Free Wi-Fi zone Developed in Naxal-Prone Orchha

Abhujmad: Orchha- a naxal-affected locality of Abhujmad, Narayanpur now can access the internet for free. Situated 65 km from the district HQs this Wi-Fi facility was installed on request by the students who were deprived of education during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The establishment of the zone was based on orders by the Collector Rituraj Raghuvanshi. “There was a tribal hostel and school in the area due to which the need for the internet was always required. It was a backward area so connectivity could not be there, so the wifi hotspot was started there. Now, 24 hours internet facility would be available within a 5 km radius of Orchha, and if more demand is required, then immediately more wifi hotspots would be started,” said Raghuvanshi.

Interacting with the media the locals expressed joy over the decision by the state government. With this, Abujhmad’s children can get online education through free internet. People are now able to take benefits of digital payment, online forms and online banking facilities. Residents are also being updated about current affairs.
