Rural Telecom - mental flaw?

[Topics under debate]: GOOD GOVERNANCE
___Help make this manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!___
    The private sector is far more efficient at using capital
resources.  Hence, instead of setting up a "fund" for Rural Telecom, the
self-serving GoI could make it easy for private companies to get into
the rural areas by offering incentives like no license fees, etc.  This
would be a logical step for an illogical institution (GoI) and a
submissive population!!
The proposed telecom development fund will be set up under the public
account of the general budget. The revenues to be realised from the
existing operators together with other dues recoverable from the
migration to the NTP and the revenues from new operators may be credited
to this fund. The management of this fund will be entrusted to the full
telecom commission.
