“Countries that have focused on their infrastructure have seen fast development. Only Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government stressed on the importance of a robust infrastructure in India before the current government,” he added.

The highway projects inaugurated cover a road length of about 350 kilometres and will be completed at a cost of Rs 14,258 crore.

‘Ghar Tak Fibre’ scheme will connect all 45,945 villages of Bihar through optical fibre internet service, according to a PMO release issued on Saturday.

“The fibre internet services programme is a “prestigious project” which will enable a “digital revolution” to reach the state’s remotest corner,” the release said.

PM Ghar Tak Fibre Scheme 2020

PM Narendra Modi announced in his 74th Independence Day speech that only 5 dozen village panchayats were connected with optical fibre before 2014. In the past 5 years, around 1.5 lakh village panchayats have been connected with optical fibre network. In the upcoming 1000 days, central govt. will work to connect every village of the nation with optical fibre as per the PM Modi’s vision of Digital India. Now the govt. has launched PM Ghar Tak Fibre Scheme 2020 to provide high speed internet connectivity to people.

CSC to Provide Fiber To The Home (FTTH) Broadband Internet Connectivity

This FTTH connectivity will be provided to 45,945 villages of nearly 8,900 Gram panchayats where Wi-Fi and FTTH through BharatNet are functional. It is expected that govt. will lay down optical fibre network in all villages till end of next year i.e FY 2021.
