An extensive plan has been devised by the UP Government to replicate the success of rolling out eGovernance in Noida in other districts of the state as stated by chief secretary Alok Ranjan in a statement. The Uttar Pradesh government has also decided to offer permissions for construction projects, online. At present, the Noida Authority is offering around 152 online services that were offered on experimental basis and have brought transparency in the system and therefore the state government has felt the need of the same to be repeated in other district as well.
“We have planned to introduce the online services in other districts in UP, phase-wise. Our intention is to put the entire government-services system online. The platform not only ends corruption, but also improves the efficiency of the system. Steps have been taken to put services in sales tax, commercial tax and others online. We have uploaded various forms. General public need not visit government offices,” Ranjan said.
According to Rama Raman, chairman and CEO of Noida Authority, after the frequently repeated complaints of corruption, the decision to implement e-Governance in Noida was taken. He further added that after implementing the eGovernance in Noida, the visits of general public to Noida Authority has been reduced, considerably, as they get updates on work being done on their registered mobile numbers or e-mails. The eGovernance initiatives taken by Noida Authority has also helped in easing the discomfort of common public in obtaining no objection certificates even before beginning the project.
