Common Services Centres Scheme (CSC) is one of the parts of the National e-Governance Plan. CSCs will offer cost-effective video and high-quality voice and data content and facilities, in the areas of e-governance, health, education, telemedicine, entertainment as well as other private services. The aim of the CSC is that it will offer web-enabled e-governance services in rural areas, with certificates, application forms and utility payments such as telephone, electricity and water bills. Therefore the main objective CSC is to develop a platform that can permit Government, private and social sector organizations to support their social and commercial goals for the benefit of the rural population in the distant corners of the country through a combination of IT-based as well as non-IT-based services.
