    IN: Nagaland: Poor mobile services irks APO

    Angami Public Organisation (APO) has expressed serious concern over the poor mobile service/connectivity provided by various telecom companies operating in Nagaland. In a press note, APO vice president, K.T. Vilie said the quality of internet and call connectivity/clarity has become a frustrating experience, with poor signal reception and repeated call drops without being able to have even a short conversation.

    Vilie said that the biggest drawback was the dismal speed of internet connectivity. He said despite the Central government giving much emphasis on Digital India mission and promoting e-Governance for effective delivery system of governance and utility services to the people, the poor quality of basic internet services offered by various telecom companies have turned the Centre’s flagship programmes into a mockery.

    IN: E-Governance – Opportunities and Challenges

    The 21st century has seen us become a knowledge-based society and the world has shrunk into a global village with erudite, better informed and connected citizens — all meriting a re-think in the way we govern ourselves. There has, therefore, been a clarion call and a felt need for a change from the archaic, bureaucratic and governmental control to a more user–friendly, simplified and single window systems. Over the last 70 years, physical governance has failed and is now slowly but surely witnessing a paradigm shift towards electronic (e) governance or e-Governance. Not only it offers the ease and convenience of delivery, but it also reaches out to the masses at their doorsteps in the remotest corners of the country with efficiency, rapidity, transparency and in a cost effective manner, besides providing a single window opportunity. One can seek services from the comforts of ones home and vice-e-versa deliver the same through smaller well kept offices rather than the conventional, shabby, dingy, dilapidated, ill–lit and unkept premises of a typical ‘Sarkari’ building.

    India taking the digital highway

    Technology is a game-changer. For Indian Government adopting technology means a fundamental shift in the way its services are offered, in the way its people are empowered and in the way it is perceived by its people. Not only does it impact the economy, but it also impacts society. Urban India is already seeing the fruits of its adoption, but the challenge here is for the shift to work at the grassroots of the society.

    It may still be ages before food, health, education reach the grassroots of the society. But technology adoption is a different thing. The good news is that, once adopted, it has the potential to challenge the corrosive effect of corruption across institutions, thus increasing the chances of food, health and education reaching the grassroots. Digital India is a bold initiative that aims to achieve this.

    Data export controls in China: implications for digital business

    All digital business in China will need to consider the implications brought by the draft Measures for Security Assessment of Export of Personal Information and Critical Data (“Draft”) which were presented by the Cyberspace Administration of China (“CAC”) to solicit comments from the public until 11 May 2017 and are expected to take effect in June 2017. This is an important legislative move following the new PRC Cyber Security Law, which will take effect on 1 June 2017 (“CS Law”), and which extends the legal application of the controversial Article 37 under the CS Law. This article generally imposes a local storage obligation on critical information infrastructure operators (“CIIO”) with regard to personal information and important data collected and generated out of their operation in China. If transmission of such data out of China is necessary due to business needs, clearance procedures shall be followed according to separate rules to be formulated by the CAC. The Draft is meant to clarify details for further implementation of Article 37 of the CS Law. However, in its current form as presented to the public it appears to go far beyond the CS Law, which will have a substantial impact on all online based business including digital business.

No doubt, the digital economy is a key driver of growth and development.

It has in its armory new tools for "tackling persistent development problems" which has attracted the focused attention of political classes across the universe with India being no exception to this ubiquitous rule to mollify, if not end the inequities and inequalities of the extant societal order. At the same time, the UNCTAD has not glossed over the "host of policy challenges, including the needs to bridge the digital divide, minimise potential of negative social and development impacts and deal with complex internet-specific regulatory issues",

He replies to questions regarding scholarships and business loans, while also taking the time to greet overseas workers who are happy to see the OWWA administrator waving to them online. By leading his institution in its digital journey, Cacdac has transformed OWWA into a modern, responsive agency, much to the delight of many of its members.

    Unfortunately, we don’t see similar initiatives in other agencies, including departments that have so many services that few people know or understand. Hopefully, this will soon change based on the presentation given by Assistant Secretary Alan Silor of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) during a recent conference on “Digital Transformation for the OFW Sector” organized by the Blas F.
