 "I am looking at a day when people will not have to visit government offices because the government will be available on their mobile phones," said Fadnavis while talking about Apne Sirkar programme of the state government. 

The payment would be done by point of sale devices, he said at a conference organised by Amazon Web Services in Mumbai.
"I believe that the technology has the ability to make government transparent and accountable," he said.
 
"I have asked Andy (CEO, Amazon Web Services ) to partner with us to make Pune a startup hub of India," he said.
 
Fadnavis said that the government is providing education on digital platform in 11,000 villages. Earlier people deserted zilla parishad schools and sent their children to private schools."Now people have brought back their wards from private schools as the learning outcome in zilla parishad schools is better," he said.
 
Although India missed the industrial revolution, it is the epic centre of digital revolution, he said.
 
During the summit, the AWS, a US based cloud computing company which is a part of e-commerce giant Amazon, announced that it will create a  'region' in India in Maharashtra. The company will set up a cluster of data centres in a region. The announcement is part of the $5billion investment proposed by Amazon in India.
