Dear All,
The Centre for Internet and Society, in collaboration with the Centre for
the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore, is in the process of
formulating a Networked Higher Education Initiative which seeks to look at
the digital turn in higher education in India. We are in the process of
consolidating a document with some key concepts in the area, but are also
hoping to put together some statistical data about usage in the country. My
own work has always been more in the field of qualitative analysis, and I
was wondering if people here are familiar with some quantitative studies
done about India, in the following three areas:

1. Internet and access in India
2. Computer use and access in India
3. Mobile phone usage and access in India.

If, apart from the basic details, there are any leads for statistics of
stratified groups and statistics in the context of schools and universities,
that would be fantastic. If you have any leads on studies that you are
familiar with, or organisations/people working in the area and can put me in
touch with them, it would be very helpful.
