I would agree with whats stated by Rajesh in his mail below -CIC -s have been an wonderful thing to happen.
My first hand experience is people are reaping its benifits in small towns.
Having my friend with a local CIC, whenever I go to my hometown,
I really feel surprised to see the kind of queries that people come up with to the CIC centre:-
questions ranging from Agri info to Education to Medical info.
Its one thing to be cynical about everything and its another to face the heat and work amidst all the obstacles and still retain hope.
Dont know the internal state of affairs of the CIC-s but definitely this is something positive to happen.
Rajesh, indeed an appreciable job by all the cic operators

They had been of help to those who knew how to use this facilities but we have ample resons to believe that its benefits did not filter down to those for whom it was targeted. It is another of those nice schemes of Govt of India which failed to reach its targets.
