Staking Claim for Digital Pride

August 05, 2022 |

It is a sign of changing times that a once administratively derelict Jammu and Kashmir is now making distinct efforts to provide digital services to a more informed and knowledgeable public. Chief Secretary Arun K. Mehta’s exhortation and praise of people behind this turnaround that they must be constant and consistent in their efforts to promote digital governance to ensure fair and timely administrative solutions is like icing on cake.“The ongoing digital revolution in the UT reveals the true face of our services. People can easily learn about development works being done anywhere in Jammu & Kashmir through the Jan Bhagidari online platform,” he said recently. Corruption, once the habitual norm in J&K, is now in governance speak anathema. Digital governance has ensured that we do away with the necessity of visiting government offices. The Public Service Guarantee Act now puts officers under pressure to deliver services within the stipulated time, or face financial or administrative penalties. Your property is now safe under the “Aapki Zameen Aapki Nigrani Land Record Information System”, a digital service that gives prompt updates on land ownership, etc. The revenue department is fully digitised. As on date, there are 200 online services being provided by the UT government, which in itself is an amazing and outstanding achievement, given the speed by which it has been introduced and activated. Bio-metric attendance has been made compulsory in all UT schools. Students are being encouraged to give online feedback on the quality of education being provided to them. The Jal Shakti Department has a robust digitised billing, feedback and grievance redressal system and the public is now better informed about government-run hospitals. Digitisation is now percolating downwards till the block level. Land passbooks will soon be issued to facilitate implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Gati Shakti and Digital India GENESIS initiatives. SP offices are being ordered to become more online friendly. The determination to all records and services available online indicates the determination of the UT administration to integrate its services and make them more citizen friendly. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an unprecedented demand for digital technology solutions and e-governance in initiatives. Technology is now seen as a great enabler for governance and service delivery to both citizens and businesses. India in general and J&K in particular can be expected to claim their respective pride of place in the global digital economy in the coming decade.
