CSCs to provide digital financial literacy in rural India
With the objective to make rural India digitally literate, the Common Services Centers (CSCs), under the
Ministry of Electronics & IT, has been entrusted with the task of providing digital financial literacy
training and enabling access to digital financial instruments for one crore citizens in rural India.
The project has been sanctioned on Wednesday as a sub-component of Digital Saksharta Abhiyan (DISHA), which is being implemented by CSC SPV.
The project, titled ‘Digital Finance for Rural India: Creating Awareness and Access through CSCs (DFIAA)’ aims to enable the CSCs to become digital financial hubs, by hosting awareness sessions on government policies and digital finance options available for rural citizens as well as enabling various mechanisms of digital financial services such as IMPS, UPI, Bank PoS machines, etc.
