E:Governace for Rural Bihar

A survey conducted by management and ICT consultancy firm SKOCH suggests that contrary to popular perception, information technology has a far greater impact in rural areas than urban centres. A recent survey of 37 e-governance projects, spread across 11 states accorded an overall rating of 8.67 to rural e-governance projects against 8.03 to urban projects. The survey was conducted over two years by management and ICT consultancy firm SKOCH and the projects were rated on various parameters. The results of the survey were released on Tuesday at the company’s ninth annual summit.

Around 30 MoUs have already been signed between the public and private sector and Panchayati Raj institutions to generate employment in rural areas, covering sectors like bio-diesel, power generation and fruit processing. The MoUs have so far been signed with farmers in Haryana, Karnataka and Uttaranchal. The rural business hub programme brokers partnership between the public and private sectors and Panchayati Raj institutions to initiate commercial activities in the rural areas.

I think this one area where the Bihar govt. needs to take a big initiative for bridging the IT gap and create some employment opportunities in Rural Bihar.
