In a first of its kind e-governance initiative, Rajasthan has created a pioneering IT infrastructure to create a state wide network to deliver citizen services and e-governance initiatives. Christened RajNET—this network will cover all 9,894 gram panchayats, 183 municipal areas along with all district and block headquarters. This is first of its kind network in the country. Under the Digital India programme, the government of India has set the target of creating this level of connectivity across the country by December 2016. Rajasthan has achieved this goal in March 2016 itself.
