Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma today said the government has envisaged a roadmap to enhance the delivery mechanism, where services for the benefit of the people are addressed through different means including adoption of technology.
Delivering a speech after inaugurating a workshop on enterprise architecture for North Eastern states here, the CM underlined the importance of e-governance and satellite based technology to assess flood and other natural calamities and design a response system to tackle the challenge of such situations.
As politicians and government servants, we should have a single agenda to serve the people. Our intervention has to be effective to ensure that best possible, fastest and most efficient system is adopted for a transparent and accountable monitoring of schemes and projects for the welfare of the people, the Chief Minister said.
The government has embarked on a mission for digital transformation but the challenge lies in sensitization. Unless and until the public is sensitized on available technology, its effective use will be negated, Sangma said.
He told the gathering that through video conference the government was holding review meetings with DCs of all districts in the state every second Tuesday of the month to discuss and chart out measure for effective implementation of schemes and programmes.
The tech-savvy Chief Minister also elaborated on the importance of IT in governance and an approach for result oriented IT enabled services for the welfare of common good.
The objective of the workshop was to chart out a long term vision for India as a Digital Enterprise.
The workshop focused on digital transformation initiatives as a move towards one citizen one government vision and build India as a digital enterprise - and was organised by the North Eastern Council (NEC) in collaboration with National Informatics Centre (NIC).
