E-governance in Tamil Nadu has been a major focus of the state government in recent years. The Tamil Nadu e-Governance Agency (TNeGA) was established in 2007 to oversee the implementation of e-governance initiatives across the state.
Some of the key e-governance initiatives in Tamil Nadu include:
- e-Sevai: This is a one-stop portal for citizens to access a wide range of government services online.
- Sakthi: This is a comprehensive e-governance framework that integrates all government departments and agencies.
- e-District: This is a web-based platform that provides citizens with access to a range of government services at the district level.
- Common Service Centres (CSCs): These are village-level centers that provide citizens with access to a range of e-governance services.
The Tamil Nadu government has made significant progress in e-governance in recent years. The state has been ranked among the top e-governance states in India.
Here are some of the benefits of e-governance in Tamil Nadu:
- Improved efficiency: E-governance has helped to improve the efficiency of government services. Citizens can now access services online, 24/7.
- Reduced corruption: E-governance has helped to reduce corruption in government services. Citizens can now track the status of their applications online, and there is less opportunity for corruption.
- Increased transparency: E-governance has increased transparency in government services. Citizens can now see how their tax dollars are being spent, and they can track the progress of their applications online.
