  • (1888PressRelease) October 31, 2010 - The landscape of markets and neighbourhood dotted with PCOs will change as these PCOs get set for transformation into ePCOs where they will prove a bouquet of services ranging from payment of Telephone, Mobile, Electricity Bills to booking of Rail/Bus/Air tickets, payment of Life Insurance Premiums, Mobile/DTH recharges and a wide range of citizen centric services.

    Led by Suvidhaa in collaboration with BSNL, Intel and Keonics, the first project has been kicked off in Bangalore targeting 2500 PCOs in the state. While the services will be enabled by Suvidhaa, the ePCO infrastructure is available at a subsidized rate through the USO Fund by BSNL with an easy EMI option. The Govt. of Karnataka will also be providing a grant of Rs. 2000 to the first 2500 eligible PCOs.

    With the onset of the mobile & internet revolution, PCO owners experienced a major drop in revenue. The ePCO model equips existing PCOs with a computer and a broadband connection so that they can offer Internet based services in their locality.

    Paresh Rajde, Founder and MD of Suvidhaa says," The ePCO project in Karnataka will set a new benchmark in taking the services to grassroots by leveraging technology. Very soon, we will see this model being implemented all over the country in order to help millions. This project has the potential to change the landscape of how services are being availed and would be a boon to consumers."

    The project empowers self employment & aims at bridging the digital divide between rural and urban India. PCO owners & their families now have a genuine hope & confidence of sustaining their business. The ePCO project spearheaded by Suvidhaa in partnership with Intel, BSNL and KEONICS is expected to revolutionize the way PCO's will operate henceforth.
