This document provides an overview of rural kiosks in India, drawing from information we have gathered from the media, Internet web sites, academic studies, interviews with NGOs, and a number of personal visits to project headquarters and actual kiosks in rural villages. Most of the information presented in this document was not collected through formal studies, and so it should not be taken as verified truth. Nevertheless, our hope is that the contents provide an accurate, if impressionistic, view of rural kiosks in India.
