Overview

This book explores the recent social changes in Indian society, resulting from the applications of new communication technologies such as satellites, cable television and the Internet. Though far from becoming an information society, it shows how India is making remarkable progress in that direction through an informatization strategy: the process through which communication technologies are used for furthering socio-economic development.
