A new video on the TelecentresAfrica Study Visit to India produced by CTA and People TV focusses on the observations and lessons learned of the African participants. The Study Visit was organised by CTA from 29 November to 8 December 2009. An African delegation of 14 different countries visited the states of Kerala, Karnataka and West Bengal, and had a 2-days conference with Indian colleagues from government, private sector and NGOs in Delhi. They visited telecentres (called Common Service Centres), set up within the framework of the National E-Governance Plan in the three states and had meetings with government and private sector staff involved in the set-up and management of these centres.
