Common Service Centre

1. Introduction:

       The Government of India launched a CSC (Common Service Centre) programme in 2006 to empower the rural community and catalyse social changes through ICT and to deliver the services at their doorstep. 1 lakh CSC would be setup in 6 lakh villages on honey-comb model i.e. each CSC would cover 6 villages. Service Centre Agency (SCA) was to be selected through open bidding process. SCA would set up CSC. CSC was managed by VLE (village level entrepreneur).  Financial viability gap funding was to be provided to SCA for sustainability. In Tripura, 870 GP/VC were available as per census 2001, hence 145 CSCs was set up. An amount of Rs 7000/- was provided to SCA for each CSC established.

       CSC 2.0 scheme was approved in August 2015 which aims to establish self-sustaining network of 2.5 lakhs CSC centres to cover all the Gram Panchayat (GP) of the country over a period of three years. The model of CSC 2.0 is envisaged as transaction based and service delivery based model, delivering a large bouquet of e-services through a single delivery technological platform, which would expand the network of self-sustaining CSC across the country.  In Tripura, total 1178 GPs/VCs are to be covered under the scheme. Under CSC 2.0 scheme no financial assistance would be provided to VLE.
