Arunachal Pradesh CM Pema Khandu shared that the State government is giving a big push to the usage of Information Technology (IT) in governance, and by 2021, all government offices will become paperless e-offices, while launching Wi-Fi hotspots for Tawang and Dirang districts at Tawang.
The Chief Minister said the advantage of having paperless e-office is to stop manipulation, ensure transparency and provide easy access of services to the people. Khandu revealed the Wi-Fi services have been rolled out as per the budget announcement and similar hotspots were launched earlier in several educational institutions in the State capital.
He added that 66 access points in Tawang and 12 in Dirang would be installed, which would be capable of providing Wi-Fi service to 124 users at each access point. Khandu also lauded the Tawang district administration for carrying out the Sarkar Aapke Dwar (government at your doorstep) programme effectively across the district.
Under the Sarkar Aapke Dwar programme, the deputy commissioners of the districts conduct jan-sunwais (public hearing) on the first of every month in their respective districts to resolve public grievances on the spot. Union Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju, was also present on the occasion.
