Solar energy brings a shining solution for Assam’s villagers

Village Square

Bradeswar Rabha is a small farmer who cultivates bananas in his backyard in Muduki village of Assam. His income of Rs 1.50 lakh per year from banana farming was not sufficient to meet the needs of his family.

Rabha set up a solar-powered lok seva kendra (LSK) as a secondary source of income. He now earns an additional Rs 1.50 lakh per year through this. Thanks to his solar-powered LSK, Muduki village, which falls under Rani administrative block in Kamrup district, has uninterrupted and low-cost access to digital services.

The solar-powered LSK – like all the LSKs – includes a laptop, printer and photocopier, besides an inverter and earthing kit.
