VISAKHAPATNAM: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has invited innovative IT projects to simplify and strengthen the e-Governance in the state. Reminiscing his efforts to bring the e-Governance in the united Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu said that unless there was new thinking, planning and execution, there would not be any progress in any sector. With out-of-box ideas and effective planning with  advanced technologies in the administration would aid e-Governance, Naidu added.

The Chief Minister inaugurated a two-day 20th National Conference on e-Governance, jointly organised by Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and National Association of Software and Services Companies, here on Monday.

Delivering a key-note address, the Chief Minister said that people were yearning for simplified and hassle-free services for which the governments should adopt technologies and check wastage and leakages. “The government is utilising available technologies for identifying issues and initiating developmental activities. The  Polavaram irrigation project is being  monitoring with the help of the CC TVs and drones. With the help of the advanced technologies, the government is conserving resources,” Naidu said.

Naidu urged the Union government to set up National Block-Chain Technology Institute in Vizag and National Cyber Security Centre at Tirupati. Naidu also wanted upgradation of the National Institute of Digital Technology as a centre of excellence.

On the occasion, union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said that the demonetisation was also a part of the Digital India. The ban of the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes was the first step and the government would initiate more measures to ensure strong growth.

With the demonetisation the entire currency had returned to the bank. Out of 125 crore people in the country, 3.7 crore people only announced that they were paying income tax and of them 99 lakh only announced that their annual income was Rs 2.5 lakh, 1.97 crore people with Rs 5 lakh annual income and just 24 lakh people revealed that they had Rs 10 lakh income.
