It is great to hear that 4500 shops in Pune division have registered for the Prime Minister’s Wi-Fi Access Network Interface (PM-VANI) initiative.
This initiative aims to provide broadband services at fair price shops and will enable the installation of Wi-Fi routers in public places. This will allow citizens in public places to be continuously connected to the Internet for free.
The scheme will be extended across the state by the supply department, and it is good to see the state taking action to improve the layout of the supply department, ensuring correctness in measurements of market goods at the campaign level, and taking action in case of errors. Additionally, the provision of computers to start the e-distribution system is also a positive step towards improving the efficiency of the supply department.
It is also encouraging to see that small shopkeepers in public places will purchase and install Wi-Fi routers while running their business. This not only benefits the customers but also provides an opportunity for the shopkeepers to improve their businesses.
The state Food and Civil Supplies Minister, Ravindra Chavan, has suggested that a new proposal should be submitted regarding the increased space of the Metrology office. This shows that the state is taking measures to improve the infrastructure and facilities available to the citizens.
