The following article is an initiative of State of Andhra Pradesh and is intended to create awareness amongst the readers.
“We are (in) interesting times”, said Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu as he kicked off the 20th National Conference on e-Governance held on 9th January 2017 at Visakhapatnam. Talking about India’s recent demonetisation and shift to digital payments, the CM said that no country had witnessed such a massive shift in a short amount of time.
Joining him at the inauguration were several state ministers and Union ministers including M. Venkaiah Naidu. There was also a host of high profile speakers from both private and public sectors talking on a range of issues like Internet of Things (IoT), Data analytics, Cyber Security, etc. The choice for hosting the conference in Andhra Pradesh was obvious. As a state, Andhra Pradesh has been at the forefront of e-governance providing nearly 725 e-governance service to rural areas. The state tops in energy efficiency and internet connectivity all of which enabled Andhra Pradesh to top the Ease of Doing Business ranking in India.
Naidu went on to say that the government will R&D and try to get all technologies available to the general populace, such that real-time governance (RTG) becomes a reality. The foundation for e-governance in Andhra Pradesh, however, was set more than two years ago with the e-office project. The mission was to render every government file in a digital form. While the work still continues, the AP government has provided a link with real-time updates to view the progress so far.
Venkaiah Naidu, Minister of Urban Development, said cashless transactions are playing a crucial role post demonetisation and e-governance willnn also curb leakages in the system and make governments more accessible to the common man.
