It was stated earlier that the National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN), which will be able to provide internet connectivity to about 2,50,000 villages, will be completed by 2012-13. But as per the latest input from DOT, it will have to wait till 2014-15. Since the work is being prolonged, the estimated allotment for the project may be increased from Rs. 20,000 crore to Rs. 25,000 crore.
In some countries like China, the projects are usually completed much before the time limit. But in India, it seems, that almost all projects take more time than the estimated time. Think about the Shivaji Stadium in Delhi, which was to be completed before the Common Wealth Games in Delhi. Even after more than 2 years, the work is yet to be fully completed.
