56,000 remote villages to soon get mobile access

Out of 5,97,608 villages in India, 5,41,939 are believed to already have access to mobile services. The government has now announced plans to ensure connectivity for the remaining 9% of villages. The scheme will cover villages in the Himalayan regions including those in Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. Villages that share their borders with other nations will also be included in the scheme

A similar scheme will also be implemented to cover villages hit by Naxal violence. The move is expected to boost the digital India movement.

Last mile connectivity is now around the corner!
