How insights from transaction data are being used to improve a wide range of digital services
NEC Corporation India, a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, and CSC e-Governance Services India Ltd. (CSC SPV) have formed a strategic alliance to jointly develop and deliver new digital services to approximately 900 million citizens living in rural India. As part of this alliance, NEC India has become CSC SPV’s third-biggest shareholder. NEC India and CSC SPV have also created a joint working group to develop innovative digital services for rural citizens.
CSC SPV was set up by the Indian government to oversee implementation of the Common Service Centres (CSCs) scheme. CSCs are access points to various digital services, such as essential public utility services and social welfare benefits, and contribute to a digitally and financially inclusive society.
NEC India and CSC SPV have previously worked together with leading Indian banks to provide financial inclusion services for residents not covered by traditional bank branches and ATMs. Building on that success, they are aiming to unlock new opportunities and bring additional value to citizens and CSC operators through this strategic alliance.
Every day, more than 470,000 transactions occur at CSCs across India. By leveraging NEC’s expertise in areas such as AI and data analytics, NEC India and CSC SPV will elucidate insights from transaction data to launch new services or improve the variety and efficiency of existing ones, across a wide range of sectors, for the benefit of citizens.
