To facilitate development and training in rural areas, the Indian Space Research Organisation is starting the 'Jhabua Development Communications Project' in Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh. The project, a forerunner to the gramsat -- a satellite that will solely cater to the needs of the rural population -- will broadcast programmes for rural development and education through 150 direct receiving terminals and 12 talk-back terminals. The project, which will be on for two years, will beam both live and pre-recorded programmes through the INSAT-2C.
