Minister for Information Technology and Communications Ponnala Lakshmaiah inaugurated Sikshana, a capacity building programme for Mee Seva, here Monday. The multi-level training programme will upgrade skills of officials and Mee Seva kiosk operators in the State.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said when Mee Seva was introduced 18 months ago, only 10 to 12 services were offered. “Today, we offer 104 services of different government departments. This means complexity. Hence, there is a need to  provide training to the officials concerned as well as kiosk operators for each new service. As the inclusion of services would be a continuous process, training and updating of skills will be a continuous process.”

The State Government is planning to offer 330 services by next year and ensure that transparency and quick services are hallmarks of Mee Seva. “There will be 7000 Mee Seva centres in the State by end of the year. Increasing number of services requires additional staff. Mee Seva would be generating about 25,000 more jobs for the youth at district and mandal levels,” Ponnala explained.
