Cisco Teams with India's CSC e-Governance Services

Cisco signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with CSC e-Governance Services India, a private company established to catalyze and accelerate the delivery of various eGovernance services. Cisco will help make education and health care solutions available and to promote social inclusion.

The Common Service Centres program is a strategic cornerstone of the government of India's National e-Governance Plan (NeGP), which calls for 250,000 CSCs to be set-up in 600,000 villages. The goal is to offer Web-enabled e-governance services in rural areas as well as to provide high-quality and cost-effective video, voice and data content and services in areas such as education, health and entertainment.
