“The association with NECTI will help in utilising technologies for delivery of various services to citizens, especially those living in rural India,” adds Dr. Dinesh Kumar Tyagi, CEO of CSC SPV. “Education, financial inclusion and telemedicine are the areas where innovative technologies can be utilised to improve the quality of life for people living in rural India.”

NECTI was recently awarded a contract as the master system integrator for installing CCTV surveillance and traffic management systems in Gurugram City, India.
