Warana Wired Village

In the Warana Wired Village project covering 70 villages in Maharashtra the existing cooperative structure has been used with state of the art infrastructure to allow internet access to existing cooperative societies.  The aim is to provide information to villagers by establishing networked booths in the villages. The villages in this sugarcane-growing region have computers that are linked to a central network that provides farmers access to essential pieces of information such as the ideal time for planting and harvesting sugarcane, the current market rates of their produce, and payments made by the factories. The Central and State governments together funded 90 per cent of the project.
