Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, while congratulating the people of border villages in Chamoli, said that this service would benefit the remote areas of the state. It would also facilitate people in advancing their trade, products, as also online mapping in frontier areas. With this service, people in the border areas will have facilities for making online applications and various other tasks.
The work being done by the government in the direction of e-governance would also benefit the people of the marginal areas. He said that, during the investor summit, Mukesh Ambani had been approached in Mumbai to provide Jio services to the state.
