During 2004, M S Swaminathan Research Foundation initiated steps to extend its model of ICT-enabled development activities to different parts of the country in the consortium mode involving several partners (IDRC, Tata Trusts, DIT, IIT-Chennai, ISRO, NASSCOM, Microsoft, INCOIS, etc.). Since then, the list of partners has been growing day by day (list attached herewith). Thus, Mission 2007 has triggered a national movement for bridging the urban-rural digital divide and for ensuring knowledge connectivity in areas relevant to the day-to-day life and livelihood of rural families. The then plan was to provide knowledge centres in all the 600,000 plus villages of India by the 60th anniversary of India's independence that fell on the 15th August 2007. Since early August 2007 this network is referred to as "Grameen Gyan Abhiyan (Rural Knowledge Movement)" as suggested by several partners. They suggested that from now onwards the concept should become movement. Some of the GGA partners are testing different technologies and developing applications for ICT-based rural centres. Academicians, Corporate Sectors and Policy Makers could use this platform for knowledge and technological empowerment.
