Soon Tamil Nadu will have fully computerised districts to promote e-governance in the state. While inaugurating the 43rd annual convention of the Computer Society of India (CSI) and the 25th South East Asia Regional Computer Confederation Conference, Chief Secretary K S Tripathy stated that the new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) policy of the State Government would aim at broadbasing the IT industry in the State as part of the efforts to bring development as an inclusive phenomenon.
He stated that Tamil Nadu has a well-established e-governance network in place. The State Data Centre is being upgraded and it will be accessible to users soon. Already, all the blocks and taluks are e-connected. In the first phase, seven districts have been identified for the purpose.” The Chief Secretary appealed to the captains of industry to ponder over green technology to reduce waste and increase production. The government's idea is to make technology reach the rural areas. The Government is making an efforts to set up Internet-enabled kiosks in 5400 villages in the State.
