Intel has opened 10 Unnati Kendras in Telangana, an initiative for the digitization of rural India, reports Business Standard. The centers have been opened under the ‘Ek Kadam Unnati Ki Aur’ programme, which collaborated with 10 Common Service Centers (CSCs) in the districts of Warangal, Nalgonda and Karimnagar among others.

Each center will come equipped with Intel powered devices, local language content and various training modules. The centers will be manned by trained individuals who will offer classes on computer skills, internet and digital literacy every week other than language and vocational training. Government related content will also be disbursed at the centers.

Sahaj eVillage Limited, the common service center initiative from Srei, had said in 2013 that it was set to launch over 28,000 Common Service Centres (CSC) across 107 districts in the six states of Assam, Bihar, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal, and that more than 24,500 CSCs had already been established. As of now, the CSC website claims that over 100,000 centers have been established, with 150,000 more planned.

CSC’s other tie ups:

– In February last year, Flipkart signed an MoU with the CSC to work out a mechanism to help Common Service Centers (CSCs) pan India to leverage Flipkart’s e-commerce platform.

– In 2013, Airtel Money, Bharti Airtel’s mobile money offering, had tied up with CSC to provide banking facilities via common service centers, in three districts of Uttar Pradesh.

Intel Maker Lab: In August last year, Intel India launched an Intel India Maker Lab, a platform for entrepreneurs and innovators to ‘accelerate product innovation’ in Internet of Things (IoT), mobile devices and compute domains. The Lab would support 10 startups initially and provide them with development kits, reference boards, hardware and software tools for developing and testing.
