ICT AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA: ASSESSING THE IMPACTS OF TELECENTRES ON RURAL LIVELIHOOD

Nagendra Nath Gogoi, Niminita Saikia.

Abstract
ICT has had a tremendous effect on enhancing the quality of life in recent years, and is being
seen as the driver of development. Telecentres are now considered as indispensable facilitators for
communication and information technology in rural areas, offering e-government services and other facilities,
delivering information, electronic transfers and other assistance programs. They have the capabilities to provide
rural communities with advances in healthcare education, agriculture, and other industry, which in turn can help
to raise the living standard of people living in rural areas. The goal of this paper is to examine the relationship
between rural development and ICTs by assessing the role of community telecenters in providing e-government
services as well as the enhancing quality of living in rural areas. This paper also discusses the importance of
community telecenters in expanding access to financial assets and livelihood resources that, under certain
parameters, could help in improving their livelihoods

Key words: ICT, Development, India, Rural Livelihood, Telecentres.
