The government is organising a national conference on eGovernance at Jaipur to review the action plan for strengthening the implementation of citizen-oriented services in the country.
The two-day conference, starting February 18, is being organised by the ministry of personnel, public grievances and personnel and will be attended by IT managers of central and state governments, software solution providers and industry think-tanks.
The various stakeholders interact and exchange opinions and views, discuss issues and problems and also analyse various solution frameworks and necessary action plan for firming up the road map for e-governance, minister of state for personnel, public grievances and pensions, Prithviraj Chavan told reporters in New Delhi Friday.
These conferences have proved to be very useful in creating awareness in service providers dealing with IT and have helped as a useful forum in which new initiatives of various states and central government in IT are explored, he said.
The focus of this year's conference is "ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in education- enhancing quality and reach" and topics like eGovernance, leveraging mobile technology for better service delivery and public distribution system with direct access to citizens through eGovernance will be discussed.
The theme for the conference this year is "eGovernance from citizen's perspective" which will explore the use of ICT transforming governance from the perspective of beneficiaries of the services, Chavan said.
Awards in categories like excellence in government process re-engineering, best government website and innovative technology usage in eGovernance will also be given out during the conference.
