Judging by the pace of progress so far, BharatNet may struggle to meet its new deadlineMarch 2019as well
Last month, when the government kicked off the second phase of the BharatNet project, it marked another timeline reset by another government. Yet again, there was a new timeline for this project that aims to deliver high-speed broadband to all 250,000-odd village panchayats for use by their residents.
