About the Scheme
are envisioned as the front-end
delivery points for Government, private and social sector services to
rural citizens of India.
CSC is a strategic cornerstone of the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP),
as part of its commitment in the National Common Minimum Programme to
introduce e-governance on a massive scale.The CSCs would provide high
quality and cost-effective video, voice and data content and services,
in the areas of e-governance, education, health, telemedicine,
entertainment as well as other private services. A highlight of the CSCs
is that it will offer web-enabled e-governance services in rural areas,
including application forms, certificates, and utility payments such as
electricity, telephone and water bills.
Scheme creates a conducive environment for the private sector and NGOs
to play an active role in implementation of the CSC Scheme, thereby
becoming a partner of the government in the development of rural India.
The PPP model of the CSC scheme envisages a 3-tier structure consisting
of the CSC operator (called Village Level Entrepreneur or VLE) the
Service Centre Agency (SCA), that will be responsible for a division of
500-1000 CSCs and a State Designated Agency (SDA) identified by the
State Government responsible for managing the implementation over the
CSCs in Manipur
The CSC Scheme in
Manipur was implemented in May 2008 by appointing single SCA viz, Zoom
Developers. As on August 2011, 360 CSCs have been set up out of 399 CSCs
in the State. The State Government had already set up 39 Community
Information Centres (CICs) which were integrated with the CSC Scheme.
The G2C services are yet to be delivered through the CSCs and the SCA
has activated few B2C services which are being delivered through the
CSCs like Financial Inclusion, Railway/Air Ticket Booking Agency, and
Insurance Selling etc.
