GIIT Chinhat, Uttar Pradesh

Promila’s story and CSC journey stands out as she exactly knew what she wanted to do – “empower women using ICT”. A Doctorate of Doctorate of Philosophy in Computer Science she had a deep yearning to take the digital revolution – that has transformed lives of people in urban areas like never before – to rural areas.

A fairly old hand, she started her digital journey in 2004. While she initially started with a small computer training institute at a small village called Nizam Pur located in Chinhat Block, Lucknow District in Uttar Pradesh, she eventually took the role of an entrepreneur on herself. Promila said “Rural people by and large have been untouched by the digital revolution. CSC was a wonderful opportunity to let people know that ICT has arrived even in rural areas. The rural population of not only my village but the neighbouring villages also started depending on my CSC for various services".

She started imparting digital literacy through her CSC. Promila till now has trained over 2000 people under various computer literacy initiatives. Promila thanks her family for all the support provided. “Devoting tireless hours at work till late nights was not possible because of their support.”

CSC has helped in ensuring that the digital services reach people living in the far flung areas, she says. Convenience in accessing government as well as private services is what CSCs have introduced to people of this small area – Chinhat in UP. She says: “CSC was just the opportunity that i had been waiting for.”
