MA­HAPE: Chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis, who was in Navi Mum­bai on Satur­day for the in­au­gu­ra­tion of a data cen­tre, said that the state gov­ern­ment has made 150 ser­vices on­line so far and by Oc­to­ber 250 ser­vices will be pro­vided on­line.

Fad­navis said, “Our ob­jec­tive is to en­sure that res­i­dents do not have to go to gov­ern­ment and semi- gov­ern­ment de­part­ment of­fices to get their work done. It will be done by a click of a mouse or on a mo­bile phone and save time.”

Fad­navis said, “We want to bring trans­parency in the work­ing of the gov­ern­ment and also in­crease the ef­fi­ciency of work. Our stress will be on adapt­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy. Our data that has been saved abroad should be saved within the coun­try.”

He said, “At present, digi­ti­sa­tion work of the po­lice sta­tions has been un­der­taken. Pri­or­ity is be­ing given to fil­ing of first in­for­ma­tion re­port through a dig­i­tal process. It is the duty of the gov­ern­ment to serve the cit­i­zens un­der the right to ser­vice act. We are liv­ing in an in­ter­net­driven world and hence have to adapt to the times.”

He added that the cen­tral gov­ern­ment has se­lected some cities to be de­vel­oped as smart cities and the state gov­ern­ment has on its level cho­sen 10 cities for the devel­op­ment.

Re-em­pha­siz­ing state’ s com­mit­ment to strengthen IT In­fra­struc­ture, Fad­navis said: “Ma­ha­rash­tra has al­ways been among the lead­ing des­ti­na­tions pro­vid­ing qual­ity in­fra­struc­ture to com­pa­nies and cre­at­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, es­pe­cially in the IT sec­tors.”
