Hyderabad: Under Government’s ‘Ek Kadam Unnati ki Aur’ programme, tech firm Intel has inaugurated ‘Unnati Kendras’ across 10 towns in Telangana. Intel India collaborated with Common Service Centers to initiate the knowledge centers in the districts of Warangal, Karimnagar, Nalgonda, Medak, Mahabubnagar, Adilabad and Rangareddy. The main motto of these centers is to increase PC usage in rural areas of the state.
Each Unnati Kendra will be equipped with Intel-powered devices, local language content, and relevant training modules for non-urban citizens, creating opportunities for skill development and digital empowerment, said a company statement. Debjani Ghosh, vice president for sales and marketing group, and managing director for South Asia at Intel said “We set up the first Unnati Kendra at Nadimpalli village, south of Hyderabad, with a population of approximately 1,000 people. This village is on its way to becoming a digital village, and hope to replicate the same success story across the country.” Intel India is collaborating with Acer, Asus, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo, and with leading content providers including Dailyhunt, Dgflick and Skilltrain for this programme.
