Introducing Technology in Digital Villages
Agnii invites innovative ideas which can support Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs) and help generate rural livelihood opportunities.
AGNIi – Accelerating Growth of New India’s Innovations – is a programme of the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India, and a Mission under the Prime Minister’s Science, Technology, and Innovation Advisory Council (PM-STIAC). AGNIi is executed at Invest India, India’s National Investment Promotion Agency, which houses our professional team.
AGNIi helps commercialise Indian technological innovation. It helps those who have technology, deliver it where it is needed.
The technology showcase is with 800 VLEs preferably working in Digital Village Scheme.
For this pilot, approximately 30-40 workshops will be organized covering nearly 800 digital villages within 12 months. Both AGNIi and CSC collectively intend to organize one geographically focused showcase in every week.
CSC VLEs will then invite 10-15 people from their community for attending this live showcasing of innovations and technologies.
