What percentage of villages in India are served by telephone/cell-phone services?

Question by ricochet: What percentage of villages in India are served by telephone/cell-phone services?
I’m working on some ideas for overseas development projects and I wondered how easy communications are with villges in rural areas of India. Do you know roughly what percentage of villages lie in areas served by telephone/cell-phone services (if only the villagers could afford to use them).

    no u dont want to devolop phones in villages definatly not, because one ppl wont be able to afford it, two many that live in villages live with most of thier family and realtives, indians are very family oriented ppl. if u still want to improve thier communication u should try really poor suburban areas, but from my few vists to india, i noticed that EVERYONE HAS A FREAKIN CELL PHONE, its a very fast devloping country i am amazed by thier continous improment. ( this is refring mainly to where i have seen india, maily in the state AP, so u can still try but not sure if it would be the greatest thing for them, try electricty)
