With police offices, jails, hospitals and other services coming under e-Governance, Madhya Pradesh would soon become an “ideal state” in the field of e-governance, Sam Pitroda, the advisor to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, said.
“Besides establishing systems like e-order, e-summons and e-library, police offices, hospitals and jails would also be controlled through e-governance,” Pitroda said.
It would be beneficial for the state to also link universities, reserved institutes and industrial groups with knowledge network, he said, adding that e-connectivity would also be made available to all the gram panchayats soon.
The number of pending cases in courts can also be brought down considerably with the use of information technology under e-court scheme, he said.
The advisor, to PM on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations, said education, health and rural development were priority sectors for Madhya Pradesh.
Sam Pitroda said that Bhopal could become a global-level ‘environment city’ because of its biological, botanical and natural wealth as well as sources of traditional energy.
