Telecentres to be set up to provide e-services in rural areas

| | No Comments


STAFF REPORT IBD: The establishment of Telecenters across the country is direly needed in order to serve the neglected and unprivileged population of rural areas in all provinces. These Telecenters would offer many services such as E-learning, E-commerce, E-agriculture and verification/registration of SIM cards, ID cards through NADRA. E-health services would also be provided to the people of rural areas subsequently.


Minister of State for IT Anusha Rehman said this while chairing a recently held meeting in order to review the proposals regarding establishment of Telecenters in rural areas.


She further stated that Telecenters would offer local community with state-of-art computer equipment and broadband facility but also be able to generate employment.
