IT IS NICE PLAN BUT FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT 150 RS. IS ALSO TO MUCH . AS 70 % FARMER ARE IN VILLAGES AS THEY DONT HAVE KNOWLEDGE TO OPERATE THE INTERNET ALSO. SO THE RURAL PLAN SHOULD BE OF 70 RS. ONLY. I.E. THEY CAN GAIN THE NET KNOWLEDGE. SURVEY THE USE OF NET IN RURAL AREA.

This is a good step to empower rural areas where information takes time to update, Unlike Punjab which developed itself due to the same, other parts of India could not. Now we might see growth in Maharashtra & Goa in terms of advancements…This will prove to be beneficial in the field of Agriculture & its subsidiaries. BSNL has to just ensure usage of same in proper way, hope they take some steps with that too…
