Govt of India had launched the Common Service Center (CSC) Scheme for providing sustainable digital access to rural communities & for giving the necessary impetus for knowledge empowerment of the rural community. The CSC Scheme, a strategic cornerstone of the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP), is approved by the Government, as part of its commitment in the National Common Minimum Programme to introduce e-governance on a massive scale.
In light of the importance of the Scheme, Department of Information technology, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology organized a CSC Seminar on ‘Enabling Service Delivery: Bridging The Digital Gap’ at Vigyan Bhawan on July 16, 2011 to brainstorm with all the stakeholders in the Scheme – State Designated Agencies, Service Center Agencies, Village Level Entrepreneurs, Banks & the State/Central Governments and national level service providers.
The panel discussions primarily focused on the following topics…
Session I: Accelerate Delivery of Bharat Nirman Services, Financial Inclusion and Skill Development through the CSC Platform
Session II: Access to Health & Education through Remote Service Delivery & Management by Mainstream Government Departments & Institutions
Session III: Infrastructure Framework for CSC and Innovative Services
