This will also remove the shortcomings of our system. Efforts are being made that a certain part of every department’s budget is being spent on IT and technical development.

The information of all government departments will be available under one roof and hence  speed up activities and save energy. Based on modern and green technology, the CM felt the need to connect the State Data Centre with Solar Energy. A step in realising the vision of the Prime Minister’s Digital India, the establishment of the State Data Centre, is a great leap in the digital sector.

All citizen centric services will be accessible through this State Data Centre. It will also reduce burden on the public exchequer.  Modern biometric systems and 24×7 CCTV surveillance makes State Data Centre even more secure and reliable.
