Kerala CM to make Total e-Governance declaration

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will make the Total e-Governance Kerala  declaration on May 25, as Kerala becomes India’s total e-governed state.
Laptop for online learning studentsMinister for Transport Antony Raju will preside over the function, which will be attended by Chief Secretary VP Joy and Secretary Electronics and Information Technology, Rathan U Kelkar, among others.

Besides digitising the delivery of government services to the people by making them transparent and inclusive, total e-governance will also ensure inclusion of all sections of the society, including the less privileged and marginalised.

The achievement enables online delivery of government services by using technology and platforms. The Government has built a single window service delivery mechanism called e-Sevanam which integrates more than 800 plus government services online.

The state IT Mission has also created a set of digitised platforms and applications including e-Office File Flow, taking it down to the village office level.

The delivery of all vital services has already been digitised, covering all key domains including health, education, land revenue, documentation of properties, public distribution system and social security payouts.

The state has also carried out a clutch of major projects like eDistrict, K-Swift, EHealth, ePDS, eCourt management, ERSS, Pol App, Cyber DOM, KITE, HSCAP  and Digital Survey Mission.

Kerala IT Mission, the nodal agency for implementation of digitisation initiative, has made all services easily accessible for all people.

The total e-governance will help bridging the digital divide by making digital infrastructure to all at affordable cost, which is critical in transforming Kerala into a digital society to achieve sustainable economic growth.

The roll-out of KFON (Kerala Fibre Optic Network) will be a decisive step forward in this direction. Kerala stands out as the first Indian state to declare access to Internet as a citizen’s right.

Kerala also emerged top in the National e-Service Delivery Assessment conducted by Government of India.
