The beneficiary will have facility to print his/her Ayushman Scheme card through CSC.
As part of their social responsibility, HDFC has collaborated with CSC SPV to transform and develop villages and hamlets across the country as Digital Villages, which enables rural citizens to access G2C, education, health and financial services. These Digital villages are positioned to be the change agents, promoting rural entrepreneurship and livelihood through community participation.
These Digital Villages have been equipped with solar lighting facility in their community center, LED bulb assembly unit, sanitary napkin unit and WiFi Choupal; an initiative towards developing a rural WiFi infrastructure. These villages would also have the regular online services available through the Common Services Center like G2C and B2C, banking and insurance, health, education and other utility services of the state government.
