Gramin Samajik Vikas Sansthan has launched the Rural Social Infrastructure Development Project (RSIDP) in 2010 with the vision of providing e-Governance, e-Health, e-Education, e-Learning and e-Commerce services in an integrated manner at the doorstep of the citizen of India ( priority in rural areas) at affordable cost.This project is envisioned as “Gramin e-Mitra” (GEM) the front-end delivery points for Government, Private and Social sector services to citizens of India and it also creates self-employability.
The idea is to develop a platform that generates employment in the villages, towns or city and also can enable Government, private and social sector organizations to integrate their social and commercial goals for the benefit of rural and urban populations specially in the remotest corners of the country through a combination of IT as well as non-IT services.
GEM is a network of service points across the length and breadth of India.
GEM aims to provide access to information, backed with relevant infrastructure and end-to-end services that would allow rural population, the opportunities to enhance their quality of life.
By enabling access to a large number of services like e-Government, e-Learning, e-Education, e-Health etc. the GEMs offer a solid foundation for the economic prosperity of rural India.
A “GEM” is an internet enabled kiosk in a village/town/city with Computer (PC)+ Internet + Printer etc.
A GEM would be serving the people of the Republic of the India where it is located and also a catchment surrounding the GEM Village.
