Internet has been perhaps the most outstanding innovation in the field of communication in the history of mankind. There is a huge amount of information available on the Internet. Unfortunately, the rural population of India is not able to benefit from the available technology because of various limiting factors including illiteracy. GYANSETU system tries to bridges this gap by providing advanced yet simplified applications that can interact with the rural population, in a way comfortable to them so as to extract the required information from the internet. The possible services are e-governance, e-market, e-services (ticket booking), e-education etc. GYANSETU overcomes the limiting factors of rural masses including low/no literacy level and requires exposure only to local language, for getting connected to the internet.
