and industry representatives are happy that technology seems to have brought about among officials of the finance ministry in scheduling and attending meetings. Those outside Delhi are especially grateful. Some of them say that until three years back, they would seek appointments with finance ministry officials and their staff would get back to them, asking them to do so through fax. When the requests were faxed, the replies would come after some days. Then, appointments would be fixed later. By the time they would go to North Block for the appointment, invariably the official would have gone to attend some other appointment or some other hassle would crop up. These inconveniences have stopped now. Appointments are fixed via email. Officials are well aware of the subject of the meeting and meet at the appointed time, say some and representatives.
