Today Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has become an essential part of the common man's life. It is a fact that communication innovations at the global level are occurring at a very fast rate, but its outreach to population in general and rural population in particular is very poor, especially in underdeveloped and developing nations. Of late, the developing nations, like India, have started giving a thrust to developing technology realizing its immense role in changing the economic and social face of its population. Around 65% of the nation's population lives in rural areas. Rural people should have the same quality of life as is enjoyed by people living in sub-urban and urban areas. Further, there are cascading effects of poverty, unemployment, poor and inadequate infrastructure in rural areas on urban centers, resulting in the rise in slums and consequential social and economic tensions manifested in economic deprivation and urban poverty (http://abhinavnirman.in/programmes/rural-development/).
