Government CIC Project in North-East India http://www2.unescobkk.org/education/ict/v2_2/detail.asp?id=1379
In order to enable rapid socio-economic development in the North-East of India and bring the area closer to the national mainstream, in April 2000, the then Ministry of Information Technology launched a project to establish Community Information Centres (CICs) in all blocks in North-Eastern States. Under this project CICs are in the process of being setup in all 487 blocks of the North-Eastern States in local schools, colleges or government buildings. In order to ensure uninterrupted communication, the Centres are connected through a satellite based computer communication network. Each CIC is equipped with a VSAT, computer systems, printers and networking equipment. So far, experience has been very encouraging. Many of the CICs receive over a 100 visitors every week who use e-mail facilities, word processing applications, browse the Web, attend Training sessions and generally improve their familiarity with computers and awareness of IT.
