This text presents 16 case studies of successful use of information and communication technologies for the rural development in India. The case studies encompass: decision support for development programmes; improved delivery of services to citizens and empowering citizens through access to knowledge and information. These case studies were drawn from a variety of sectors in India and represent many applications which have been implemented at a very large number of rural sites. The case studies have been contributed by project leaders who were responsible for implementing the applications. They draw lessons on many aspects of deploying information and communication technologies in developing countries. Areas worthy of IT investments are identified and how IT projects can be managed successfully is discussed. This work provides useful insights for software companies focusing on e-commerce, government officials responsible for developing IT strategy, project leaders implementing IT applications and international agencies which fund ICT related projects.show more
