Sahaj e-Village Limited, an ISO 27001 certified company and an initiative of Srei Infrastructure Finance Limited, has delved into bridging the digital divide between urban and rural India. We have taken a phenomenal initiative to make information and technology reach all the nooks and corners of rural India. Recognizing the Honourable Prime Minister, Shri Manmohan Singh’s vision of a rural India that goes hand in hand with its urban counterpart in having unlimited access to all Government services, Sahaj has embarked upon a mammoth e-Governance Project. We have taken up the task of establishing Common Service Centres (CSCs) that were identified as one of the 4 pillars of the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) as envisaged by the Government of India.
The National e-Governance Plan of the Indian Government seeks to lay the foundation and provide the impetus for the long-term growth of e-Governance within the country. The plan seek to create to the right governance and institutional mechanisms, set up the core infrastructure and policies and also implement a number of Mission Mode Projects at the center, state and integrated service levels to create a citizen-centric and business-centric environment for governance.
