Union IT & communications minister Kapil Sibal inaugurated a rural service centre (RSC) in Badshahpur village here on Monday.

The RSC set up by a private telecom infrastructure firm, as per the PPP model, will facilitate education through internet, telecom services, healthcare and e-governance-related services in rural areas.

Age will not be a bar for people who wish to learn about agriculture and related topics. People will be taught in batches of eight in an education centre powered by a 1,800-watt solar panel.

“E-education, primary and vocational classrooms, life-saving drugs, vaccine storage, bio-metric ATM services, access to PDS rates, commodity prices, employment exchange, payment of taxes, birth, death, land record registration and provision of borewell water are available for villagers in this centre,” said a Viom networks official.

This model will give surplus power supply to the village.
