IKSL Launches 'Gram Sanjeevani'
Apr 14, 2015

Leveraging long years of association and experience with rural India and the large volume of data bases, IKSL has launched a Rural Portal Gram Sanjeevani. This rural Portal is inspired by a similar initiative of IFFCO launched in 2001, based on touch screen kiosks, but refurbished to suit the latest context and new developments in ICT. 

  • The ‘Gram Sanjeevani’ leverages the voice content delivered to farmers and also includes many new features like, supplementing the information with images, providing library services on large number of topics and even promoting rural handicraft.

  • IKSL has been studying the requirements of farmers and their concerns which in turn helped it develop vast databases of advisories in text and audio format. 

  • ‘Gram Sanjeevani’ is an attempt to take this useful information to a much larger audience.

  • The users can set their Homepage to reflect their interests–State to which they belong, subject, locations for mandies & weather, etc. 

  • Mobile Apps of relevance to farmers are also being added. 

  • Anyone can set their own Rural Homepage in more than 10 Indian languages, rich rural content and data.

  • Services offered by ‘Gram Sanjeevani’ are: 
    Free Voice Message for rural Subscribers.
    Dedicated Helpline for query resolution by Experts.
    Call back facility to listen to voice messages once again.
    Mobile quizzes. 
    Phone in programmes for expert advice through mobile phones.
    Focused services for groups with common interest.
