Based on the reports of second administrative reforms, the government has taken the initiative of open and transparent governance by accepting e-governance reforms, said V Narayansami, minister of state for personnel, public grievances and pensions at the 16th national conference on e-Governance, Jaipur.
Narayanasami said that the prime minister recently held the national development council meeting and had mentioned clearly that while affirming the country's need for accelerated growth, the government does not view growth as an end in itself. "Our aim is to improve the life of "aam aadmi". Growth should be inclusive; thus development should be citizen friendly. When the state grows, the central government grows too and vice versa. Thus it is a reciprocal growth," he said.
Narayanasami said that the changing India of today needs to adopt the changing e-governance practices of the world to resolve its administrative problems. He said that aspirations of the people are increasing and thus their demands are increasing.
“The adoption of the e-governance program is important because of the increased demands of the people who demanded better governance” he added. Narayanasami hailed the Information Technology Revolution and innovation in the field of technology and the transparency aspect of governance which has been essentially facilitated by adoption of technology in governance, for providing better governance to the people. "RTI 2005 is a landmark act; it is not harming the government but we have found out that 90 percent of the government departments have become more efficient since the implementation of the act," he said.
With the time bound delivery of services Act, Narayanasami said that the central government is bringing a uniform law for time bound delivery of services to the people. "Rajasthan government has already passed this act for the convenience of its people," he said. The second administrative reforms commission had envisaged to move to a completely paperless office by 2017, Narayanasami added.
He said that the government has also tabled the public procurement bill in the parliament. E-governance has facilitated transparent processing of government tenders increasing efficiency and savings of the various departments. "In one year, we aim to reduce the time taken for each service delivery by half and introduce efficiency," he said.
