What is Ghar Tak Fibre scheme and its aims?
On 15th August 2020 the prime minister announced the Ghar Tak Fibre scheme marks a step towards, that all six lakh villages in India will be connected with optical fibre internet by 2024.
It aims to connect all 45,945 villages of Bihar with high-speed optical fibre internet by 31st March 2021.
Under the scheme, Bihar has to provide at least five fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) connections per village and at least one WiFi hotspot per village.
The Scheme will be implemented by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
The Scheme will lead digital services including e-Education, e-Agriculture, Tele-Medicine, Tele-law and other social security schemes in Bihar ensuring easy access to all state natives.
It is also likely to boost the local employment generation with the implementation of Bharat Net initiative which will be done by recruiting local workers.
The government’s Ghar Tak Fibre Scheme is the first step for the right direction that will ensure that rural India is technologically empowered and is shoulder to shoulder with the other developed nations.
