ABSTRACT

Information is one of the key resources for the implementation of development infrastructure and requires an implication of the various levels of public and private sectors including involvement of participation at the local, national and global level. Implementation of information infrastructure for the sustainable development depends on several essential factors like, quality and quantity of optimal data, easy access at the grass root level, inclusion of modern IT methods with cheaper tools and transparent flow of information. Information flow would be treated as an alternate wealth for a developing society and this project would have taken this challenge of breaking the lags and leads of information barriers by creating an appropriate robust computer network across the country to articulate the free flow of data and information. Being one of the populous country in this region having 120 million population with more than 80% of them living in rural area without modern amenities of life, introduction of innovative information and communication technology (ICT) though came late, has extemporized the livelihood of those ignored masses. Where simple infrastructures, like roads, highways, bridges, industries, etc. are inadequate in comparison to any other developed countries, there high aspirations can only accelerate the pace of progress for information technology. It is inevitable, the current global situation demands that a nation should adopt the application of ICT towards overall development of the community. Invasion of ICT has drastically implicated the dynamic behavioral pattern of the general peoples in this region. Key issues to this development trend demands establishment of improved communications infrastructures and liberal national policies.

Internet in a sense has given aspirations to the raising societies of the emerging nations and unprecedented opportunities to masses of millions towards new horizon of explorations by forming virtual networks and communications interfaces. Electronic communications has broadened the range of interactivity between wide range of users by diminishing distance, culture and boarders by forming a means of coherence between global societies. Interactive coexistence between information dividends led to subsistence e-governance and increased adaptability in IT amenities. Widespread use of Internet has increased information dissemination leading to enhance interactivity in developmental activities and human resource development. One of the main beneficiaries is accumulating unconnected masses of the developing societies, including huge outgrowing beneficiaries from the developing countries. The SDIN is acting as an agent to disseminate knowledge and information through computer network by instigating formation of a unique tool of communication between development partners in the country. Remote villages along the coastal belt, including northern and southern exteriors are in lack of information updates. Specially, communities in coastal rural areas are deprived of augmented information and always remain backlogged in the events of natural disaster, sudden geographical unbalances, storage of agriculture data, knowledge on cultivation of lands, information on productivity of commodities, etc. Formation of community based virtual information centres along these regions would act as the nucleus of amenities of livelihood, including attainment of benefits like education, health, business and others aspects of livelihood. Balancing of technologies with symmetry of collaboration by producing optimum connectivity and bandwidth of communications would lead to a Internet connected society through abundance of information.
