The Tamil Nadu government has launched an e-governance policy to provide various services digitally
Special Features of the policy
Establishing an integrated environment for delivering seamless Government to Citizen (G2C), Government to Employee (G2E), Government to Government (G2G) and Government to Business (G2B) services in a cost-effective manner, besides increasing productivity levels within government are some of the key objectives of the policy.
A State-level apex committee for e-Governance headed by the Chief Secretary would be formed for periodic review of the implementation of the policy and would provide necessary guidelines for its implementation.
The departments would earmark 0.5 per cent of their annual budget for e-Governance and would be encouraged to increase the same to three per cent in a phased manner over a period of five years.
Considering the mobile phone penetration among the people, all departments would ensure that their applications are compatible to mobile access and utilise the common mobile infrastructure provided by Government of India and the State government like Mobile Service Delivery Gateway (MSDG) etc
Mobile applications will be developed in English and Tamil Language using open standards, to the extent possible. The State Portal and Government Departmental Portals will be made ‘mobile compliant’ in due course
The policy made it clear that the departments would ensure use of Open Source and Open Standard technologies for software development, unless the use of proprietary technology is unavoidable. This would enable respective departments to prevent vendor lock-in, unnecessary cost on user licences and long-term cost liabilities.
