One of the pillars of Digital India is to provide pan-India internet access through broadband highways. In sync to this, BharatNet is being successfully executed to provide optical fiber connection to 2,50,000 Gram Panchayats by 2019. Some experts have suggested that India can leverage its current cable infrastructure to provide last mile internet access via cable lines and ensure internet for all.

In this regard, MyGov is inviting citizens of India to give suggestions on policy and technology infrastructure that can lead to this access revolution, fulfilling the below-mentioned objectives
1) What are the possibilities from policy and technology perspective to maximize the usage of our cable network?
2) What are the potential challenges that could emerge in this process?
3) On comparing opportunities to challenges, does this emerge as a viable option?

now days dish tv is common in India including rural areas also. Dish Net Internet Service is the best way to connect internet service to all over India . some ares have some technical issues or any nature issue so cable TV still not reach because of cables installation not possible there.we can use dish system that directly connected to satellite uses can connect internet threw it.it is easy to install & easy to maintain & is use working on any weather.

1) Technology for providing broadband over cable already exists. It is called Ethernet Over Cable. EOC
2) Implement the digitization of set-top-box policy with a hard deadline.
3) Implementation of technical solution will become easy and it will open up large opportunity for server cable operators.
4) A EOC client will be installed at home, which will be able to give cable TV channels on TV and also on mobile devices over WIFI
5) Cost of laying cable will also get eliminated.

1. Give this project task to engineering and management students from IIT's, engineering colleges, management schools in different states. Many professors & engineers will be willing to work on this project for benefit of India.
2. Invite foreign companies to invest in broadband infrastructure in India. Provide them free land, 1 day approval to start project, 1-2 years tax free business opportunity in India. In return India gets broadband infrastructure, jobs, social & economical development

मान्यवर, भारत सरकार के विज्ञान और प्रौद्योगिकी विभाग जैसे अंतरिक्ष विभाग , परमाणु ऊर्जा विभाग, विज्ञान एवं प्रौद्योगिकी विभाग, जैव तकनीक विभाग में आपसी सहयोग इस प्रकार हो की उनके अंतर्गत होने वाले शोध एवं विकास में सामंजस्य हो एवं डुप्लीकेशन ना हो. ऐसा देखा जाय की अगर एक विभाग के किसी संस्थान ने कोई प्रौद्योगिकी विकसित की हो तो दुसरे विभाग उसका उपयोग करें , डुप्लीकेट ना करें, विशेषक्ष एवं इंजिनियर का आदान प्रदान हो. इन विभागों में प्रदत्त सेवा को मान्यता दे वरिष्टता में समावेश किया जाये धन्यवाद
