Soon, the first Common Service Centre (CSC) will come in Jharkhand, India. The CSC is the single-gateway for Government-to-Citizen (G2C) services, under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP).
The main aim of the CSC is to bridge the gap between government and citizen. The pilot project of the first CSC will launch on January 19, 2007, which has been set-up in Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu. The CSC in Jharkhand would be the first one to be implemented under the NeGP. The Government is planning to set up 1500 more centres like this. The centre will initially offer 22 suite of government services. VSAT facility and touch screen kiosks would connect the centre. Initially the centre will concentrate on tele-education and tele-health facilities.
