With Tamil Nadu government’s push for increased e-governance in the state, Tamil Nadu has secured third slot from last year’s eighth in e-transactions across the country this year. The state also plans to add more than 300 public services to electronic mode soon and also launch 600 additional common services centres in the state.
Gujarat leads the country with 66.88 crore e-transactions, followed by Madhya Pradesh (24.53 crore) and Tamil Nadu comes third with 20.79 crore e-transactions. It may be pointed out that every month Tamil Nadu had either bagged the second or third slot, which helped it secure the third slot at the end of the year. Last year Tamil Nadu had recorded 7.07 crore transactions whereas this year it has 20.79 crore pushing it up the list. The state has recorded over 63 lakh e-transactions since December 1 this year.
