Bharat Net is an ambitious initiative by the NDA government to fully connect all Gram Panchayats in the country through optical fibre cable (OFC) by bridging the connectivity gap between gram panchayats and Blocks for providing broadband.

The Digital India programme is expected to generate higher investment and create more jobs. The project, launched in 2012, is being executed in two phases. Phase-1 has been successfully completed in December 2017, covering around one lakh gram panchayats.

Bharat Net Phase-2 will bring in additional 1.5 lakh gram panchayats under this scheme by March 2019. However, the government expects to complete Phase-2 before December 2018.
