The information, communication and computing technologies have become a part and parcel of our daily life. The computing and Internet facilities have become the basic needs for all the educational and research organizations. As a result, Computer Centre has become one of the most important centralized facilities of any institution/university. I am extremely thankful to our Hon'ble Vice-Chancellor Padmashree Dr. Lalji Singh of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi-221005 for giving me the opportunity to serve this great university in the capacity of Coordinator, Computer Centre. It's indeed a matter of great pride and honor for me to work as the Coordinator of such an important centralized facility centre of this university.
The basic purpose of our computer centre is to extend the computing and internet facilities to more than 30,000 users including teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, research scholars, administrative and ministerial staff of the university consisting of more than 140 departments/schools/centers. Presently, the Computer Centre provides the internet access through four leased lines including 1.5Gbps (1:2) and 100 Mbps (1:1) of the BSNL, 100 Mbps(1:1) of the Reliance and 1.0Gbps NKN lines. The centre is equipped with a team of more than 12 highly skilled and efficient officers and more than 15 supporting employees. Itís needless to mention that only the strong dedication, motivation and consistent efforts of all the members of this Centre have made it possible to provide the best possible computing and internet services to such a large number of users of this great university.
