Implementation of CSC Digital Villages – Establishment of 100 Unique Model CSC (ICTs) Centres in 100 GPs under the PMEGP

Model CSC Centres are assisted access points for delivering Government of India e-Services in rural and remote locations, where availability of computers and Internet is negligible or mostly absent. These are one-stop centres that provide multiple services at a single geographical location.

With a view to achieve the objectives of the Government of India, we propose 100 Digital Villages in a District towards establishing 100 Unique Model ICT centres.

Regarding this, we have approached the District Collector and Chairm an, DeGS, Lead District Manager, and GM DIC (PMEGP) Jayashankar Bhupalpally with a request to include the Project Proposal in DCC/District Level Implementation Committee meeting and garner financial support from Bankers by covering this project under PMEGP

(Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme) to provide assistance to our VLEs who are fulfilling the eligibility requirements.

The proposed Project was initially implemented in Aspirational District Jayashankar Bhupalpally in Telangana in two phases. Under Phase 1, District CSC selected the first 50 Entrepreneurs and processed the Application through PMEGP portal. After online application, the proposals are routed through District Industries Center (DIC)/ KVIC/KVIB – Nodal Agency of PMEGP to the Financing Bank.
