Twelve thousand villages of Uttarakhand will get internet connectivity in the second phase of the BharatNet project. The Centre gave its nod to implement the BharatNet 2.0 project in Uttarakhand on Monday when Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat met IT Minister Ravishankar Prasad in New Delhi.

A time-bound implementation of the state-led model of the BharatNet project is very necessary because of Uttarakhand's difficult geographic location, strategic significance and vulnerability to natural disasters.
