“Dhiman initiated to start a CSC at MandapallyPanchayat in the state not for his personal benefit but to do his part for serving the nation. He began a door-to-door campaign to popularise PMGDISHA and Digital India. VLE explained them the necessity by connecting with their daily needs which was more convincing for the villagers. With the support of district coordinators and panchayat authorities, he started training the villagers .
“Dushmanta, after completing his higher studies, aspired for a government job. However he was destined to serve the villagers by running a CSC centre.
He sought the information by contacting the toll free number and was excited to know about the digital services delivered through CSC.
He initially started with PMGDISHA enrolling the whole neighbourhood for the project. “Though I had to cross many hurdles for delivering the quality service, it got better over the period. The low connectivity of internet was the primary glitch. However, we have upgraded the internet services at a 4G speed,” says the VLE.
Apart from the Kothabhuin gram panchayat officials, the denizens also extended their total support to make the project a big success.
Word of mouth is one of the powerful forms of advertisement for CSC and that is how Jayaram started a CSC at Kabera gram panchayat. He heard about the CSC services from his friend and immediately sought more information through the websites and toll free number.
Enthusiastic Jayaram immediately contacted the Dhenkanal District Manager and registered a CSC ID. He completed registering 215 candidates under PMGDISHA. Apart from the digital literacy programme he is now delivering most of the e-serivces through his centre.
