A way forward for India


In an era of increasing digitization with Web 3.0, Artificial Intelligence and regular Tech Disruptions, PM Narendra Modi's vision of India's Techade can be realized through a vigorous and all-pervasive Digital push. Under Modi's leadership, giant strides are being taken in the field of IT and new-age technologies for better delivery of governance to citizens. Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh in his address at a national conference on e-Governance said, "Closer synergy among the research, academia, industry and start-ups is the way forward for India to become Atmanirbhar in true sense". "Whole of Govern-ment, Whole of Nation and Whole of Society" approach has become the new norm to achieve the desired results in the shortest span of time.
Expressing happiness that NCeG is coinciding with the Constitution Day celebrations, Dr Jitendra Singh read out the Preamble of the Constitution with all participants in the Inaugural Session, as 26th November is celebrated as the Constitution Day to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India in 1949. During the event, Dr Singh presented the National Awards for e-Governance (NAeG) under 5 categories of the NAeG Scheme - 2022 to 18 e-Governance initiatives at Central, State and District levels, Academic & Research Institutions and Public Sector Undertaking. The theme of this Conference was "Bringing Citizens, Industry and Government closer". The Minister stated that Digital innovation will play an important part in the next decade for governance to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy.
India has been building open digital platforms, which are tremendous force multipliers and underlined that this is critical and unique in being affordable, interoperable, API-driven (and hence scalable), mobile-first in vernacular languages, and allows India's entrepreneurs to build on the rails of these platforms to innovate and solve problems at scale and for trust. These are not only digital transformations, but also innovations in the design philosophy of citizen-centric solutions with huge socio-economic implications. Jammu and Kashmir have achieved milestones in e-Governance with distinctions in implementation of Amrit Sarovar, AKAM, PMGSY, Agriculture Income, ease of doing business, digitization of land records, providing land passbooks that have been possible through transparency, teamwork and technology. As the saying goes, 'well begun is half done', this initiative by Government can bring tremendous change in the working system and will play an important part in the next decade for governance to transform India and Jammu and Kashmir specifically.
