Abstract:

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is broad term that includes computer hardware and software, digital broadcast and telecommunication technologies as well as digital information sources online or offline. Traditional ICT tools e.g. TV, radio and telephone have already established their credibility and effectiveness in promoting the developmental schemes in rural and marginalized areas. The study was conducted in three districts viz., Junagadh, Rajkot and Amreli of Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. Two talukas were selected from each district. Total twenty-four villages from six talukas were selected randomly and ten farmers from each village were selected as respondents. Thus, a sample of total 240 farmers was considered for the study. The dependent variable undertaken in this study was knowledge regarding ICT services. About one-third (64.17 per cent) of respondents had medium level of knowledge about Information and Communication Technology services followed by 21.25 per cent and 14.58 per cent respondents had high and low level of knowledge, respectively.
