Deploy mobile tech for service delivery to citizens, says Kerala CM

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, FEB.10: The Chief Minister, Mr Oommen Chandy, has said that mobile technologies could be deployed to make use of the infrastructure created in e-governance and enhance delivery of citizen-centric services.

Speaking at the national conference on Government Transformation Forum (GTF 2012) that concluded here the other day, he said recommendations from the forum would be considered for taking forward the National e-Governance Programme here.
SERVICE DELIVERY
Mode of delivery of services has assumed importance in the realm of rural development.
The accent is on service delivery to all sections of the society at their doorsteps, alleviating poverty and improving education, health, trade and investment.
Considering the unprecedented growth of mobile communications as a cheaper, affordable and flexible device, rural communities should also be allowed to benefit.
Speaking at the valedictory function, the Industries and IT Minister, Mr P. K. Kunhalikkutty, said that m-governance is the future technology towards smart governance.
The State Government will provide all necessary support to the investors especially for new innovations in the field.
EFFICIENT SERVICES
According to Mr Shashi Tharoor MP, Governments everywhere, and certainly in India, are conscious of their obligations to be accountable to their citizens.
They aim to provide them services through the most efficient, rapid, transparent, incorruptible means possible.
These obligations must be fulfilled in a world that is being radically transformed by information technology.
He also stressed that technology is absolutely essential to real participation in nation-building. And, although mankind cannot live by technology alone, the Information Revolution has helped ‘upgraded the lives of millions of people.
