Giving details of the project Chief Minister said the government will put huge LED screen at the public place in villages and will give useful information such as precautionary measures to be taken at the time of natural calamity, pro-people schemes, health services, up-to-date details of commodity rates and others through the screen.

“With the e-broadcast project the state government has taken a revolutionary move to serve the village people with the power of information in 21st century”, Chief Minister said.

Talking about various e-governance initiatives, Chief Minister said that Gujarat government has adopted a well-thought-of roadmap for development. At first it provided 24-hour three phase power to all 18000 villages of the state through Jyotigram scheme. Then it used modern technology to bring about a qualitative change in education in villages. “In villages now they have computers in primary schools and students are even given lectures using satellite technology”, he said. And using the same technology, the e-broadcast project will put the power of information in the hands of villagers, Chief Minister said.

The project will provide authentic information to the common men even faster than the ‘Right to Information' Act, he said.
