Tech for transparency

Chandra-Shekhar-KumarThe Government is trying to engage eGovernance solutions for the convenience of the people, particularly in the Transport Department and its related industry. Three-four things which are vital include that the citizens do not want to be harassed while obtaining licences, or while paying taxes. A bus owner too wants to get permit in a transparent manner. That is why, enforcement of all eGgovernance solutions are being made.

The three key points are vital components of a smart city: transparency, efficiency and inclusiveness. Firstly, like for registration of vehicle, we have many solutions for citizens, one being when you buy a vehicle, you get a registered number by the dealer nowadays easily. For example, for college students we are trying to ensure they get their driving or learning licence on the campus only.

We want to reduce the interaction of the officials and citizens to avoid corruption or the scope of corruption. Nowadays, licences can be availed online, e-enforcement has been launched and the netizens can access services and know their status through SMS alerts.
