The Chief Minister of Orissa Mr. Naveen Patnaik unveiled the e-Governance and capacity building road maps for the State. He said this initiative would make the administration efficient by ensuring greater transparency and accountability in delivery of public service to facilitate moral and material progress of all citizens.
The road maps are the first initiative under the National e-governance plan (NeGP) and have been prepared with the assistance from National Institute for Smart Government (NISG) and Wipro Infotech. Naveen said though 15 departments have been selected as mission mode projects, initially only Works, Rural Development, Water Resources and IT departments would be taken up for implementation. Over 200 services of 15 departments have been identified for implementation of the new initiative.
