Abstract

Everyone needs information and to be able to access information is a fundamental right. Most Indian villages are not well connected; so villagers are deprived of access to information. The main objective of this paper is to suggest a model infoNetwork centre as a mechanism for connecting the different information providing agencies (health, education, banking, government, employment agencies, agriculture sector, religion, non-governmental organisations, etc.) of society to villagers. In India both government and private organisations operate in many sectors like health, education, and employment. Observation and interview methods are used to understand villager's information needs and suggest a model of "infoNetwork centre" for villages.
