NINE PILLARS -  Universal Access to Phones

Targets & Expectations

More than 42,000 Villages (which do not have mobile connectivity) to be covered by 2018 at an estimated cost of Rs. 16,000 Crore


Progress so far

Not Known



Points for deliberations

  • Incentivization Programme for Service Providers to cover ‘financially un-lucrative’ geographies and areas
  • Creating a portfolio of G2C and B2C services which can generate a strong customer-pull to demand enhanced (and improved) coverage
  • Cheaper and affordable equipment for Service Providers and for end-users
  • Mobile Devices to ascertain identities of citizens while delivering various G2C services
