Video conferencing is an area which is effectively being used in improving the quality of governance. In Gujarat, we are using it especially in education and medical field. SWAGAT (State Wide Attention on Grievances by Application of Technology) – an online grievance redressal programme is an initiative whereby our CM directly interacts with people at various levels. It has won UN award for the Best Interaction with Citizen-Centric Service. I am hopeful that more departments across the nation shall adopt this technology for better governance.

In Gujarat, we are utilising the facility of video conferencing for healthcare and education. If any major operation is happening, it is videocast to all medical colleges across the state. Similarly, there is a collaboration with ten universities in the US whereby every year lecturers deliver lectures to students of Pt Deen Dayal Petroleum University through video conferencing. Under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, all schools in the state are being connected through technology and if teachers are not available, lectures are still being provided through teleworking.

Collaboration over video and audio nowadays has become an important tool for efficient communication, productive meetings and saving time. However, the adaptability and usage is not as high as expected, mainly because of poor availability of tools. Revolabs microphones have an edge as they offer great audio quality, are totally cell phone interference free, are small and easy to handle, highly secure & encrypted, and are cost-effective as well.
