Objectives Of CSC

Though this is an era of technology, still many Indian doubt or do not have any confidence doing transactions through online mode. People still prefer to stand in a long queue for getting their things done. Introducing CSC can really enhance the changes of 100% digitalization. The main objectives for the introduction of CSC are as follows.

  • To access information to remote areas: Indian Government has an objective to make India digital. The Urban areas somehow have picked up on that but for rural areas, it is being a little hard as the information does not get delivered to the remote areas which in turn does not raise people up or they remain unaware of all the policies introduced by the government. With the introduction of CSC, it can be possible to access information all over the nation which would help in the enhancement of the remote people as well.
  • G2C delivery of public services: by the introduction of CSC, the concept of middleman will vanish. Since CSC provides with the government to citizen (G2C), the people who used to get benefit in the middle, will not be benefitted anymore. The services that would be introduced by the Government would be introduced to the citizen directly with full transparency. This can be a good idea for a fair flow of policies.
  • Access to good education or upgradation of skills:  since remote areas do not have many schools, even if they have, schools lack proper infrastructure or provide with only basic education. With the introduction of CSC, students living in remote areas could get education through an online mode. They will be getting an opportunity to get an education from top professors and quality education which may not be possible without shifting their place. Introduction of CSC would promote distant education as well so as to make India a nation with the highest rate of literacy.
  • Non-discriminatory access: for rural citizens, non-discriminatory access to e-services has been introduced through CSC.
