50,000 IT kiosks for rural India from Microsoft !!

Microsoft India announced its new rural initiative to set up 50,000 IT kiosks for information and services related to health, education, communication and agriculture in villages.
The initiative, named ‘Saksham’ (self-reliant), would provide local entrepreneurs a chance to set up and manage kiosks on a self-sustaining basis for providing content and services to the rural populace.
Microsoft has tied up with three non-government agencies — Drishti, Jaikisan and n-Logue – to roll out these kiosks and is also in talks with lending institutions such as State Bank of India to provide funding to local entrepreneurs, Microsoft India Managing Director Neelam Dhawan said.
