As on 03.02.2019, by laying 3,11,191 km underground OFC, 1,23,766 GPs have been connected and of these Gram Panchayats (GPs), a total of 1,16,961 GPs have been made Service Ready. The State-wise details of the number of Gram Panchayats connected with broadband are given in Annexure-I.
NATIONAL+OPTICAL+FIBRE+NETWORK
As part of Bharat Net project, the last mile connectivity, through Wi-Fi or any other suitable broadband technology to access broadband /internet services, is being provided at all the GPs in the country. The Wi-Fi hotspots have been installed at 41,139 GPs and of these GPs, services are being provided at 10,883 GPs. The State-wise details of the number of Gram Panchayats connected with Wi-Fi hotspots are given in Annexure-II. 

The Bharat Net project is targeted to be completed by March, 2019. 

(c) The District-wise details of GPs of Gujarat, Jharkhand, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh, where broadband connectivity is yet to be provided under Bharat Net project, are given in Annexure-III. 

(d) The funds are allocated/disbursed for the project as a whole and not State-wise, by USOF. The year-wise details of funds allocated/disbursed during the last three years under Bharat Net project are given in Annexure-IV. The details of the State-wise expenditure on the project, as per the information received from BBNL, are given in Annexure-V. Further, as approved by the Cabinet on 19.07.2017, the estimated cost of the project is Rs. 42,068 crore. 

(e) The Bharat Net project is of mega nature as it involves provision of broadband connectivity to all the 2.5 lakh GPs, spread across vast and expansive area of the country. 

For laying OFC, the Right of Way (RoW) permissions is required from various agencies/ organizations of the State /Central Government. 

However, a revised strategy has been approved by the Cabinet on 19.07.2017 for expediting the implementation of BharatNet project.
