AgRIS) and the Agmarknet projects to the 1,00,000 web-enabled CSCs.
