For this project Panasonic India has donated 50 smart phones to study the usage of smartphone-enabled social information system by the SHG members. Panasonic India will also train 50 SHG members of Kandi SHG Federation, Murshidabad. Panasonic has made this contribution to improvise the livelihood of rural community.
