Abstract

Development is neither simple nor straightforward linear process. It is a multidimensional exercise that seeks to transform society. This exercise of transforming the society always requires the need of mass media; this is because mass media multiplies the effect of development in a community. Mass media have seen different forms from its inception and each mass media have different impact on community development. In the 21st century, print and electronic medium to a large extent have been overcome by new media or information, communication and technology (ICT). The direction and pace of development in ICT have led practically all world economies to recognize the improvement of ICT in catalyzing activity, empowerment of society and bringing about major socioeconomic transformations. In India this effect had been felt immensely. India has made a mark in the global market at its capacity to use ICT. But how much of it has been used for development? This paper will examine the extent to which information, communication and technology has contributed towards community development in India. The paper analyses data to find out contribution of ICTs in providing broader development benefits to all Indian citizens. Many ICT based institution have taken place over the last decade and some positive effects have resulted. But however these successes have failed to meet the bull’s eye. The various social and economic constrains also becomes a stumble stone for development. Efforts are made by government as well as private enterprises to use ICT for positive development. Key Words: Community development, ICT, E-Choupal, E-services, E-governance, Mobile development ICT Enabled Community Development in India.
