Community Service Centres (CSC) named as LokMitra Kendras
The Government of India has approved a Common Service Centres (CSCs) scheme for providing support for establishing 100,000+ Common Service Centres across 600,000+ villages in India. The objective is to develop a platform that can enable Government, private and social sector organizations to align their social and commercial goals, especially for the benefit of the rural population in the remotest corners of the country through a combination of IT-based as well as non-IT-based services. This scheme is being extended through two private companies i.e. Zoom Developers in Kangra & Terasoft & GNG in Mandi/ Shimla division. The agreement has been signed with these companies. Himachal has the distinction of one of the few states in the country where this scheme has started.
