Popularity of e-services like online Aadhaar identification and e-payment of water and electricity bills has reached a sizable audience in the State ever since they were introduced. In 2015 itself, the number of registrations for these government e-services has grossed 60 lakh in the State. Currently there are over 7,000 centres in the State for e-services following the emphasis and steps taken by the Centre for e-governance. Reducing error, saving time, easy authentication and instant access are some of the factors behind the e-service mechanism taking root in the State.
All this was revealed at a seminar on ‘Integrated Digital Solutions for a Smarter Tamil Nadu’ conducted by FICCI along with Infocomm and ICT Academy of Tamil Nadu, here on Monday.
Setting up of necessary infrastructure, software, data centres and cloud capacity to work out e-governance services in a larger magnitude is currently underway.
