Community Information Centre (CIC)
The Community Information Centre (well known as CIC)
Project has been implemented on pilot basis in 30 blocks of the North Eastern
states and Sikkim
in India. State
wise list of blocks for Pilot implementation is given below and the main project
was inaugurated on 17th August 2002 with the dedication of 457 CICs to the
people of the
North-East India by Hon'ble Minister for Communications and Information
Technology and Parliamentary Affairs, Shri Pramod Mahajan in Guwahati.
In view of the successful implementation of the CIC Project
in the North Eastern States it was decided to extend the same to other parts of
the country. The first state to be taken up was the state of Jammu
and Kashmir. This
was due to the fact that the barriers for access to ICT, such as difficult
geographical terrain and lack of infrastructure which were found in the North
Eastern states were also an issue for Jammu and Kashmir. It was felt that the
basic needs of citizens such as information, education, entertainment and health
services can be addressed through the establishment of Community Information
Centres in the state. These centres would serve as a platform for e-governance,
e-learning and other IT enabled services in the state.
