The Chhattisgarh government has signed an agreement with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) to provide free Wi-Fi connectivity in 108 villages in the state's Bastar district.

The agreement was signed on Friday by Bastar Collector Chandan Kumar and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) Bastar General Manager Sharadchandra Tiwari under the Bastar Connect Programme.

According to an official statement, the availability of free WiFi services will improve the lives of citizens here by ensuring electronic governance, transparency, and doing business, in addition to their socioeconomic development. Under the government's Bastar Connect Programme, 73 Bastar villages and 35 Tokapal development blocks have been chosen, with the BSNL in charge of installing and maintaining public WiFi.

WiFi with a speed of 10 MBPS will be available at Haat Bazaar, Panchayat Bhawan, and other public places.

This is the first time in the state that such a large-scale development has occurred. It is also expected to benefit rural children in their studies, and other people will become aware of the government welfare schemes launched for their benefit.
