Replying to the motion of thanks on President's address in the Lok Sabha, PM Modi remarked that the NDA Government had taken up the work of connecting India’s villages with optical fibre network in mission mode. Shri Modi said, “From 2011 to 2104, under the National Optical Fibre Network, only 59 villages benefitted but that too did not ensure last mile connectivity. Procurement too was completely centralized. But things changed when we formed Government in 2014. We decentralized procurement. And, today optical fibre network spans across seventy six thousand villages pan India with last mile connectivity.”
