N. Kiran Kumar Reddy
Chief Minister, Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh has emerged as frontline State when it comes to the implementation of e-Governance projects in India. The State has been keenly focusing on growth and development of new and emerging technologies in the areas of healthcare and education. It has been active in using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) to offer government services at the citizen’s doorstep.
Such e-Governance projects improve the outreach, make services more transparent, and reduce response time.
Mee Seva, a citizen centric facility, has been providing convenient access to citizens in an easier, faster and transparent manner. At present, 40 Government to Citizen (G2C) services are being availed and more than 100 services are planned to be delivered to the citizens across the state by December, 2012.
It gives me immense pleasure to share that the government of Andhra Pradesh is the Partner State for the eighth edition of eINDIA 2012, which is being organised at the prestigious Hyderabad International Convention Centre, Hyderabad, India, on 15th and 16th November, 2012. The Anniversary Celebrations of Mee Seva project will be held along with the eINDIA 2012.
I welcome all the thought leaders, think tanks and private players, who possess the necessary technological and social expertise to facilitate change and make society better. Let us all participate in eINDIA 2012, which is a celebration of e-Governance and be a part of the change revolution that the state of Andhra Pradesh has proudly entered into.
I warmly welcome all delegates and look forward to their participation in what promises to be an immensely enriching event.
