Common Services Centers (CSCs) are part of the Digital India programme. They are the access points for delivery of various electronic services to villages in India, thereby contributing to a digitally and financially inclusive society.
All CSCs are being enabled to undertake banking, insurance, and pension schemes.
Minister said government’s focus is on enabling e-Swaraj (self governance) at the Panchayat level, resulting in enlightened and empowered society which can actively participate in nation building.
