Placeholder: The Maharashtra government and Microsoft have collaborated to develop a strategic framework for smart village adoption and to identify an impact-driven, public-private partnership-enabled implementation model to transform Harisal into India’s first smart village. Interventions must be pivoted around three core pillars: ensuring last mile access, providing technology infrastructure, and fostering a sustainable ecosystem. Today, Harisal boasts of doctors in Hyderabad enabled to diagnose patients remotely, has a Government Digital Services Center, a Digital Class room, a telemedicine center, digital agricultural advice systems, and a host of other solutions. We are creating a model that can be replicated at scale of creating a digital village, to change the lives of digitally underserved populations and solve long-standing challenges for this rural population.
