250 services to be put online by Oct, says CM
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.”
