We have done in around one lakh households. And we plan to expand to one million connections by the year-end. It will create an atmosphere for entrepreneurship,” Lokesh added.
“Majority of the Indian population is young and enterprising. And this helps develop products and technologies that can be taken to the needy. Entrepreneurs need to look at crisis as an opportunity.
