ICT for Urban & Rural Management: Emerging Trends & Innovations

Views: 1.3K

When we talk about innovation, the first thing we ask that how much innovation do we need? Do we need innovation just for the sake of innovation, or are we genuinely concerned about helping the poor. So when we pick up IT solutions or systems for e-Governance, we have to look at things from the perspective of the user. Will the solution be useful for the user? The most innovative is not necessarily the most productive

Principal Secretary, Power, Government of Jammu & Kashmir

Today ICTs have tremendous potential. They can be used to bring efficiency into almost every human endeavour. For instance, these days they are using e-Governance ideas for having a better system of managing garbage in our urban areas. In case of NREGA, ICTs are helping to revolutionise the system of payments and worker attendance

of Manipur

ICT has brought innumerable benefits, one of which is the mobile telephone. Mobiles are now owned by majority of the people in the country. ICTs have also led to the creation of several e-Governance apps through which a plethora of services have been created for people in rural and urban areas
