    Abstract

    This paper is based on the premise that the innovations based on Information and Communications Technology-ICT in public service and rural market development in a developing country may lead to increased sustainable livelihood opportunities, which in turn will contribute towards building a harmonious society. Amartya Sen’s ‘capability approach’ is suggested for measuring the effectiveness of such technology led innovations. The paper provides examples of ICT based innovations, in public service and rural market development in India. It emphasizes that, considering rural market as a strategically viable business segment would enhance sustainable livelihood opportunities in a society striving for social harmony.
