Imphal: State Chief Secretary D S Poonia today inaugurated an e-governance consultative workshop on, ‘Citizen Centric e-Government’.
He said that by August this year the government will offer online 42 government-to-citizen (G2C) services through the state portal.
Mr Poonia said the Department of Information Technology will soon be providing specific email IDs to all the state officials, after the completion of mapping of the domain names, which is in final stage of implementation.
Under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) – the Common Services Centre (CSC), State Wide Area Network (SWAN), State Data Centre (SDC) and State Service Delivery Gateway (SSDG) were mostly under the approval stages and Manipur has now become the first state in the country to successfully implement all the four major projects.
Speaking on SDC, he said that the data centre hosts a few applications, including the file tracking system (FTS) application, which has resulted in bringing efficiency in the secretariat.
It also hosts the website of the State Government of Manipur.
Mr Poonia also elaborated on the district e-governance societies formed under the plan for speeding up the implementation of e-governance at the district level, saying, ‘The societies have been formed and they are very active in the state.
Recently, we issued Rs 9 lakh to each district team for promotion, publicity and awareness on NeGP.’
He said the government has planned to create an IT special economic zone (SEZ) and has chosen Accenture as consultant to achieve its goal.
Accenture is currently making the detailed project report (DPR) on the project aimed at creating an IT SEZ. (UNI)
