In line with our national vision of Digital India, ICICI Bank has partnered with the Government of Gujarat to transform Akodara into a Digital Village.
In this village, technology acts as a catalyst for development, enabling local business opportunities, education and improving health & welfare. ICICI Bank has setup digital facilities in Financial services, Education and Healthcare services within the village.
Local financial transactions happen through mobile banking, debit cards and internet banking instead of the conventional mode like cash. All the transaction points in the village for purchase or selling activity have been digitized to make it a cashless village.
The schools in the village use technology to impart education to village students through integrated projector cum computer with smart board interactive features provided by ICICI Foundation. Teaching happens with the help of audio-visual content mapped to curriculum in the classrooms. Schools have also been provided School management software to manage academic and administrative tasks such as student details, student attendance, school time-table & examination scheduling and examination results.
Villagers have access to quality medical advise in the village through e-health centre presence. Medical Diagnosis happens in the e-health centre in the village which is transmitted to medical experts who then analyze and provide medical advise accordingly.
