BJP president Nitin Gadkari said e-governance can check corruption and “red-tapism” to a considerable extent while addressing BJP’s national convention on ‘e-governance for good governance’ in Mumbai. Gadkari said information technology (IT) should be used to bring in transparency, rule of law and speed in working process and dynamism. “Corruption can come down by 70-80 per cent because of e-governance. It can benefit a person and life can become easier with it,” he said. The BJP leader also directed the IT cell of the state unit to prepare a module of e-governance in corporations and zila parishads for good functioning. “Application of technology in social life and rural development can prove beneficial to the people,” Gadkari said.
