E-stores in rural areas will be accessible for the villagers

The government would operate rural e-stores during lockdown to make it easy to supply essential goods in the villages. Rural e-store providing an app that will help villagers get their requirements to their homes. In this work, the assistance will be taken from the Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs) affiliated with the Local Service Center (CSC). CSC functions under the State Government of India's Ministry of Electronics and IT.

The CSC Scheme CEO DC Tyagi said in the next two-three days an app called the CSC Grameen E-Store will also be launched to facilitate the supply of essential commodities in villages during the lockdown. This app is available in every smartphone on Google Playstore. Tyagi said that they would be able to order mainly grocery stores from rural e-stores. VLE would also be responsible for ordering the goods and delivering them to their homes, in accordance with the villagers 'request. The prices of the items are displayed in the app as well.

Initially, 10,000 VLEs are expected to connect with e-stores in rural communities. If successful, and in the event of a long lockdown, the number of VLEs may increase. If this experiment works then Amazon and Flipkart will start the village facility. Rural e-stores have launched as a pilot project in the villages of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, but the service is provided over the phone here. Seeing the enthusiasm among villagers for this type of service, the app is being launched.

Tyagi said the life of the rural areas under lockdown would have been made easier by taking Aadhaar-linked CSC into compulsory service. There are currently around 2.6 lakh Aadhaar-linked CSCs, where the villager can withdraw the money from depositing his insurance installment that falls into his account. At the present 18,000 banking correspondents are employed in rural areas to send the money sent to their account by the government. Such centers will also be made functional and every panchayat in the country will be provided with Aadhar Linked CSC. Having such centers approved, it will be easier for the villagers to get help.
