Digital India aims at to transform the country into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. The programme (Digital India) will be implemented in phases from the current year till 2018.
The programme is transformational in nature and would ensure that government services are available to citizens electronically, Sharma said.
Stating that e-governance has already started implementation in Manipur, he said that it was yet to be fully implemented.
Once it is implemented under the initiative of the “Digital India” programme, it will help rooting out corruption from the state, he added. According to BB Sharma, Manipur government’s Computerisation of Personal Information System (CPIS), a programme to computerise details of employees of the state government was an initiative of e-governance.
Under the initiative, Manipur government has able to bring transparency in the governance through e-governance.
Now the e-governance has become an initiative of the Digital India programme. From this, it can assume that this programme will able to bring transparency in the government, he said.
Sharma said that Digital India is a campaign launched by the government of India to ensure that the government services were made available to citizens, electronically by improving online infrastructure and by increasing internet connectivity or by making the country digitally empowered in the field of technology. €
Launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 2, 2015, the vision of the programme is inclusive growth in areas of electronic service, products, manufacturing and job opportunities etc.
One of the objectives was connecting the rural areas with high-speed internet networks and improving digital literacy, he said.
He added that Digital India is centred on three key areas, digital infrastructure as a utility to every citizens, governance and services on demand and digital empowerment of citizens.
“Let us look forward for the successful implementation for this project for the brighter and prosperous India and hope India will again be called a golden sparrow,” Sharma concluded.
